So, if the residents have to evacuate, are the repair crews out too? Is it now a tear down?

I'd imagine the first step will be to see if they can stabilize things enough for engineers to evaluate whether anything is fixable, though it sounds like "not". Kinda strange, as they somehow thought it was fixable previously. It's a smaller building (by comparison) and old, so I'd be willing to guess that tear-down is the best option.

Bad engineering can be deadly.

Between insurance and real estate prices at the upper end, this is actually good news for the owner. The housing shortage nationwide is acute, and South Florida's rents have increased by an average of 52% y/y. That is not a typo.
