Daytona Beach Shores condos: Which properties remain restricted due to tropical storm damage?

About 30 properties in Daytona Beach Shores were deemed unsafe in the days following back-to-back tropical storms Ian and Nicole.

As of Tuesday morning, access to about a third of them, according to the city's list of building statuses, remains restricted.

The Sage 'n Sand apartment complex was removed from the latest list following the demolition of the two-story 29-room beachfront complex.

The properties are identified as either "P," for posted buildings, "P (limited access)," for posted buildings with engineer-specified limited access, or "R," for buildings released with conditions.

What do the building statuses mean?

  • Posted buildings: The city's chief building official has deemed the building or a specifically defined portion is unsafe; no one except for those involved with the structural engineer's assessment may enter.

  • Posted buildings with limited access: A structural engineer, retained by a condominium association or the owner, has determined the building is unsafe and may not be accessed except in the manner defined in the engineer's post-storm building safety report.

  • Released buildings: The chief building official has accepted the post-storm building safety report from a state-certified structural engineer; residents may return to the property but should note the unsafe building notice doesn't address possible building or fire code problems not covered in the report.
