MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge has approved the sale of the oceanfront property where a collapsed Florida condominium building once stood to benefit victims of the deadly disaster.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Michael Hanzman ordered at a hearing Wednesday that the process begin to sell the site of the Champlain Towers South, which could fetch $100 million according to court records.

Meanwhile, residents of an 82-year-old, two-story apartment building in Miami Beach have been ordered to evacuate because of concrete deterioration.

The city is giving residents of Devon Apartments until next Monday to leave the building.
