Our meeting with the Engineer and City’s Building Official concluded unsafe conditions with the building and the need for emergency action. Below is a copy of the Building Official’s email communication on this matter.

“Based on the Calc Engineering report received on April 10, 2019 for the Dania Beach Grill at 65 North Beach Road, the Engineer and myself have determined that there are unsafe conditions at the subject property. Emergency action needs to be taken based on 2017 Florida Building Code #116.5 (Broward County Administrative Provisions) to ensure the safety of the public and the employees. I am requiring as the Building Official that it be closed until the necessary repairs have been made to bring this building back to a safe condition. This emergency repairs identified in the Engineers’ report shall be done as expeditiously as possible”.

The meeting also concluded that the awning and roof mechanical equipment must be removed and the building secured immediately. Subsequently the same day, staff informed the tenant that the Beach Grill needs to be temporarily closed for repairs. The City has removed the awning and roof mounted equipment and secured the building with a fence. A follow-up and more detailed evaluation of the structure is needed in order to determine the necessary remedial action.
