Last week, the board of the Trump Plaza condominium voted unanimously to remove Trump's name from the 32-story, twin-tower complex in West Palm Beach, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Following the deadly Capitol riot earlier this month, many of those who live in the South Florida condo complex have been increasingly eager to change the official name of their home.

According to the Seattle Times, residents will be expected to vote in a new name, with submissions due in late February.

The publication also states that the complex is just miles away from the Mar-a-Lago private club on Palm Beach, where Trump currently lives. Units at Trump Plaza range from about $1 million to more than $4 million.

“The Trump brand is damaged, so rebranding the complex is a wise move,” Burt Minkoff, a Palm Beach real estate agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, said per the Seattle Times.

Back in 2017, Trump Plaza signs on the roofs were removed during the process of renovation and last February residents voted not to replace them.

Furthermore, the Trump signs were removed at street level last summer following protests against police violence after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

According to the Seattle Times, some real estate agents have started pointing out on listings that the condo is no longer owned by the former president - and hasn't been since 1991.

Minkoff explains that the Trump name had been problematic for some time, however, the storming of on the Capitol made it “a real lightning rod.”

Trump has been accused of inciting the siege by continuing to repeat his unfounded claims of voter fraud.

Per CNN, the pro-Trump protestors attempted to obstruct the ceremonial counting of the electoral college votes to affirm Joe Biden's victory in the US 2020 Presidential Election.

The outlet also states that the breach of the Capitol delayed the process of affirming Biden's impending presidency as the House and Senate were forced to find shelter when the riots broke out.

As reported by Reuters, Trump urged his supporters to attend the rally in DC, the day the US House of Representatives and Senate were set to affirm Joe Biden's election win. He then told them to walk to the Capitol "to fight."

Four civilians and one Capitol police officer died amid the chaos, per Reuters.
