You'll need to keep all of this in mind if you're buying a Mr C Residences property. 

Repealed Toll Road Laws

Two years ago a law was put in place to increase the amount of toll roads in Florida, and this turned out to be a controversial move with the residents of the state. This year, SB 100 is looking to repeal that law, something that Mr C Residences new construction condos residents will be grateful for.

Changes To COVID Passports

As you well know, many businesses and institutions in recent months have required a 'COVID passport' to show you were either vaccinated or had a negative COVID test, before you could enter.
