WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A planned South Florida condo that shared its name with a group of Islamic extremists is getting a new identity.
ISIS Downtown is a major development being built in West Palm Beach. ISIS is also one of the names for the al-Qaida splinter group behind the beheading of the American journalist James Foley.
The Palm Beach Post reports the new building is now being called 3 Thirty Three Downtown.
The developers haven't commented on the change. Tim Harris, the past president of the Realtor Association of the Palm Beaches, said the prior name had become ``scarily negative.''
