Doral street-naming memorializes Surfside victim Nicky Langesfeld (includes video story)

The City of Doral named a street after a young woman who tragically lost her life in the Surfside Collapse. The city was renamed on Wednesday, June 22, a section of Northwest 114th Ave. as “Nicky Langesfeld Place” to honor Doral’s resident Nicole Lagesfeld.

She grew up in Doral Landings where her brother, Martin Langesfeld “would train together for the marathon and she would bring her dogs.” 

Langesfeld lived in Doral most of her life before moving to the Champlain Towers South with her husband, Luis Sadovic, and their dog, Capo. She went to Ronald Reagan High school and graduated from law school at the University of Miami and became an attorney. Langesfeld was only 26 and her husband was 28. 

“You don’t know when it’s going to be your last day when it’s going to be your last kiss or hug to someone,” said Pablo Langesfeld, Nicole Langesfeld’s brother, who spoke at the event.

This week marks one year since the Surfside Chaplin Towers collapsed where 98 people lost their lives.
