A developer in Florida has been forced to change the name of its flagship project “Isis Downtown”, after its association with the terror group.

According to the Palm Beach Post the West Palm Beach site is being built into a 16 storey waterfront apartment block. “It is scarily negative,” a source at the Realtor Association of the Palm Beaches told the paper.

The project is now to be called 3 Thirty Three Downtown.
