We have hardly begun to see what can be imagined and created to delight those who have more money than they know what to do with.
But the pool at the Icon Brickell, downtown Miami’s “largest condo complex” is a start (Pool deck at luxe Brickell condo tower might be closed for a year, Jan. 14). The two-acre pool deck has Japanese Cherry trees for shade.
But now there are problems. The pool leaks. Will a patch job fix that?
Maybe all the pipes have to be torn out and replaced.
Never miss a local story.
Maybe all the tile has to be replaced. No one knows how long that would take, how much it would cost or even if it’s doable.
Could be the one who makes decisions about these things has determined, “No, this isn’t OK. It’s just too decadent.” Especially when those who risked their lives to build all this received poverty wages for their trouble.
