Unfair Housing

Unfair housing is the cheeky slogan of the Phillipe Starck-designed SLS Brickell. Although we realize all housing is not created equal, South Florida seems to have a disproportionate share of the best and the worst. UM Law students claim hundreds of immigrants are being held in horrible conditions at the Glades County Detention Center in Moore Haven. Detainees are crammed into a filthy space, given insufficient and unsanitary food and water and are being denied access to lawyers, the pro bono clinicians say. Okay, maybe the detainees don't need a 200-foot-long swimming pool, but a clean toilet would be nice. [Daily Business Review]
