Months after crowning Icon Brickell as Miami's top pool in 2015, the two-acre deck with three infinity edge pools is in need of some major reconstructive surgery, reports the Miami Herald.
The pool deck frequented by Icon Brickell residents, Viceroy hotel guests, and patrons looking to relax with an epic view of Biscayne Bay might be out of commission for at least a year with some significant repairs needed. The gist of the situation is clear: the deck needs to be re-retiled due to getting dangerously slippery when wet and the pools' piping needs an overhaul after leaking into the parking garage below. Who is to blame? That's unclear, via the Real Deal:
Each of the three towers' condo associations is in the midst of a lawsuit against general contractor John Moriarty & Associates, the Miami Herald reported. The suits claim there's faulty construction throughout, though the builder says it's the association's fault for not keeping up maintenance. Designer Arquitectonica is also named in the suit for alleged building code violations. Both the contractor and developer are facing legal action, while Arquitectonica faces a separate pending lawsuit regarding the alleged plumbing issues in the Viceroy's interior.
With the top amenity at Icon Brickell getting shelved for what looks like a lengthy period of time, how much will its units fall in value? Luxury condo competition is getting fierce in Brickell. Also, how is it possible to not to have a slip-resistant deck?
