Icon Brickell’s pool is set to close next Monday with construction expected to last 12 months (bet the WAY over) according to its condo association.
Unfortunately for residents, an alternative pool will not be provided “due to limited” alternatives and “associated costs.” There was talk that WET Deck on the 50th floor, which is part of the same complex, would be an option but I’ve heard that will be for hotel guests at W Miami, formerly the Viceroy.
The full letter is below, via Miami Luxury Homes:
First and foremost, the iconbrickell master association would like thank the entire community for their engagement and participation during the initial phase of our pool deck project.
By now, you may have already noticed some initial staging going on in various locations around the pool deck in anticipation of the full closing scheduled to take place on Monday, December 5th, 2016.
With that in mind, we have received several inquiries concerning the use of other pool locations. Due to limited pool alternatives and associated costs, other options were not financially viable. The Master Association Board, working with our construction partners will make every effort to ensure our new pool deck is opened within the 12 month plan for completion.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. We remain committed keeping you up-to-date on the progress of the project.

Construction will include replacing the tiles by the pool, which somehow were never slip-resistant.
They initially pegged the construction to last ‘around 14 months.’
Expect rents and prices to plunge because who knows how long construction will last.
