Icon Bay, Along With Sculpture Park, Wraps Construction (Photos)

Related Group celebrated the completion of the 300-unit Icon Bay condo tower in Edgewater last week.

Closings are expected to begin within days.

As part of a street closure deal with the city, Related agreed to build a public sculpture park behind the building, to be maintained by the unit owners at Icon Bay.

went there for the opening..3 great sculptures plus a magnificent mural.
great neighborhood park with a dog park and some nice benches to look at the bay.
wish we had one like this in every dead end street of Edgewater.

They really cheaped out on the pool area compared to what was in the renders….and there is no privacy. It’s basically in the park, and anyone who lives in this area knows that any public area is bound to attract the homeless. I cant imagine paying the prices they were asking for this and having a recreation deck that is basically a public pool..not very relaxing.

Agreed, the pool is tiny for a 300 unit project (and right in the “public” park)

I know the park is open to the public but is it public or private property? If it is private then no bums if it is in fact city of Miami then they’re screwed.

Good question about it being public or private, and Curbed further confused me:

The park has the potential to be a real, and necessary neighborhood center. Visually the greensward connects seamlessly with the building’s amenity deck and pool. However, the barrier of ‘public’ (who the park is ostensibly there to serve) and ‘residents only’ (who will pay for its maintenance) is as strict as ever. It is figuratively and literally Icon Bay’s back yard.

By the way, one of those ovals was supposed to be a fountain or water feature according to the renders.

I can’t believe the comments on here… So Miami should not have any parks because the rich might get offended by the homeless? Every great city has parks and plazas. Its not a matter of not building these necessesary public spaces; its a matter of taking care of the homeless problem. Maybe when the residents of these luxury condos see the problem on their doorstep they’ll take action.

My comment isn’t about a public park, I personally think the park is nicer than the empty lots that were once there, but I am saying that the renders of the pool deck were far nicer than the actual product, and if you are paying 500+ a square foot you probably don’t want your pool/amenities deck smack dab in the middle of a public park.

Send some extra money to the city from your paycheck instead of empty moralizing.

I actively volunteer at soup kitchens. Look up the French Revolution. The king who was beheaded had the same arrogant attitude.

its not much of a park anyway so i really dont see anyone hanging out here other than the residents. To be honest the pool is open but if it was enclosed then you would miss out on the view of the river. Im sure if it becomes a problem and the residents complain then they will put up a wall separating the pool from the park.
