Icon Brickell Pool Will Be Closed For 12 Months Starting December 5

1,800-unit Icon Brickell has set Monday, December 5 as the date that the pool will be closed to start repairs, according to a letter obtained by broker Michael Light:

[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.

Sincerely,

iconbrickell Master Association]

There will be no alternative pool, and the rooftop pool at the W hotel will also be closed.

Rental rates have been plummeting, and a special assessment will be required to pay for repairs.

Light says that dropping sales prices are a good buying opportunity in anticipation of completion.
