"...instead of representing a triumph for Mr. Perez, 59, Icon Brickell
has become a symbol of the excesses of the building boom in downtown
Miami. Since 2003, 83 towers with nearly 23,000 condo units have been
added to the downtown skyline, from fancy Brickell Avenue through the
more modest Biscayne Corridor, causing an oversupply of epic proportions
in this city of 400,000 people.
