They put alot of thought into that name. All they had to do was check a list of other projects they have done to come up with that.

The name Icon and the design don't match at all. Icon sounds 1980's Miami Beach and this building seems more French inspired. I sure hope they aren't paying someone to come up with this crap.

Funny you mention that... There is an ICON in Miami, and its ridiculous. I had a buddy who lived up on the 50 something floor, beautiful buildings. Ive also stayed at the W hotel there. Nothing 80's about them haha.

Just curious, but does a name really matter? I agree it's a generic name, but when I first heard the name, it was out of my mind five seconds later. Some of you guys seem really bothered by the name. I was just curious as to why?

Usually I could care less what they want to call a building. I don't care if Feldman decided to put $2M apartments in his new building and name it "F^*k You Poor People Tower. But sometimes when something is just so cheesy you can't help but comment on it. It cheapens an otherwise nice addition to the skyline.

Wasn't this project originally called "Manor?" That was a far better name - luxurious and classy, just like the tower itself.
