Do you remember how that building Gianni destroyed and replaced with a new wing looked like?The funny thing is that I knew people who lived there before it became the Versace Mansion. It was called the 'Amsterdam Palace' back then and was basically subdivided into a bunch of cheap apartments. A couple of them contained some punk rockers I was friends with at the time (mid 1980's). The building was largely in disrepair then but I remember walking all around the courtyard and outdoor hallways enjoying some of the cool architectural features.

Yeah...I remember that my friends bought the Revere and were in the middle of rehabbing it when Versace offered them $8M+ a few months later. That was a huge profit in a very short time for them. They then bought the Ocean Front hotel at 1226 Ocean Drive (or so).Do you remember how that building Gianni destroyed and replaced with a new wing looked like?
The Amsterdam Palace's courtyard was a replica of a building Christoper Columbus' son built (in Santo Domingo, DR, I think).But when it was 'Amsterdam Palace' it was basically the Mediterranean design. Big, square courtyard surrounded by two floors of open walkways. Itilianate style, barrel roof, etc. It was in total disrepair but I'm sure you can picture it.
