ARCHITECTURE

How to wreck a building’s historic character

“The Eden Roc’s architecture faces a foolish threat, one in which its authentic, historic balconies could be replaced. To do so would be to destroy the Eden Roc’s historic character. The current owners of the hotel want to remove the balcony railings, with their original crimped concrete and geometric metal design, and replace them with contemporary ones made with glass (the better to see through). The request comes before the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board on Feb. 12.”
