Icon up for grabs?

Ugly, isn't it? What used to be such a beautiful, elegant hotel is now being taken down little by little, with the wrecking ball. The Grand Bay Hotel will soon become two large chrome and glass condos called the Grove at Grand Bay. A photo of the new buildings and plans may be seen here.

That big red iconic sculpture (for the Grove anyway) by Alexander Liberman, was supposed to go before the Martin's of the Terra Group got involved. For so many years it was up for grabs. But word is that it will be staying. The previous property owners had wanted to give it away, but the cost to transport it was just too much. Luckily the Martins appreciate the big red sculpture and it will be part of Grove culture for years to come.
According to David Martin COO of Terra Group "the Grand Bay Liberman Sculpture will remain at site." There were conflicting reports, but the amazing red sculpture will stay.

What a shame that they are demolishing that sculpture too. It really should stay with the new building.
