In December 2011, Crossfade first wrote about the impending arrival of House, a nightclub concept from Living Room veteran Mark Lowe.

Months and eventually years went by with no word on the fate of House. We'll admit, we just thought it was going to join Miami's long history of never-materialized projects.

But last year, New Times news blog Riptide reported on what was really holding up the space -- politics and red tape.

"If I could have wrapped my brain around the nightmare that this process has been, I would never have believed it," Lowe says. "The level that certain individuals will go to prevent a perceived competitor from opening is beyond imagination. The level of harassment and corruption that this project has endured is disgraceful. I literally lost almost all faith in the political process."

But somehow, Lowe has managed to keep the dream of House alive, and he will finally welcome people to Wynwood's first megaclub on May 16 and 17.

But the question remains: Was House worth the wait? Well, Crossfade took a private tour of the space last week and was in awe of the attention to detail. We had our doubts, but the hard work Lowe put into the space is amazing.

"I think, in many ways, everything is basically the same box, wrapped in the same lights, with the same ceiling," Lowe explains. "I want to believe that this is an industry filled with creative forces pushing the envelope, though. I want to believe that people are willing to take a risk on their art. House is the definition of that risk."

Been happening for a while but Wynwood Popularity is soaring, while Wynwood Coolness-Factor is in sharp decline.

This place reminds me why I moved out of Miami. Pure scum wretched people with no morals.  This is why our world is polluted with the scum and pure atrocities that it has.
