One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects, has passed the halfway point for the 62-story building which is on track for delivery in 2018. The building will be Zaha Hadid's first residential skyscraper in the western hemisphere and is being developed by Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin, Kevin Venger and the Regalia Group with Plaza Construction as the general contractor. The tower will be among the tallest residential buildings in Miami and required a deep foundation that drilled to a record of over 170'. One Thousand Museum's design features an exoskeleton design which acts as the buildings structural support. This allows the developer to remove columns from the units, creating expansive glass views of Biscayne Bay.
One Thousand Museum is over 50% sold and required over a $450 million buildout. The tower will feature only 83 units ranging from $5.5 million to over $20 million and 4,600 SF to over 10,000 SF. Amenities will include Miami's only private rooftop helipad, state-of-the-art fitness center, spa, two pools, indoor aquatic center, and a sky lounge.
