PHOTOS: Inside Zaha Hadid’s Miami towerJanuary 23, 2020
The developers of One Thousand Museum, the first and last residential building designed by starchitect Zaha Hadid in the western hemisphere, unveiled photos of the tower.
Since the 62-story, 84-unit tower in downtown Miami was completed last summer, roughly 50 units have sold, revealing a roster of buyers that includes a nursing home magnate, investors from the Czech Republic, and the owner of one of the largest Greek food importers in North America.
Developers Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Gregg Covin, Kevin Venger and Todd Michael Glaser, along with the late Hadid, broke ground on the building at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard in December 2014. The skyscraper, which replaced a former gas station, was the subject of an episode of the PBS documentary called “Impossible Builds.” The building’s exoskeleton is made from 4,800 precast panels that were created in Dubai and shipped to Miami.
Hadid, a Pritzker prize-winning architect, died in March 2016, while the building was under construction. She also designed Related Companies’ 520 West 28th Street in New York.
Last year, ahead of its completion, the developers were seeking a $331 million condo inventory loan, according to a call for offers obtained by The Real Deal.
Harvey Daniels of One Sotheby’s International Realty is the sales director. Half-floor units started at $5.8 million and full-floor residences go up to more than $24 million.
The tower features a rooftop helipad, a wellness center with a gym and yoga facilities, relaxation pods and spa rooms, a sky lounge, a bank vault, a multimedia theater, an off-site beach club and a juice bar.
