One Thousand Museum Approved by Miami’s Urban Design Review Boards

The City of Miami’s Urban Design Review Board has recently approved, with a unanimous vote, of Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum condo slated to break ground spring of 2014. It was love at first sight, and every facet of the preconstruction development had board members swooning- from the over-the-top amenities to the distinctive, futuristic architectural design.

As renderings of the tower have gradually been leaking and coverage of the development increasing, a wave of lively debate centered around its quirky design has developed on various blog sites. There is no doubt, whatever the opinion, that it has struck a chord in the real estate community; Zaha Hadid’s first skyscraper in the western hemisphere is simply irresistible. Aside from its ultra-modern concrete exoskeleton design, the latest renderings have presented another dazzling, gasp-inducing feature planned for the building: the Aquatic Center and Sky Lounge on the 60th and 61st floors, just under the building’s helipad and right about the penthouses. The rooftop pool will be enclosed in glass and will have an underwater glass wall for residents to enjoy the incredible view of the city as they swim.

The luxury residences are already on sale and are expected to fetch between $4.5 million and $30 million for the half-floor and full-floor units, rising to between $30 million and $50 million for the penthouses. The 61-story luxury tower will feature ample, customizable floor plans that offer beautiful city and water views, and will be situated in downtownMiamionBiscayne Boulevard, squeezed between the so-called Four Horsemen high-rise condos. Images of its interior spaces show items of furniture designed by Hadid, awash in pure white curvy surfaces indicative of her modern style. They will be offered fully furnished, including flooring, custom closets, and high-end lighting.
