The developers of One Thousand Museum recently released a new batch of renderings showcasing the late Zaha Hadid’s forward-thinking design. The new insight, featuring a look at amenity spaces, came in conjunction with the official topping off of the building on February 23rd.
The renderings depict the Sky Lounge, a double-height aquatic center with an indoor pool, a “Lifestyle Center and Spa,” and additional common areas. The common spaces of this project are incredible spaces to workout, relax, and simply enjoy life in.
Additional amenities include a private bank-quality vault, a multimedia theater, and a private dining room. This project is also the only private residential skyscraper in all of Florida to have planned private helipad.
Miami’s construction projects never cease to amaze, and One Thousand Museum pushes Miami to new heights, as it is the first skyscraper in the world to utilize lightweight glass-fiber reinforced with concrete (GFRC) as a permanent framework in the construction of the tower’s structure.
The construction of this unique project has been one of the most challenging builds, due to the projects curved exoskeleton. This one-of-a-kind exoskeleton is comprised of 5,000 pieces of GFRC, which was manufactured in and imported from Dubai.
Developer Louis Birdman had the foresight and Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid had the vision to dream of creating One Thousand Museum. Plaza Construction has played the instrumental role of creating the dream into reality.
According to Birdman, this building, even in its current state stands our as the most iconic architectural work in Miami’s skyline.
“We’re excited to have developed something so unique and special for Miami,” Birdman said in a press release.
Not only does this project enhance Miami’s notoriety, but it also redefines the standard of luxury for residential projects.
“To date, the project team has faced some major tests, but the project has remained on schedule and we’re looking forward to the successful completion,” said Brad Meltzer, president of New York-based Plaza Construction, which is overseeing the construction of One Thousand Museum.
The next phase of One Thousand Museum is the interior build-out of both amenity spaces and unit interiors. All 83 half and full-floor units will include Poliform kitchens and closets, Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances, Apure interior LED lighting, and Crestron home automation systems.
This 62-story tower, which broke ground in 2015, is set for completion in 2018. The project gets its name from its location across the street from Museum Park. Prices for each unit starts at $6 million USD for a 4,600 square foot residence and all units will have multiple oversized balconies.
