12 Mar Miami Skyline Forever Changed: One Thousand Museum Tops Off
March 12, 2018
Last month, Downtown Miami’s skyline received the final piece to one of its most dynamic changes in decades. Designed by the late Zaha Hadid, One Thousand Museum, located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, officially topped off in February, making way for the soon-to-come grand unveiling of this innovative luxury building. Perched in Museum Park facing Biscayne Bay with its signature exoskeleton design, it is impossible to miss this incredible high-rise condo building. “We’re now one step closer to revealing Zaha Hadid’s forward-thinking design,” says co-developer Louis Birdman. “Even in its current state, the building already stands out as the most iconic architectural work on Miami’s skyline. We’re excited to have developed something so unique and special for Miami.”
The exoskeleton is not only beautiful, but also functional. The 5,000 pieces of lightweight glass-fiber reinforced concrete, which were manufactured and imported from Dubai, vastly reduces the need for interior support columns. Without the need for these columns, the luxury condo units within are designed with far fewer obstructions in sight-lines and in the interiors.
Surrounded by world-renowned intuitions of the arts, One Thousand Museum is directly adjacent and walkable to the PAMM Arts Museum, the ZIFF Ballet Opera House, Adrienne Arsht Center and the Frost Museum of Science. The property was developed by Louis Birdman and built by general contractor Plaza Construction. “This is a project that will not only enhance Miami’s skyline, but also redefine the standard of luxury for residential projects,” said Brad Meltzer, President of Plaza Construction.
It’s not only the bold, original and unparalleled design of this building, but also One Thousand Museum’s five-star lifestyle and extensive amenity package that will bring condo living to new heights in Miami.
