New images of the highly-anticipated, Zaha Hadid preconstruction residential skyscraper, One Thousand Museum, have been unveiled, revealing the proposed futuristic design featuring a concrete “exoskeleton” exterior structure.
The quirky design — likened to a spider, bug, and alien spaceship by some local bloggers — is intended to add more character and appeal to the city’s skyline. Hadid’s first skyscraper in the western hemisphere, the 61-story luxury tower will feature ample, customizable floor plans that offer beautiful city and water views, and will be situated in downtown Miami on Biscayne 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.
The 83 residences are expected to range in price between $4 million and $12 million for the half-floor and full-floor units, rising to between $30 million and $50 million for the penthouses. They will be offered fully furnished, including flooring, custom closets, and high-end lighting. The highlight of the planned project is the helicopter landing pad located at the top of the building making it the first residential tower with this feature. Other extraordinary aspects of the project include a sun deck with a billiards room, a screening room and a cardio room, oversized pools, spa, hot tubs, and cold plunge pools. Additionally, it will consist of a sauna, a steam room, and cabanas. Huge units, strong security, ample parking, and a grand lobby is just barely scratching the surface of the long list of features planned for the One Thousand Museum.
Currently in the process of being financed by developers Louis Birdman and Gregg Covin, the $300 million condo is slated for completion in 2016, though the project must be completely financed before construction can begin.
