More details are emerging about the much-anticipated One Thousand Museum, a luxury high-rise development that is to be located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard. The most recent information includes a beautiful rendering that reveals the projects innovative architectural style. Curbed Miami, a website about local real estate news, has more.
We were surprised to receive this in our inbox from a little birdie. It’s a photo of a rendering of Zaha Hadid‘s new condo tower on Biscayne Boulevard, One Thousand Museum, and it’s only the second image of the tower to be publicly released. (It’s the middle building. The first image is here) Little birdie also says the reason for the outer shell, “exoskeleton”-like mega columns is to remove interior columns from within the apartments. It’s kinda like how a bug has its shell on the outside instead of bones on the inside. Yes, people, Zaha Hadid designed a giant bug on Biscayne Boulevard. Structurally speaking. If you’ve got any more peeks at it, do drop us a line please.
This published rendering (pictured above, 3rd from the right) follows a report in Miami Condo Investments, a leading analyst of the local real estate industry, that released more information about what this enigmatic project will entail:
Over the past two months, there has been a lot of buzz and excitement surrounding this upcoming development. The internationally acclaimed architect, Zaha Hadid, has a huge cult-like following all around the world, and for good reason. Her resume is impeccable with a laundry list of achievements and award-winning past projects. As a result, I expect condos at 1000 Museum to sell quickly. This development, however, will not be for the average buyer. My sources tell me that this development will target the rich who are looking to not only invest in a luxury residence in Miami but also buy into a work of art that will be known all around the world. It is expected to set a new bar for condo prices in Downtown Miami. I would not be surprised to see prices for condos at 1000 Museum hit $1,000 per square foot out of the gate.
By the way, I did a little research to see if I could substantiate the news which was provided to me yesterday. I discovered that Louis Birdman, one of 1000 Museum’s two developers, registered the domain 1000museum.com on January 9, 2013. If that’s not enough proof then I don’t know what is. Stay tuned because I will have a lot to report on this exciting project in the weeks ahead.
Even without further details, it’s clear that 1000 Museum will likely be one of the biggest and most luxurious additions to Downtown Miami Real Estate in the years to come. In the wake of a punishing recession, the city is experiencing a renaissance of innovative and ambitious developments such as 10 Museum Park.
