One Thousand Museum Bulldozes Through 50 Percent Under Contract Mark

February 2, 2015 by Lucas Lechuga

One Thousand Museum dinner event

When it comes to sales as of late, One Thousand Museum has been kicking ass and taking names. While attending a VIP dinner event held at the One Thousand Museum sales gallery last Thursday, I learned that over 50 percent of the units at One Thousand Museum are now under contract. And I’m talking hard contracts here, each with deposits received and past their 15-day rescission period. From what I heard that night, sales had hovered around the 30 percent mark for a while but then, in the weeks following Art Basel and the developer’s brilliantly timed groundbreaking ceremony, it has been full speed ahead with no signs of slowing. Currently, the entry point to get in at One Thousand Museum is slightly over $5.5M, or $1,200 per square foot – although that may have changed since Thursday given that I learned yesterday that two new contracts were signed on Saturday. No word yet, however, as to which two units those might be. 50 percent under contract at this point is big news in and of itself, but what really blew my mind last Thursday night is that the developer already has six of the total eight full-floor residences under contract. The two remaining full-floor residences are priced slightly under $17.5M and $20M. With each having just under 10,000 interior square feet, those work out to be a little more than $1,750 and $2,000 per square foot respectively. That’s right folks, take a moment to process that small yet impactful piece of information and realize its significance, not only just for One Thousand Museum, but also for the Downtown Miami real estate market as a whole.

Since the beginning, I’ve been a huge believer in One Thousand Museum. It is great to see that buyers are finally starting to see One Thousand Museum for what it will one day become – a trophy property that will be revered by people from all over the world. Early last year, Wealth-X – “the world’s leading ultra high net worth (UHNW) intelligence and  prospecting firm” – compiled and published their top ten list of Billionaire Skyscraper Homes. Coming in at the number nine spot was One Thousand Museum. As you will see below, One Thousand Museum finds itself in very good company, not surprising given the fact that the tower was designed by one of the most prolific architects ever – Zaha Hadid.

  1. One Hyde Park (London) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$9,906
  2. 432 Park Avenue (New York City) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$6,742
  3. One57 (New York City) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$6,000
  4. South Bank Tower (London) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$3,300
  5. Tour Odéon (Monaco) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$8,900
  6. Opus Hong Kong (Hong Kong) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$10,740
  7. 56 Leonard (New York City) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$6,000
  8. Clermont Residences (Singapore) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$2,360
  9. One Thousand Museum (Miami) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$1,100
  10. One Madison (New York City) – Average Price Per Square Foot: US$5,000

For those who are unfamiliar with One Thousand Museum, be sure to watch the promo video below to see for yourself just how spectacular the luxury tower will look once completed. It will forever change the Miami skyline for the better and help catapult the city’s real estate market to even greater prominence around the world.

Below are two recently released renderings for One Thousand Museum along with a few shots of the development’s hologram box and a photo taken of the Luxe Living Realty agents who attended last Thursday’s exclusive dinner event. That night, Luxe Living Realty agents (myself included) were formally named sales ambassadors for the project, which, among other things, provides us with 24/7 access to the One Thousand Museum sales gallery. Yes, that means that if you have $49M burning a hole in your pocket, and feel compelled to schedule a 3am appointment to visit the sales center and write-up a contract for the full-floor, duplex penthouse, I would be able to accommodate you. I realize that the jet lag from those long, transoceanic flights can be horrible.
