One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid to be Formally Announced Next Week

1000 Museum by Zaha Hadid

The wait is almost over.  The new Zaha Hadid development to be located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard will be formally announced next week.  It had been expected to be called 1000 Biscayne Tower but that is no longer the case.  The developers have instead decided to call the luxury residential high-rise One Thousand Museum.

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 there to be a lot of interest for condos at 1000 Museum.  This development, however, will not be for the average buyer.  My sources tell me that this development will target the uber-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 Mueum 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 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.

Hi, Lucas,
Who ever took this photo of Jaha Hadid did an excellent job. It reminds me of Caravaggio the famed Italian Baroque painter who is known for a dramatic use of lighting and portraying the sitter’s emotional state. Anyway, I have seen Hadid’s work. It remains to be seen how she would translate her unique architectural vision into a Miami residential building. Thank you for this post.


Thanks for this post.
I think we have a true batch of professionals here to create something very exciting like BIG in Coconut Grove by Terra Group. The Developers of 1040 and 1000 certainly know the block.
This is world class design- better than our local-cave-to-developers-stuff. (I think Ten Museum is amazing!)
It is a shame these towers exist above freeways, though. After 9 years, there is still no pedestrian traffic and few services.

We at Ten Museum Park, the neighbors of this sure to be amazing building, are excited. 1000 Museum is being developed by Gregg Covin, who was our developer at Ten Museum Park. There is an interesting article regarding the development at Ten Museum Park in the November 12th edition of the Daily Business on November 6, 2012.
