Scheduled to complete construction in 2018, the One Thousand Museum is set to be a high rise futuristic condominium located in downtown Miami. Due to the deep foundation that was required for the colossal building, drilling had to be done to record depths of well over 170 feet. Upon completion, the 1000 Museum is expected to stand over 700 feet tall, making it the third tallest building after the Four Seasons Hotel Miami, and the Southeast Financial Center, which stand at 789 feet and 764 feet respectively.
The 1000 Museum is being constructed at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, right across from Museum Park, and is set to be created in a modernist architectural style with a concrete and glass facade. The skyscraper was being designed by architect Zaha Hadid, who is famous for designing the Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, as well as the Guangzhou Opera House in Guangzhou, China. Unfortunately, Hadid recently passed away in a Miami hospital after suffering from a heart attack on March 31, 2016. Thankfully, however, the 1000 Museum will continue construction.
The building offers a unique curving exoskeleton that gives the space a special, ultra-luxurious look. This type of architectural innovation requires fewer internal columns, which beautifies the internal space, and also necessitates the deep drilling to bolster the skyscraper’s architectural foundation. The property will also include amenities for investors and property renters, such as a rooftop helipad.
