Award-Winning Architect Zaha Hadid to Design Miami Skyscraper
The Pritzker Prize winner's first residential skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere will overlook the Biscayne Bay.
Zaha Hadid is one of the world's most celebrated architects, and she's lending her talents to add another jewel to Miami's skyline. Named one of "The World's 100 Most Powerful Women" by Forbes, Hadid is turning heads in Miami with her new project.
Real estate developers Louis Birdman and Gregg Covin made it big when they wooed the Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning architect to Florida. Located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard on a coveted strip of land overlooking the Biscayne Bay, the building will be Zaha Hadid's first residential skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere.
The property also overlooks Museum Park (formally known as Bicentennial Park), the future home of the Peréz Art Museum Miami and the Frost Museum of Science. Dubbed "One Thousand Museum," the new development will rise to more than 60 stories and is sure to have killer views from every angle.
"With One Thousand Museum, the Miami skyline will rival that of New York City when it comes to architectural interest, world attention and pricing," said Mayi De La Vega, founder and CEO of ONE Sotheby's International Realty in South Florida. "We simply haven't yet had a residential tower designed by an architect of Hadid's caliber in Miami, nor have we seen the level of amenities that this extraordinary building will provide."
