World-renowned architect Zaha Hadid will be designing her first skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, The Real Deal has learned.

Developer 1000 Biscayne Tower, which is managed by Gregg Covin and Louis Birdman, confirmed her commissioning today.

Hadid, who was born in Iraq but lives in London, recently designed a new parking garage in Miami Beach’s Collins Park neighborhood.

The planned downtown Miami tower is on the site currently occupied by a BP Station at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard across from the American Airlines Arena.

Some of Hadid’s notable projects include the BMW Central Building in Leipzig and the London Aquatics Centre for the Olympic Games.
