New details were revealed about the proposed Downtown Miami condominium project by starchitect Zaha Hadid, the Miami Herald reported. A rendering revealed an undulating, voluptuous design for the project known as One Thousand Museum, set to rise at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard.
Developers Gregg Covin and Louis Birdman also disclosed pricing for the project — Hadid’s first in the western hemisphere — to the Herald. Condos will start at $4 million, and penthouses will ask at least $30 million, the paper said, which translated to around $900 a square foot.
Iraqi-born, Pritzker Prize-winning Hadid’s design will likely alter the Miami skyline dramatically, the Herald said. The 61-story tower will leave a distinct imprint on downtown Miami, if approved and built as her firm, Zaha Hadid Architects, has proposed it. [Miami Herald] –Guelda Voien
