The developers of Zaha Hadid’s voluptuous One Thousand Museum condo tower won unanimous approval from Miami’s urban design review board, according to a release.

The tower, to be the Pritzker prize-winning architect’s first skyscraper in the Western hemisphere, will stand at 706 feet at 1000 Biscayne Blvd., directly across from the future Museum Park. The much-anticipated new cultural area will feature developer Jorge Pérez’s Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.

Contracting the London-based architect for the tower symbolizes Miami’s newfound reputation as a world city, according to Mayi de la Vega, the founder and chief executive of One Sotheby’s International Realty in South Florida, the building’s marketing and sales agent.

“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,” de la Vega said in the release. — Emily Schmall
