Update 4/6/2015: Workers broke Miami-Dade’s drilling records yet again after setting the deepest augercast pile in county history during construction of One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects.

The piles were poured 177 feet deep, breaking the record construction workers set only a month earlier by 17 feet.

HJ Foundations originally drilled 160 feet down and installed the building’s foundational pillars, called augercast piles. The installation marks the deepest augercast pile in the county’s history. The firm was under contract by Plaza Construction, the project’s general contractor, and was supervised by Langan Engineering, the project’s geotechnical engineer.

The piles were set that deep because of the force expected to come from One Thousand Museum’s 62 stories, according to a release.

The 83-unit condo tower at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard will be architect Zaha Hadid’s first design in the Western Hemisphere. Prices will start at $5.5 million per unit, with sizes ranging from 4,600 square feet to more than 10,000 square feet.

Developers Louis Birdman and Gregg Covin partnered with the Regalia Group to develop the project. Harvey Daniels of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty is the building’s exclusive listing agent. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
