Phyllis Winick has left Douglas Elliman and joined One Sotheby’s International Realty to work on Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum, a project that’s now registered in New York. 

At Elliman, Winick focused solely on Faena House for four years, and before that spent about 20 years as the director of sales for Fisher Island, she told The Real Deal. She joined One Sotheby’s on Nov. 15.

“I was approached by several developments, but Harvey Daniels gave me a call and I met with him and I cancelled all other appointments,” Winick said, calling One Thousand Museum “the crown jewel of her career.” Daniels is the director of sales for the 83-unit, 62-story luxury condo tower at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard. It’s more than 50 percent sold.

Now on its 26th floor, developers Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin, Kevin Venger, Gilberto Bomeny and the Regalia Group plan to deliver the building by September 2018. The development joins projects like 1 Hotel & Homes, Turnberry Ocean Club and the Bristol in West Palm Beach to be registered in New York. “We’ve been very limited in that market because we haven’t been registered in New York,” Daniels said.

Winick was part of the Faena House sales team for the past four years. The high-end Miami Beach condo tower had a sellout of more than $400 million when the last developer unit closed in May. Buyers there included a who’s who of the financial world.

At One Thousand Museum, prices range from about $5.8 million to $22 million and average more than $1,300 per square foot. Buyers are from all over the world, but especially from Brazil, Mexico and London. The developers closed on a $225 million construction loan on Friday.

The downtown Miami tower marks the first residential skyscraper design in the Western Hemisphere for Hadid, who died unexpectedly in March in Miami Beach. It will be completed by the end of 2018.

“The building is coming out of the ground and it’s looking so magnificent,” Winick said. “That’s the interest people have in the building. It’s because of her [Hadid].”
