UPDATED, July 1, 10:53 a.m.: One Thousand Museum Residences, the Zaha Hadid-designed skyscraper in downtown Miami, received its temporary certificate of occupancy and will begin closings as early as next week, the developers announced on Friday.

Developers Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Gregg Covin and Kevin Venger, along with the late Zaha Hadid, broke ground on the 62-story, 84-unit luxury condo tower at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard in December 2014.

The developers recently tapped Lotus Capital Partners to arrange a $331 million condo inventory loan for the building, according to an email obtained by The Real Deal. Offers were due in mid-June.

The building, Hadid’s first and final residential project in the western hemisphere, is known for its exoskeleton, which incorporates 4,800 precast panels made in Dubai and shipped to Miami. The complicated construction was featured on PBS’ “Impossible Builds” series.

Hadid was known for her sinuous, curvaceous designs that pushed the limits of building shapes. The Pritzker Prize-winning architect died in Miami Beach in 2016, after suffering a heart attack while being treated for bronchitis.

The tower is at least 60 percent sold, according to multiple reports. Harvey Daniels of One Sotheby’s International Realty is the sales director. Half-floor units start at $5.8 million and full-floor residences go up to more than $24 million. Artefacto, B&B Italia, Roche Bobois, Meridiani, Luxury Living Group and Morada Haute Furniture Design are completing the interiors of some units, according to a release.

Plaza Construction was the general contractor. Todd Michael Glaser is also a partner in the development.

One Thousand Museum will include a rooftop helipad, a wellness center with a gym and yoga facilities, relaxation pods and spa rooms, a sky lounge, a bank vault, a multimedia theater, an off-site beach club and 8 Juice Bar by Raw Republic.
