One Thousand Museum, Among World’s Most Challenging Architectural Projects, Now Complete After 55 Months

More than four and a half years after groundbreaking, Downtown Miami’s One Thousand Museum has reached completion.

A temporary certificate of occupancy has been issued and closings will commence immediately, developers Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Gregg Covin and Kevin Venger announced.

The 62-story tower features an exoskeleton design that was recognized as one of the world’s most challenging architectural projects in a documentary.

A private roof-top helipad is on the roof of the tower, and is among the highest helipads anywhere in the U.S.

One Thousand Museum is also the first residential project to partner with Forbes Travel Guide to set service standards for the building and train all staff in accordance with their Five-Star ratings system.

Too slow !!! Very underwhelming.

I wish Flatiron Brickell had this parking podium facade, the actual one looks horrible.

Only the Okan and Aston Martin towers could top this building.

Yes but Hadid aside, the aforementioned towers are already world class architecture when everything else is Arquitectonica and Kobi Krap.

Now leave that water slip alone so that people that buy into this building and Paramount can park their bots there. Let’s spend that money for something more useful.

What, are you kidding?.. they have to fill in that slip to make more unused park space!

The filling of that water slip is the dumbest thing they proposed so far. What’s even the purpose of that?!? Why spend the money there when it could be used elsewhere useful. Plus you are right, that slip is a great amenity for the surround buildings for people with boats and it adds to the beauty of that area. I just hope they don’t wanna fill it to then build on it…

If you walk it it will make more sense…
#1. The slip isnt beautiful. It is a collector for trash and a very stinky and stagnant cocktail of decaying seaweed and fish.
#2. If you were walking along the bayfront from Bayside to Museum Park, then this slip is a 100yr detour to the West, then a 25yrd right, then you’d take another right to back to the bayfront almost where you started. People dont do it.
#3. The +/- 225 yrds of “slip front” is expensive to maintain. Fill it you only have to maintain 25 yrds (almost 10% of the cost).
#4. No reason the boats can’t dock on the bay.

It is definitely NOT the DUMBEST proposal I’ve seen.

They should build a huge parking garage after they fill in the slip. 😉

Fill in the slip and put a Chase Bank, CVS and nail salon there. Much needed. Oh and a Ceviche restaurant… we really need that

Miami should be proud of 1000 Museum. It is a piece of art. I have traveled from NC several times to photograph it. I consider Miami to be the most beautiful city in the USA. Be proud!

We should all be so proud of this building and a few others like Okan, Aston Martin and even Paramount.

Of course Miami needs to talk about flash rather than discussing the building’s provocative architectural merit and design quality. Niceee article that says nothing. Beautiful building regardless….
