One Thousand Museum Exoskeleton Near Pinnacle At 706 Feet (Updated)

Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum is nearing top off.

According to ODP Architects, the final piece of formwork panel that makes up the building’s exoskeleton was being installed yesterday at 706 feet above sea level – near the tallest height above ground approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

In 2014, the FAA granted approval for the building to top off at a height of 706 feet above ground, or 709 feet above sea level.

At the very top of the building, a helipad is proposed (but not yet approved).

Also at the top, an Aquatic Center and Sky Lounge designed by Hadid is being built.

Construction got underway more than three years ago, in December 2014 (exactly 1,137 days).
