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).

Dress her up now so we can marvel at her beauty. Glad she is almost done.

Jesus Christ. I’m not really afraid of heights but you have to have balls of steel to do that…

LOL, I was thinking the same thing!

The fifth, the tallest, and the most beautiful sister building on Biscayne Blvd. This was the last design of Zaha and I am sure she would have been proud!

Beautiful and elegant
Miami needs 10 more towers with ecclectic designs like this

Okayyyy… for you, Arquitectonica will get right on it!

It should be a requirement to build here: Cutting-edge iconic only or need not apply.

I need to develop some contacts to get an invite to swim on the infinity edge pool at 700 ft.

The banging and scraping that the neighboring buildings hear is not construction…it’s the sound of the construction worker’s balls hitting the metal when they walk around that high.

I don’t think its as nice as ya’ll making her out to be.

I’m not intentionally being a hater — but I wonder if the reaction would be so positive if it wasn’t attached to Zaha Hadid. Don’t get me wrong I like the building, but personally think the windows are too dark/brown.

The website rendering looks like the concrete exoskeleton will be painted white. That and lights from inside at night should lighten up the look.

The deep overhang on the balcony will make the interiors very dark and restrict the full sight line. Those balconies are oppressive.

So apparently you haven’t seen any of the interiors or stood on one of the blaconies lol…

The interiors have been modeled virtually dork, so yes I have actually seen a view from the interior and yes as I suspected the the shape of the overhang restricts the view. she has concrete in front of glass, furthermore all those nooks and crannies are going to collect nothing but dirt and schmutz. so take that putz!

So you admit you’re speculating and haven’t stood on one right?

The darker colored glass gives more prominence and focus to the exoskeleton structure.

Agree – the windows are dark and, per the the views from the deck views are obscured and vary down to a very small size per the floor plans on the 1000 website.

How did they get the shot looking down? Aren’t drones not supposed to fly over 400 ft?

This is Miami. Anything is possible.

It’s beautiful for an upside down squid looking structure.

Looking at the last pic comparing the marquis height to 1000 M(topped out 706 ft), I really don’t understand how marquis is 679 ft. In a picture that close to the towers, 30 ft is a noticeable difference but it seems like the marquis is actually ~700 ft.

They are both 709 AMSL look it up

Agreed.

Very much like your grasp of the English language. Overrated is one word, pumpkin. BTW, please feel free to wow us all with your far superior designs.

LOL, well said wolfgang

Overrated was spelled phonetically by the way like the chant at the sporting event. Zaha is overrated and this building looks stupid, like some cheesy science fiction movie set from the 80’s

“looks stupid, ugly, boring, cheap, uninspiring, etc, etc, etc……

Miami is very blessed to have people like yourself who can use an enormous vocabulary in such an astute way when critiquing Miami’s new structures.

“stupid…” whew, brilliant!!!

Who paid you to post that Bernardo Fort-Brescia or Jorge Perez????

You understand that the escoskeleton is the only thing holding the building right?
