TBT - A Look At The 1000 Museum Site

1000 Museum On Biscayne Boulevard

TBT (May 15, 2015) - 4 years ago the BP gas station was demolished and the site was cleared to start foundation work on One Thousand Museum.

The 62 story One Thousand Museum is still under construction today, but expected to be completed in the upcoming months.

Located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard across from Museum Park, Perez Art Museum of Miami and the under construction Frost Museum of Science, work is still progressing at the site.

In October 2014 they dismantled the BP gas station and demolished the pawn shop. In December 2014, groundbreaking by the Zaha Hadid designed building started.

Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum in Downtown Miami is quickly nearing completion since we last looked at the tower in November 2018 when both cranes were removed from the site.

At a height of 709 feet, the 62 story One Thousand Museum topped off in February 2018 and two years ago, May 2017, construction reached the 38th floor.

Construction is expected to be completed in the next couple of months.

Both cranes have been removed from the East and West side of the building of One Thousand Museum, along with all of the hoists. This gives the building the cleanest look at the exoskeleton surrounding the tower without any obstructions in the way.

Since we last looked in August, the cladding is almost installed around the parking levels at the base of the tower. The glass fiber reinforced concrete is nearly placed on most of the exoskeleton, which started to be installed in November 2017 when the tower reached the 57th floor.

The Zaha Hadid design tower topped off in February of this year at 709 feet after starting to go vertical in August 2015.

When we last looked at One Thousand Museum in February, the luxury condominium in Downtown Miami just topped off at 709 feet. 

A year ago in August 2017, One Thousand Museum just surpassed neighboring tower Ten Museum in height. Two years ago, the tower just reached the 15th floor.

Construction continues on the Zaha Hadid designed tower as the hoists have been removed from the South and West side the building showing a clearer look at the exoskeleton. In November 2017, installation began on the glass fiber reinforced concrete which gives the the exoskeleton a smooth finish on the curves of the building. The panels are almost installed all over the whole tower. Cladding also is being installed on the parking garage on the base of the building. The rooftop helipad, the first in Miami since The Centrust Tower in the 1980's, is starting to take shape.

Construction is expected to be completed be the end of the year.

One Thousand Museum has reached the 57th floor of construction and is only 5 floors away from topping off at 62 stories.

When we last looked at the project in August, One Thousand Museum had just passed Ten Museum in height.

Installation has now begun on the over 3,000 pieces of glass fiber reinforced concrete that was made in Dubai and shipped to Miami. The glass fiber reinforced concrete will give the exoskeleton a smooth finish on the curves of the building.

When we previously looked at One Thousand Museum in May, the building was on the 38th floor of construction. One Thousand Museum has reached over 539 feet in height and is now above the neighboring building Ten Museum at 51 stories.

In the next couple of months, One Thousand Museum should be above 900 Biscayne in height and on its way to its final height of 706 feet by the end of the year.

Two years ago, the site was getting ready for its concrete pour.

When we last looked at the under construction One Thousand Museum on 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, the building was on the 31st floor. Construction has now reached the 38th floor of the 62 story tower.

A year ago, the base of the building was starting to take shape on the Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid designed tower.

One of the unique features of One Thousand Museum is the exoskeleton, which supports the building. The exoskeleton is made of over 3,000 pieces of glass fiber reinforced concrete, which is made in Dubai and shipped to Miami every week. The panels are clamped around the steel rebar and poured with concrete to the give the exoskeleton a continuous flow.
