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.
As the windows continue to be installed, the exoskeleton of Zaha Hadid's design is taking shape, which allows to the building to have floor to ceiling windows and not have any interior columns. With 83 units, One Thousand Museum will also have a rooftop helipad. The first since Miami Tower in the 80's.
