Starchitect Zaha Hadid to design first skyscraper in Western Hemisphere



World-renowned architect Zaha Hadid will be designing her first skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, The Real Deal has learned.

Developer 1000 Biscayne Tower, which is managed by Gregg Covin and Louis Birdman, confirmed her commissioning today.

Hadid, who was born in Iraq but lives in London, recently designed a new parking garage in Miami Beach’s Collins Park neighborhood.

The planned downtown Miami tower is on the site currently occupied by a BP Station at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard across from the American Airlines Arena.

Some of Hadid’s notable projects include the BMW Central Building in Leipzig and the London Aquatics Centre for the Olympic Games.

No details as to height or floor count as of yet. Given the high profile architect and the location (see below), this one could be BIG.

Curbed Miami has learned via email from Gregg Covin, one of the developers of the project. The other developer is Louis Birdman. The building will fill a gap in the section of the "Biscayne Wall" of condo towers across from Museum Park. The site is currently occupied by a BP Station, which Curbed Miami had theorized months ago might soon be built upon. The tower's designs will be unveiled early next year and will be the "most iconic tower ever to be built in Miami."

I'm moving this to skyscrapers. The area is zoned for towers up to 710 ft. and the 'Biscayne Wall' of towers surrounding the site presages this one going at least as high if not higher than its neighbors, and the slender site promotes skyscraper heights.

FINALLY

I've been saying for YEARS that Miami needs to have a truly striking skyscraper. Elated that Miami will be getting a Zaha Hadid skyscraper.

Actually, I liked her design for 425 Park in NYC. It was the best of the proposed designs for that building

If it is anything like her innovative Central Bank of Iraq Tower as far as having a unique organic shape, then it should be a most impressive design.

This should shut up the folks who've been whining about Miami's staid designs.

1000 Biscayne Tower’s Likely Impact on the Neighborhood


http://www.miamicondoinvestments.com/

Quote:
Last month, it was announced that world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid has been appointed to design a luxury skyscraper in a neighborhood of Downtown Miami know as Park West. The residential high-rise, known as 1000 Biscayne Tower, will be developed by Gregg Covin, the developer behind Ten Museum Park, and Louis Birdman. The planned project will be erected in what is the current location of a BP gas station which neighbors Ten Museum Park at the intersection of Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 10 Street. Sales information is expected to be released during the first half of 2013.

There always seems to be a sense of excitement surrounding the announcement of a new development in Miami and the news of 1000 Biscayne Tower was no different. Not everyone, however, shares the same sentiment. Residents in the immediate area are not always thrilled about the inevitable noise, traffic congestion and their views potentially becoming obstructed due to the new construction. Taken yesterday evening, the picture above shows not only the site of the BP gas station but also its neighboring condo developments – 900 Biscayne Bay to the south and Ten Museum Park to the north. Due to their proximity, it should be clearly discernible that views in each high-rise from units closest to 1000 Biscayne Tower will be significantly affected.

It's pretty crowded in the neighborhood and views could be threatened. That poses a design challenge for Hadid but I have the feeling she is uniquely capable of twisting a tower away from tall neighbors.

^ Do the residents in the other towers not realize they are living in the heart of Miami and there are other highrises planned around them? If they want unobstructed views they shouldn't be living in the middle of the city!

If I was one of them with a great view, I would have hoped for 20 more years of convenient gas station next door!

I haven't been to Miami in 5 years. Looking at all of the white concrete buildings gives me some idea of how 432 Park will look.

Very interesting news! I've always admired Zaha. I haven't been in the downtown area in quite some time, thus I didn't know that that gas station was still around. Can't wait to see what the tower will look like.

While there are some ugly residential towers in Miami, I guarantee you none of them equate to 432's atrociousness.
