One Thousand Museum is a high-rise residential condominium under construction in Miami, Florida, United States. The deep foundation required drilling to record depths of over 170 feet (52 m).[2] The 62-story building is expected to rise over 700 feet (210 m) when completed in 2018, making it one of the tallest buildings in Miami.[3] The depths of two auger-cast piles broke a record for Miami-Dade County that had recently been set by the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach.[2] The building, which is located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, across from Museum Park, was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid.[3] After the death of Hadid, the Project Director of Zaha Hadid Architects, Chris Lepine, completed the project.[4] The exotic design of the building features a curving exoskeleton partially obscuring the balconies[5] that also serves structural purposes, allowing the interior space to have fewer columns.[6] To meet the architect's designs of smoothness and finish, the columns were finished with glass fiber reinforced concrete permanent form works. The effect of the design and height on wind loading is part of the reason the foundation had to be exceptionally deep.[7] The building is considered ultra-luxury, containing about 83 large units priced at about double the cost per square foot of nearby condominium towers, with amenities possibly including a rooftop helipad.[8]

In early 2018, before the building was finished, an episode of PBS Impossible Builds featured the building, which they referred to as the "scorpion tower".[9]
