The limited edition concept is also applicable to housing. Zaha Hadid’s The One Thousand Museum Tower has had a lot of coverage on the media for its futuristic architecture but now our attention goes to the interior design.
Louis Birdman and Gregg Covin are the Miami based developers behind the Miami’s Biscayne Boulevard’s project. They decided to try something unconventional: a hyper luxury condo with, let’s call it,“limited edition” residences, meaning massive luxury apartments with enough square footage to rival big imposing single mansions.
The One Thousand Museum Tower plan consists of 83 units spanning 60 stories. Though the building is enormous, the number of units is not that big in proportion.
The smallest luxury apartments have an area of 4,600 square feet and start at around $4.9 million. These “humble” pads take half a floor while the full-floor mega apartments will cost their owners $15 million and a duplex penthouse spreading across 11,000 square feet will be worth $30 million.
Each one of these hyper luxury apartments will have private balconies, 10- to 20-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows as well as access to a rooftop helicopter pad, a spa, indoor and outdoor pools, valet parking and “security” concierges.
Apparently “limited edition” residences are a trend growing in the marketplace of downtown Miami.
Boutique hotelier Ian Schrager is also developping The Residences at the Miami Beach Edition, a luxury hotel-condo with 26 “limited-edition” condos on the top floors of the existing hotel and in a new neighboring tower.
Set to be unveiled next year, the project is designed by architect John Pawson and will have “outdoor rooms” with private pools, dining areas and pergolas.
