PLAZA STAYS ON SCHEDULE WITH 1000 MUSEUM TOWER AFTER HURRICANE IRMA. BY ALAN DORICH

T

he construction market in southern
Florida is booming, which makes
it a good time to develop projects
in Miami. "It's a top-five city," Kevin
Venger says. "There's a [wide range] of reasons that people want to live here."
Venger, who has developed projects in
the city for the last 20 years, is at work on
1000 Museum Tower, a 62-story mixed-use
building. "It's primarily a condo project, but
it does have a retail component down on
the ground floor," he says.
When finished, 1000 Museum Tower
will have 83 living units, including four
two-story half-floor town-house residences, half-floor residences between levels
15 and 49, and amazing full floor residences from 50 through 59. Its amenities
will include a double height main lobby,
air-conditioned valet lounge and covered
motor court on its ground floor, a pool deck
with various pools and cabanas, fitness
center and full spa on the eighth and ninth
floors, and entertainment room, theatre,
private dining room and an aquatic center
on its 60th and 61st floors.
But one of the more distinctive features
of 1000 Museum Tower is a helicopter pad
at the top of the building. Today, "We're the
only residential building with a helicopter
pad approved by the FAA," Venger declares.
The building also will have a safety
deposit vault where every tenant has his
or her own deposit box. "You've got to have
your thumbprint to open the door and the
safety deposit box itself," he notes.

Building the Skeleton
Plaza Construction started building 1000
Museum Tower in 2015 and will finish end
of 2018. Venger had not previously worked
with the builder, but it had the right experience to work in Miami.
"They had built a neighboring property,
the Marquis, which is a project a block down
from where we are building," he says, explaining that this gave the contractor a real

Plaza also brought the willingness to take
on one of the project's largest challenges: an
exoskeleton made from glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) forms. "They wanted
it to be a true structure exoskeleton that
