A No Reserve Auction for a 1000 Museum Condo? You Bet!

May 15, 2020 May 15, 2020

With the global health crisis forcing businesses to get creative in the way they cater to their clientele, here’s a rare opportunity: A no reserve auction for a 4-bedroom condo at the coveted One Thousand Museum building, designed by the late Zaha Hadid. Solutions such as online auctions allowing you to bid on luxe properties from anywhere in the world could be a welcome adaptation - and are something that we’ll probably see more of, staying past the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, What’s on Sale?

ConcerigeAuctions.com has listed a half-floor, 4,876 sq. ft. condo residence in the landmark One Thousand Museum at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, in Downtown Miami. Unit 3601, the property features 4 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 1 half bathroom, plus sweeping eastward views of Biscayne Bay, the AmericanAirlines Arena and South Beach.

Perched on the 36th floor, the winning bidder will have the perfect spot to soak in unobstructed water views from within their wraparound glass-railed balcony. The artfully designed residence comes fully furnished with modern, custom Italian pieces and Italian porcelain floors. The open-plan condo maximizes use of space and views with a sleek, eat-in chef’s kitchen for a centerpiece. The Poliform kitchen comes decked with custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, integrated wall vanity cabinets, and a butler’s pantry with wine refrigerator. The plush master suite is a sanctuary of health and wellness with its two spa baths (a unique upgrade), standalone soaking tub overlooking the Bay, and enclosed steam showers. And of course, the condo comes integrated with Smart Home technology to control everything from your phone or tablet.

Auction Details – When and How?

Bidding for this ultra-luxury residence begins on May 27th, 2020. Bidders are required to pre-register for the online auction by putting in a $100,000 bidder deposit, which can also be done by your realtor. Concierge Auctions is also offering a 6% opening bid incentive, which is a credit equal to 6% of your opening bid if you are the winning bidder, good towards your purchase price. 

This is a no-reserve auction, which means the lavish condo, which is not in distress, will be sold to the highest bidder without the need to outbid a minimum amount. The auctioneering site features a 3D tour, catalog, and photo gallery of the urban chic residence with virtual showings available by appointment.

The waterfront condo was previously offered for $7.1 million.

One Thousand Museum’s Headline-grabbing Features

Designed by the late Pritzker-Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, the ultra-luxury building is also known as the “Scorpion Tower” for its unique exoskeleton that keeps pillars on the outside to offer unobstructed views and maximize internal space. The architectural feat comes perched on Downtown Miami’s spectacular bayfront, with the AmericanAirlines Arena (home to Miami Heat), Perez Art Museum, Frost Museum of Science, and many top-rated restaurants within a 2-mile radius. Recent buyers include David and Victoria Beckham, who purchased a full-floor, 10,000 square foot condo for reportedly $20 million in April. 

The landmark condo building also boasts of a private rooftop helipad. Other standout amenities include private beach club access in South Beach, private sky lounge, 60th floor double-height aquatic center with indoor pool, sundeck with poolside service, hospitality concierge, and more.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...
