David Beckham has been plotting for the better part of a decade to bring a Major League Soccer team back to the city of Miami. There have been a few hiccups along the way. Beckham had to settle for basing the team in neighboring Ft. Lauderdale and the MLS season was halted after the team played their first two games.
As it turns out, however, the Beckhams have opted for the mainland over the beach—and for an apartment over a mansion. Though, obviously, it’s not just any apartment. They’ve just closed on a full-floor penthouse in the futuristic One Thousand Museum building. Sometimes dubbed “the scorpion building,” its exo-skeleton construction certainly makes it stand out.
The 62-story tower is one of the final projects designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid before her death in 2016. It’s also one of only two residential buildings designed by the architect in North American.
The Beckhams’ new home is one of 10 full-floor units in the building and will net them a total of 11,046 square feet of space. Resident privacy is a high priority at the building, and the Beckhams will enjoy private, high-speed elevators that open directly to residences. Should they want to mingle with the rest of the building’s residents, they can enjoy a two-floor spa and wellness area that includes a gym, steam room, and sauna.
There’s also a theater available for private screenings. This being Miami, there are also multiple pools. Other amenities include private safety deposit boxes inside a vault, custom scenting throughout the building, and, pending approval, a private rooftop helipad. Read here
