Real estate revolutionary and president of Black Lion, Robert Rivani, just acquired the coveted 6,500-square-foot ground floor restaurant space at the prestigious One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid for $6.4 million. This restaurant space is the only one in the 62-story luxury residential high-rise, developed by Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Gregg Covin, and Kevin Venger, and home to high-profile owners including David & Victoria Beckham, David Grutman, Marc Anthony, billionaire Anthony Hsieh, and actress Sela Ann Ward. Rivani’s off-market purchase marks Black Lion’s first deal in the Downtown area. This beacon completes the company’s portfolio of trophy properties from Wynwood and Brickell down to Miami Beach.

“One Thousand Museum is one of the most iconic and architecturally significant buildings in all of Miami. I knew we had to have a piece of it,” said Robert Rivani, President of Black Lion. “Our objective at Black Lion is to curate transformative lifestyle experiences, and we plan to do just that with this property–bringing in a world-class restaurant or hospitality group to operate out of the space will be a key investment for our Miami expansion.”
