ONE SIR is recognized as the true voice of luxury through de la Vega’s achievements of maximizing the prestigious reputation of the historic Sotheby’s Auction House, challenging the status quo within the Sotheby’s International Realty network with award-winning marketing methods, publishing of ONE LIFE magazine and her induction into the network’s elite Braintrust Consortium.

Located at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard on a coveted property overlooking Museum Park and Biscayne Bay, One Thousand Museum will be Zaha Hadid’s first residential skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. Rising to more than 60 stories, it will be comprised solely of half- and full-floor residences. Museum Park (formerly known as Bicentennial Park), the home of the Peréz Art Museum Miami and the Frost Museum of Science, is rapidly becoming one of Miami’s most prestigious cultural destinations.
