Millennium Tower, the 60-story, ultra-luxury residential tower located at 301 Mission Street in San Francisco developed by Millennium Partners, has been honored with the prestigious “Building San Francisco” Award by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce as part of its 19th Annual 2010 Excellence in Business Awards (“Ebbies”).
The Building San Francisco Award, presented by Lennar & Degenkolb Engineering, was awarded to Millennium Tower for enhancing the city’s economic development, housing, transportation and quality of life.
“We are honored to be recognized by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce with this prestigious award,” said Richard G. Baumert, managing director of Millennium Partners. “We have a longstanding commitment to San Francisco and are proud to be recognized by fellow business leaders for our accomplishments and the positive impact Millennium Tower has had both on the city and the burgeoning Transbay neighborhood.”
The Ebbies were created in 1991 by the Chamber of Commerce to honor San Francisco businesses for innovation, vision, and contributions to the local community. This year, six companies were recognized in categories that included Emerging Growth, Small Business and Innovation through Technology.
Millennium Tower, the first Millennium Partners project in San Francisco to bear the company’s name, serves as a showcase for extraordinary standards of design, services and amenities. Visually striking for its graceful elegance of design and distinctive blue glass curtain wall, Millennium Tower is the tallest luxury residential property in San Francisco, the tallest residential building west of the Mississippi, and the fourth-tallest structure on the San Francisco skyline.
Designed by acclaimed architect Glenn Rescalvo of Handel Architects, the 645-foot, 60-story luxury residential tower and an adjacent 11-story, mid-rise building comprise a total of 419 residences, including 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 2-bedroom + library, 3-bedroom and penthouse residences, ranging in size from approximately 750 square feet to 6,000 square feet. Each of the three residential components -- Residences at Millennium Tower, City Residences at Millennium Tower and Grand Residences at Millennium Tower -- has its own separate and distinct entry and lobby as well as its own dedicated staff.
Every detail of the residence interiors has been designed with meticulous attention to detail. From the living spaces and kitchens to the bedrooms and baths, only furnishings and finishes of the highest quality have been be used. Resident services include a private concierge and exclusive access to the 20,000-square-foot Club Level, featuring an owners’ lounge, tasting room and cellar, private dining room (serviced by chef Michael Mina’s RN74), screening room, children’s playroom, outdoor terrace, and a 5,500-square-foot fitness center operated by Sports Club-LA, complete with Pilates and yoga studios, massage therapy, locker rooms, Jacuzzi and steam rooms as well as a 75-foot, indoor, competition-length lap pool set beneath a soaring skylight.
