SAN FRANCISCO--()--Millennium Tower, the 60-story, ultra-luxury residential tower located at 301 Mission Street in San Francisco, developed by Millennium Partners, has been named “One of the Top 10 Residential Buildings in the World” by Worth, which deemed it one of the “most desirable” and "coolest places to live.”
“scoured the world’s metropolises in search of their most desirable residential buildings.”
Profiled in the August/September 2012 issue of Worth, which addresses the relevant financial, legal and lifestyle issues unique to high net worth individuals, Millennium Tower was selected after the magazine “scoured the world’s metropolises in search of their most desirable residential buildings.” In the Elite List story, Worth notes that “even in a tough economy, great architects don’t abandon creative daring, visionary developers still build bold designs and wealthy buyers continue to pay high prices for distinctive homes.”
“We are extremely proud to be named one of the top ten residential buildings in the world by Worth magazine,” said Richard G. Baumert, partner at Millennium Partners. “This incredible honor is a testament to the unparalleled architecture and design, luxury services and amenities, and unique lifestyle and experiences afforded to residents of Millennium Tower.”
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 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.
Beyond its spectacular design, services, and amenities, Millennium Tower exclusively offers residents access to La Vie® (www.laviesf.com), a monthly events program. Designed to further enhance the Millennium Tower lifestyle and showcase the amenities available to residents through the building’s Club Level, La Vie offers residents a robust calendar of intriguing offerings, from film screenings in the Club Level’s private screening room to engaging fireside chats with notables such as Millennium Tower resident and San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana, celebrity chef Michael Mina, venture capitalist Tom Perkins, and Mayor Willie Brown, among others. Other programming includes on- and off-site winemaker events, musical performances, and more. Since its inception in 2010, La Vie has been critical to building a sense of community and a distinct identity for the luxury tower, allowing residents to share collective experiences and providing a compelling showcase of Millennium Tower’s distinctive lifestyle.
For those seeking an East Coast residence that embodies the luxury lifestyle afforded by Millennium Tower, Millennium Partners recently unveiled a new residential property in Boston, Millennium Place. The 15-story building comprises 256 residences and will offer the same signature amenities and La Vie programming as the San Francisco property. Millennium Place’s sales center will open in fall 2012, with initial occupancy slated for fall 2013.
