After 11 years in the making, the company celebrated the opening of San Francisco's first mixed-use development in 2001. Led by a development team that included Millennium Partners, the project includes the five-star Four Seasons Hotel, the sold-out Four Seasons Residences, the 100,000-square-foot Sports Club/LA, and retail space that fronts both Market Street and Yerba Buena Lane.
Other Millennium Partners San Francisco developments include the innovative entertainment center Metreon (in which Millennium recently sold its interest) and Yerba Buena Lane. Millennium's commitment to San Francisco is further evidenced by the company's support of the city's cultural attractions. Millennium Partners was instrumental in the Contemporary Jewish Museum's ongoing efforts to build a new facility beginning 10 years ago, when the company helped plan the space for the museum. In July 2006 Millennium Partners gifted the museum 22,700 square feet of land next to Four Seasons Hotel. The company is currently building Millennium Tower, the tallest luxury residential tower in San Francisco.
