About Ghirardelli Square:
Since being registered as a historic landmark in 1982, Ghirardelli Square has become one of San Francisco's most treasured icons, and has been home to a variety of dining and retail merchants since it opened in 1964. In its final phase of a major revitalization since JMA Ventures purchased the property in 2004, Ghirardelli Square is transforming the historic destination into an urban enclave of specialty boutiques, fine dining restaurants, artisanal food markets, premium wine tasting shops, a luxury spa and private residence club homes at Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square.
