SAN FRANCISCO – (Business Wire) 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 two coveted awards — the prestigious “Deal of the Year” and the “Best Market-Rate Residential / San Francisco” — by the San Francisco Business Times as part of its 2009 Real Estate Deals of the Year Awards.

The Real Estate Deals of the Year Awards honor the boldest, toughest and most creative real estate deals done in the Bay Area. The annual awards are selected by the San Francisco Business Times editors and writers in conjunction with a panel of judges, including several of the Bay Area’s top real estate professionals.

“Being recognized with these two awards is a tremendous honor that reflects the unmatched quality of Millennium Tower’s residences and our commitment to San Francisco and the redevelopment of the Transbay neighborhood,” said Richard G. Baumert, managing director of Millennium Partners.

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.

Located in one of the city’s most exciting South of Market (SoMA) neighborhoods — bounded by Mission, Fremont and Beale streets — Millennium Tower is steps from the Financial District, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and SoMA’s burgeoning museum district and cultural corridors, and only a short distance from AT&T Park, Chinatown, Union Square and the theater district.
