Progressively Designed Business and Retail Community Expected to Attract Major Biotech or Other Visionary Firms as Tenants
SAN FRANCISCO (June 26, 2012) – Sean Jeffries, vice president of Millennium Partners, one of the country’s leading commercial and residential developers with an unparalleled portfolio of mixed-use properties in some of the nation’s most dynamic urban locations, has announced that the company has received approval to develop Burlingame Point, a defining commercial project for the City of Burlingame. Following a thorough approval process, Burlingame council members have voted in support of the project following the planning commission’s comprehensive review. Millennium Partners, represented by the worldwide commercial real estate firm CBRE, expects to market the 780,000 square feet of Class A office space starting this summer.
“Millennium Partners has envisioned Burlingame Point with the future of the city in mind,” said Jerry Deal, Burlingame City Mayor. “It’s an exciting commercial project that will enliven the area by offering world-class office and retail space with a strong focus on sustainability, all in a tranquil waterfront setting that encourages live-work balance. Burlingame Point will be like no other office park on the Peninsula, and I appreciate all that the planning commission, community development staff and city council members did to support this development in our city.”
Millennium Partners is developing Burlingame Point to be an artful conjoining of state-of-the-art building technologies, an extraordinary close-to-nature bay-front setting, and the distinct, progressive culture of the Peninsula. The office development will rise above the scenic shoreline of the San Francisco Bay in a world-class setting that is peaceful yet exciting, offering exceptional views and conveniently located midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Burlingame Point is easily accessible from Highway 101 and less than two miles from San Francisco International Airport.
“We are committed to investing in and building communities,” said Jeffries. “Millennium Partners envisions Burlingame Point as the center of open space on the waterfront that will enhance and support the surrounding commercial area. Especially exciting are the design components and amenities that will set this corporate campus apart from other office complexes in the region.
DES Architects + Engineers is the design team for Burlingame Point, which has been designed in accordance with the requirements for LEED Gold Certification. The development will maximize sustainability efficiencies and encourage live-work balance by combining bright and spacious workspace, sought-after green space, restaurant and retail options for area residents, sophisticated lifestyle amenities, video conferencing center, bicycle loaner program and bike storage, direct access to the Bay Trail, and proximity to the 670-acre Coyote Point Park.
With the introduction of Burlingame Point, Millennium Partners is setting a new standard for tomorrow’s corporate locations, rivaling the most prominent business addresses on the Peninsula by embracing the environment, people, and culture.
Burlingame Point is scheduled to begin construction in early 2013 and to open in late 2014. More information about Burlingame Point is available at www.millenniumptrs.com.
