The Mills offers tenants a central location close to San Francisco’s main mass transit lines along with a 150 car valet garage. Our newest amenity, to be delivered in Q1 2022, is a contemporary health and secure bike complex featuring showers, lockers and a wellness room.

Retail in the Building is anchored by ILLY Coffee’s west coast flagship store, as well as other food options and personal services

Our commitment to your safety

We have been inspired by the industry’s enthusiasm as we return to live events and have been thrilled to safely host more than 4,000 executives this summer. As we continue to overcome and emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, we know the best way through the latest developments and to keep the industry thriving is by working together. As such, we are updating our event safety guidelines & protocols as follows:

  • Facial coverings will be required by all staff & attendees, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be made available at the door.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped and no tickets will be sold at the door.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Socially distanced seating will be available in the main event space.
  • Enhanced sanitization protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitizer provided to all attendees.

 

As local regulations and guidance evolve, the CRE industry continues to lead the way forward. We look forward to gathering safely to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business. We look forward to hosting you soon.
