Icons of Design in San Francisco

Rising high above the SOMA streets on the 52nd floor, the Icons of Design designer showcase transformed the interiors of four of the luxurious Grand Residences in Millennium Tower. Twenty-five of the Bay Area's most prestigious designers were each given a room in one of the units with the task of creating a space that could hold its own against the breathtaking views.

While we were lucky enough to get a private tour of the showcase, it is open to the public on weekends with proceeds benefiting local charities.

Public tours began on October 24 and will continue for five consecutive weekends through November 22. Tours run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday with the last tour beginning at 6 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday with the last tour beginning at 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in the Grand Residences Lobby at Millennium Tower (301 Mission Street at Fremont Street) with proceeds benefitting a different Bay Area charity each weekend. Complimentary valet parking is provided. For more information, check out the Icons of Design website.

The schedule and respective beneficiary of each future weekend is as follows:
• November 6 - 7 – Berkeley Repertory Theater
• November 13 - 14 – Museum of Performance and Design San Francisco
• November 21 - 22 – American Heart Association, Greater Bay Area Chapter
