Earlier this month Millennium Hotels and Resorts hosted a groundbreaking ceremony in Sunnyvale, California for its M Social project. Set to open in 2021, the development will be the first of its kind in North America and the fourth worldwide, following locations in Singapore, Auckland and Suzhou.
The property, conceptualized by Singaporean real estate mogul and chairman of Millennium and Hawthorne Kwek Leng Beng, will consist of 250 residences, a 263-room hotel and over 24,000 square feet in function space. The property is designed to embrace technology and facilitate social interactions. As part of that technological focus, the whole property will provide 5G wireless capabilities.
M Social will also mark the first steel frame modular hotel to be built in California. This method of construction results in more efficient build times, less waste while building and a lower impact on the surrounding environment and neighborhoods. The property’s design will channel California style.
Millennium Hotels and Resorts is the brand umbrella of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels. The company’s portfolio consists of over 130 hotels in locations throughout Asia, Australasia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. It contains four collections, Leng’s, M, Millennium and Copthorne, as well as ten brands, including Leng’s, M Hotel, M Social, Studio M, Grand Millennium, Millennium, Grand Copthorne, Copthorne, Kingsgate and MyMillennium.
