citizenM is set to break ground on its first California hotel this week. CitizenM San Francisco Union Square, a 12-story building located at 72 Ellis Street, will be the first of three locations in the Bay Area.
The 195-room, 130-foot-tall hotel will feature a rooftop public space, a large lobby area, outdoor terraces, and 1,200 sf of privately owned public open space. Amenities include a fitness center, meeting space, and 6,100 sf of varied retail uses on its ground floor and mezzanine.
An art wall entry vestibule will lead guests to a jump-elevator that will take them to the third floor check-in/check-out area. This “living room” space includes double-height ceilings, bookshelves, and a 24/7 canteenM bar. Guest rooms will include XL king size beds, wall-to-wall windows, HD TVs with a library of on-demand movies, and free WiFi. Each room will also feature an iPad that controls the blinds, the TV, the thermostat, and the lights.
citizenM San Francisco Union Square is designed by Amsterdam-based Concrete and Gensler. Webcor is the general contractor.
