St. Regis Museum Tower is a 42-story, 484 ft (148 m) skyscraper in the South of Market district of San Francisco, California, adjacent to Yerba Buena Gardens, Moscone Center, PacBell Building and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.[2] The tower is bounded by Mission Street and 3rd Street, and is operated by St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. The hotel[5] has five-star status.[6]

The tower was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and constructed by Webcor Builders[3] with Architectural Glass and Aluminum serving on the job at the Glazing Contractor.[7] Construction began on the highrise sometime around 2001. The project was completed in 2005 along with the retrofit of the historic nine-story Williams Building, which was incorporated into the tower.[8] The tower houses 102 luxury condominiums, 269 hotel rooms, a 4-story subterranean parking garage, and the Museum of the African Diaspora.[6] Its many prominent tenants (including Al Gore, David Drummond and Michael Ovitz) led Fortune magazine to call the building "home to one of the bigger groups of power players in the world."[9]

The St. Regis Museum Tower is one of several new 21st century highrise projects completed or under construction on Mission Street, including 555 Mission Street, The Paramount, 101 Second Street, JP MorganChase Building, and 301 Mission Street.
