Millennium Hotels and Resorts, a division of hospitality management and real estate group Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, broke ground on the site of the brand’s newest hospitality and residential project in Sunnyvale, Calif.
Dubbed M Social in Sunnyvale, the property will include 250 residences and a 263-room hotel with over 24,000-sq.-ft of state-of-the-art function space including 11,000-sq.-ft of flexible meeting and event space, 4,300-sq.-ft of outdoor space and 9,100-sq.-ft of public spaces.
M Social will be the first steel frame modular hotel built in California, according to the developer. Modular construction allows for more efficient build times, reduced construction waste and less impact on the environment and on neighborhoods.
“The hotel will showcase a California-influenced stylish and vibrant design, and be positioned at the forefront of hospitality technology, enabling guests and residents to embrace the innovation and visionary mindset of those living and working in the area,” Millennium said in a statement.
In addition to other features, the complex will feature 5G wireless capabilities, providing hotel guests and residents access to the fastest wireless technology available.
Construction is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2021.
