One of a series of high-rises erected on Mission Street near the Yerba Buena Center in the 2000s, the Saint Regis Museum Tower contained 269 luxury hotel rooms and 102 equally luxurious condominiums when it opened in 2005. The building accommodated the Museum of the African Diaspora, and absorbed the adjacent Harrison Building within its space.
