METREON is a retail entertainment center built by Millennium Partners and WDG Ventures, Inc. in 1999 for the Sony Corporation of America. The 350,000 square foot complex rises four floors from the Yerba Buena Gardens Esplanade to become part of the 22-acre mixed-use development known as Yerba Buena Gardens.

Located in San Francisco's revitalized South of Market neighborhood, the entertainment center is adjacent to the Moscone Convention Center, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. At METREON, Sony and the Developers made a commitment to provide opportunities for local, women and minority owned businesses throughout all levels of the project's development.

During its initial years of operation Metreon proved extremely successful in drawing visitors from the tourist and local Bay Area markets. This unique entertainment and retail venue heightened the appeal of the South of Market district of San Francisco.
