Combining Connectivity + Creativity
A project of this magnitude would not be possible without good partners. That is why Group I is proud to be partnering with the following organizations to make 950-974 Market a reality:
We are Group i, a San Francisco-based design, development, and property management company with a long track record of successfully reinventing boutique city buildings. Through insightful and innovative design, our projects embrace the city experience by fostering 24-hour livable communities with a mix of uses in each location. Group i is the master developer for the 950-974 Market project.
Joy Ou is Group i's President and CEO. She has over 25 years of experience in urban, mixed-use developments in the Bay Area. Joy’s extensive and versatile design background imbues every Group i project with a unique combination of design-oriented solutions and idiosyncratic style. Joy is extensively involved in philanthropy and volunteer activities, both locally and abroad, serving on the board of directors of the San Francisco Art Institute and the Wildflowers Institute, and in an advisory capacity for the Luggage Store Gallery and Global Heritage Fund. She also actively supports San Francisco’s Chinatown Community Development Center and several Tenderloin youth organizations. In addition, Joy serves as Executive Director of Ou Jong Fa Foundation in Taiwan and is a past Trustee for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
We are in the process of finalizing an agreement with a hotel partner that shares our commitment to unique experiences, integration of the arts and community engagement, among many other values. We look forward to announcing our hotel partner in the near future. Stay tuned!
