This third phase of Trinity Place on Market Street in San Francisco is being planned. « Commercial | TRINITY PROPERTIES – TRINITY PLACE Go to Market I f all goes according to plan, Angelo Sangiacomo, owner of Trinity Properties in San Francisco, will complete in the summer of 2013 the second phase of Trinity Place, part of his four-phase 1,900-unit apartment complex being built on the site of the historic Del Webb Hotel. Formerly patronized by the Rat Pack of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and others when visiting the City by the Bay, the former hotel is now apartments Sangiacomo owns. One wing of the old structure has been removed to allow construction of the second phase of the Trinity Place project currently under construction, and the entire hotel will be razed for the third phase. When Sangiacomo refers to Trinity Place as “his” project, he means it – he personally has financed the entire development. “It took me 30 years to get this permit,” Sangiacomo declares. “What I did was I got a development agreement from the city for 25 years to develop the site. It’s in the center of the city. It’s right near City Hall – a great location. It’s been a rundown area for a long time. However, because of this project, there’s going to be a tremendous renewal there. As a matter of fact, Twitter recently announced that it is moving its head- SAN FRANCISCO IS GETTING 1,900 APARTMENTS JUST SOUTH OF MARKET STREET. BY RUSS GAGER quarters there, one-and-a-half blocks away.” Sangiacomo obtained the building permit by agreeing to house the 400 residents of his former hotel in the new Trinity Place for their lifetimes at the same rent they were paying. “It was kind of an expensive thing to get that permit, but that’s the only way I could have gotten it,” Sangiacomo maintains. “They put it on the ballot once to stop me from doing it, and I won, but they were going to put it on the ballot again. I got tired of fighting, so I thought, ‘Let’s get this over with.’ This is a very tough city to get a permit. They don’t want you to build. It’s like trying to get a permit in Florence or Venice, Italy.” Tight Space The first phase of the project – a 24-story tower with 440 apartment units – was completed in late 2009. Phase 2 – which began in August – will be 418 units with 22 stories when completed in the summer of 2013. Phases 3 and 4 are in the early planning stages. The phase 2 tower is concrete with post-tensioned slabs. Glass and aluminum curtain wall and precast concrete make up the exterior.
