Mixed-Use Residential Complex Adds a Total of 1900 Units to San Francisco Housing Inventory as Workers Begin to Return to the City
City’s Largest Whole Foods Market to be Located at Trinity Place
SAN FRANCISCO (September 30, 2021) – Trinity, one of San Francisco’s foremost developers and managers of residential rental properties, has announced the completion of the fourth and final phase of Trinity Place, one of the largest apartment complexes on the West Coast and the fulfillment of legendary developer Angelo Sangiacomo’s signature project. In addition to providing much-needed housing, the complex will also feature the largest Whole Foods store in San Francisco, appreciably impacting the Mid-Market neighborhood.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architects Arquitectonica, Trinity Place comprises a total of 1900 apartment homes and occupies the city block of 8th Street between Market and Mission streets. The newly completed final phase of the development is a 17-story building located at 1177 Market Street and comprises 502 one-, two- and two-bedroom + den units. All units are now available for lease.
Trinity Place represents the culmination of Sangiacomo’s long-range vision and a monument to his lifelong love for the city and steadfast commitment to urbanism. He purchased the 4.5-acre parcel in 1977 and broke ground for the first of the four structures in 2007. The first phase opened at 1188 Mission Street in 2010, the second at 1190 Mission Street in 2013, and the third at 33 8th Street in 2017.
“It’s heart-warming to see Angelo’s vision realized four decades after he purchased the site,” said Walter Schmidt, executive managing director of Trinity. “Angelo loved San Francisco and always believed that the Mid-Market area had the potential to return to the grandeur of its heyday. This was his final project and a very personal one. The complex pays homage to his Italian heritage in many ways, including a stone walkway reflective of an ancient Pompeiian mosaic, an Italian marble feature in each of the four lobbies, and Mission Street gate panels that depict the streets of his ancestral Genoa. He saw Trinity Place as his gift to San Francisco and residents will find these special touches in every aspect of the property.”
Marked by understated elegance at every turn, features at 1177 Market Street include high ceilings, huge windows with stunning city views, decks, rooftop amenities, chef-inspired kitchens, stainless steel appliances, wood floors, stone countertops and, in most homes, washers and dryers. All apartments at Trinity Place include fully equipped fitness centers, resident lounges, well-lit and professionally managed underground parking, bike storage, 24-hour reception, 24-hour courtesy patrol, and laundry centers on each floor. From its location adjacent the Civic Center Muni and BART station and tech shuttle stops, Trinity Place offers residents swift commutes to and from work and throughout downtown.
With the completion of 1177 Market, Trinity Place contributes significantly to San Francisco’s housing needs. The final phase at 1177 Market provides an additional 88 one-bedroom, 402 two-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom with den contemporary apartments. Included throughout all four phases are 231 units designated for below market rate affordable housing, and an additional 360 of the units are rent controlled. These units feature the same quality finishes and amenities as standard-priced units.
In addition to providing residents with convenient access to dining, shopping and other services, Trinity Place’s more than 80,000 square feet of retail space will further contribute to the revitalization of the Mid-Market neighborhood.
“Angelo Sangiacomo was a pioneer in envisioning Trinity Place and the role it could play in transforming the Mid-Market district,” said leading commercial real estate broker Kazuko Morgan, vice chairman at Cushman & Wakefield. “Angelo’s passion and attention to detail are apparent in every detail of the project. We spent many hours over the years brainstorming which retail tenants and uses would be the best choices to help bolster and activate the neighborhood. He wanted only the best for San Francisco, and the highly anticipated Whole Foods supports his vision as it will benefit Trinity Place residents and the larger Mid-Market community as well as attract other quality retail to the area.”
“It’s incredible to think about the arc of this project,” noted Schmidt. “Construction began right before the recession hit in 2008, and we’re celebrating Trinity Place’s completion just as we begin to emerge from the pandemic. We’re proud to be a part of the area’s revival once again.”
