SAN FRANCISCO-Vertical construction is underway for Trinity Place, which at 1,900 units is believed to be the largest apartment development here since just after World War II. Following a six-year entitlement process, the first phase of the four-phase, estimated $380-million project by developer Angelo Sangiacomo’s Trinity Properties is slated for completion in late 2009 or early 2010.

The four-building development plan covers one-half of a city block at the intersection of Market Street and Eighth Avenue, across the street from the Orpheum Theatre, one block from Civic Center Plaza and one-half mile from Westfield’s recently renovated and expanded San Francisco Centre shopping mall. Sangiacomo and city officials hope the mix of tenants and community amenities as well as the architectural concept by Miami-based Arquitectonica will spark a renaissance in the Civic Center district.

The first phase, at 1188 Mission Street, will be a 24-story tower with 440 units. Approximately 80% of the units will be rent-controlled, replacing on a one-for-one basis those that will be demolished to make way for the three subsequent phases, which include another 1,360 units and 63,000 sf of street-level retail. The project includes parking for 1,350.
