San Francisco's Trinity Place Kicks Off Phase 3Contributor: Swinerton Project Team | November 14, 2013
The future of urban building is flying high in San Francisco’s Mid-Market corridor, as several Swinerton projects help energize this historic neighborhood. In July, the first residents moved into the newest addition at Trinity Place after an aggressive 23-month construction schedule. With 22 stories towering over Mission Street at Eighth Street, Phase 2 of the four-phase Trinity Place residential project features 418 studio and one-bedroom units in the heart of the action. Swinerton’s San Francisco team worked long hours for the last two months of construction in order to complete last-minute change orders and deliver the project on time to a very happy owner.
Exceeding the client’s expectations on Phase 2, Swinerton was selected to provide preconstruction services for Phase 3—a $228 million project that includes a 19-story residential tower with six levels of below-grade parking. Designed by Arquitectonica, the sculptural, L-shaped complex will complement the existing towers of Phases 1 and 2 with an exterior of precast concrete panels and glazing. Residents will have their pick of 546 studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units featuring spacious floor plans and quality finishes. Ground-level retail and restaurant space will facilitate true city living.
A landscaped plaza will span between the towers of Phases 2 and 3 for a 40,000-square-foot green oasis amidst the concrete bustle of the neighborhood. Modern water features and sculptural elements of mythic proportions will make a visit to this urban garden no ordinary stroll in the park.
Swinerton already has received the green light to proceed with excavation, shoring, and dewatering of the site and plans to submit a GMP for construction services in December. Planned for a 36-month schedule, Phase 3 is set to welcome tenants in early 2017. Once all four phases of Trinity Place are complete in 2020, the complex will add 2,000 much-needed units to San Francisco’s notoriously crowded rental market.
