"Who the hell is building buildings today, 440 rentals in San Francisco, and paying all cash?" Damn good question, it is. That's Angelo Sangiacomo several months agoâ€” the "mogul," if you will, behind Market and Hyde's 8th's upcoming Trinity Place, and owner of the decidedly stale apartment complex Trinity Plaza. And the answer to his question? Yep, Sangiacomo himselfâ€” which explains why, as projects elsewhere teeter on the brink, the first phase of Trinity Place just keeps reaching for the stars, brave little toaster that it is. A portent of tall things to come, the building's now visible from Market Street, peeking out from behind Trinity Plaza. By the time it's done, it should be rubbing shoulders with neighbor Soma Grand. From previous renderings, it looks like this one's going to be the tallest in Trinity Place, which means it'll stop at 26 stories. The shadows cometh!
