Back in March, Trinity asked the city if they could count the studios in their SoMa high-rise as one-bedrooms for affordability requirements, since their studios are actually really nice. How nice? The planning commissioners agreed in all but their ruling, saying the 460-square-foot apartments they toured were more like junior bedrooms. Junior bedrooms with swiveling flat-screen TVs*. Today, our man on the inside localsonly shares some James Bond spy shots from Trinity's relocation center, noting that the actual units will have white cabinets with black countertops, rather than black on black as pictured. And as evidenced by the grainy photos: separate bedroom and living areas. Trinity, truly generous.
*UPDATE: Trinity notes that management hasn't yet decided whether they are indeed offering the flat screen TV upgrade, though the wiring's in the wall already if residents want to install them.
