Trinity: The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost of Vapid Corporate SF Media are: 7×7, San Fran Mag and The Bold Italic

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Here’s the proof – all mentioned in the same breath:

Oh, and the comments section is worse now…

You see, it’s not just me.

Now over at San Fran’s favorite “luxury magazine,” well, PAEANS FOR SCIONS continues. See? They’re written just like press releases:

To call Daniel Lurie San Francisco’s best connected do-gooder is to undersell the man

Why We Love to Love Larry Ellison’s Daughter

But what’s this?

Getty’s Other, Other Family

This one’s certainly written like all the others, but the title there strikes a different tone, non?

IDK, maybe Gordo will think it funny.

Which San Francisco scion will get his or her paean next? I can’t wait!

Were $500-Per-Month Studios Promised for Trinity Place 4.5 Years Ago? Yes – Plus, What About Trinity Plaza Tenants?

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Ah mem’ries from all the way back in aught-eight – let’s hear from Angelo “Father of Rent Control” Sangiacomo from back in the day:

“Who the hell is building buildings today, 440 rentals in San Francisco, and paying all cash? With rents down there at $500 and $700?”

Now, what are the chances that hundreds of people will be renting $500 studios in a new building at Eight and Market anytime soon?

Absolute zero.

Oh well.

Oh, here it is, the old Trinity Plaza at Eighth and Market and its replacement, the new Trinity Place, just behind:

Speaking of which, the existing tenants of Trinity Plaza need to move out soon, you know, for the soon-to-come implosion of the old building, but what’s up with all of these cleaning demands coming from Management?

Let’s hear from a youthful tenant who’s losing his place:

“Now we get forms with detailed instructions on everything that needs to be cleaned before you move out. In my mind, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom / toilet / sinks / oven etc should be enough. There are some pretty weird demands in here considering this building is being demolished. Some examples:

All carpets must be vacuumed and shampooed
Wood or linoleum floors must be mopped, waxed or polished using appropriate cleaning products.
Clean sink(s). Hardware should be clean, free of water spots and shiny
Cabinets must be cleaned inside and out. Scrub fronts clean to remove fingerprints and food.
Clean baseboards and coving. Clean, mop and wax linoleum floors with appropriate cleaning products.”

I cry foul.

On It Goes…

Oh, and for the record, this is the Senator Carole Migden Law - it’s in effect statewide:

“If the tenant and landlord cannot reach an agreement on the amount of the security deposit returned, the tenant can file a lawsuit against the landlord for return of the security deposit.  The tenant can sue for:

  • The amount of the deposit, plus
  • Twice the amount of the security deposit in damages. The judge may give the tenant these additional damages if the landlord retained the deposit in bad faith.

The tenant can sue the landlord in small claims, which is informal and inexpensive, as long as the total amount sued for is $10,000 or less. Click for more information on Small Claims.”

San Francisco’s Trinity Church Looks Just Like Hogwarts, Except for That Dangerous Horizontal Ladder Its Workers Use

Can you spot the ladder marring the view – does it belong up there?

Workers are supposed to hook in and then traverse. See?

But if there’s a slip-up, a person could land on the sloped roof below and then go for a ride like a ski jumper ending up dead on Bush Street far below.

Oh well.

Appears as if Trinity Plaza wants Gay People to Move On Up to Eighth and Market

You see that? “Renting with PRIDE – 415 861-3333″

Well it _is_ June that would explain that.

Hey, what about that new building back there? How’s that working out?
