A Trip To Trio

I visited Trio a few weeks ago (the same weekend I visited Gallery.)

Trio exterior

It was 75% sold and they want to move the rest of the units before the end of the year. To that end there is a 4% selling office commission instead of the usual 3%.

I don’t have much nice to say about Trio. The building felt cheap and the interior was dirty. In particular I don’t like the screens they use that have cutouts for the opener, the drywall/paint job looked bad, the intersection between the carpet and the baseboard is off, some outlet layouts weren’t that well considered, and weird Mosler style access panels etc.

What I did like, and that few developments do is that the common area is combined with the lobby.

Trio lobby

Usually the common area is buried deep in the building and I suspect sees little action. With this model I can imagine it becoming a real hub for the community.

    Another big complaint for Trio is the noise levels between homes and from the hallway into the units. Not much imagination is required to know what your neighbors are up to.

    That subsidized apartment building next door (home to Vespa) looks much better.
