Proposed AUD project would demolish existing Santa Barbara cottages

Story poles are up for one of the largest proposed developments for downtown Santa Barbara, encompassing eight parcels on nearly 36,000 square feet across three separate streets.

The project falls under the City’s Average Density Unit (AUD) Incentive Program.

The targeted sites are 226-232 E. Anapamu Street, 1117 and 1121 Garden Street and 223 E. Figueroa Street, units G and H.

The E. Anapamu Street site includes the small cottage next to the Santa Barbara police station.

If approved, all of the existing cottages and buildings would be demolished, except for two historic Queen Anne-style homes on E. Anapamu Street.

The 64,000 square foot proposed development would go as high as four stories (the maximum height for AUD projects) and encompass 52 apartment units as well as commercial space. Underground parking would provide more than 70 spots.

The concept review hearing for this proposed AUD development is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Thursday before the Santa Barbara Planning Commission at City Hall, 735 Anacapa Street. (AUD is linked to a state mandate to provide more workforce housing.)
