Goleta Planning Commission Approves 175-Unit Mixed-Use Development in Old Town

Plans call for town homes and live-work units, along with a community area for events, community garden and fitness center

Goleta could soon be home to a 175-unit mixed-use project in Old Town, as the Planning Commission Monday night voted 4-0 to allow the project to move forward.

Commissioner Katie Maynard recused herself from the vote because she lives in the area.

“It will be a wonderful project for Old Town,” Planning Commission Chairman Eric Onnen said.

“It provides needed workforce housing and some new commercial space via the shopkeepers’ units.”

The Old Town Village Project plans call for 113 town homes, 34 live-work town homes, 28 shopkeeper town homes, a community center and other park amenities.

Anderson Burton Celebrates Grand Opening

Anderson Burton Construction recently celebrated the grand opening of their new office located in the Village of Arroyo Grande.

RRM was hired by Anderson Burton Construction to renovate and expand an existing 2,000 sf office building in Arroyo Grande, into a new 4,800 sf corporate office space. The “farm fusion” architectural language that was employed allows the new office building to fit into a transitional part of Arroyo Grande that changes from a residential neighborhood into the Downtown Village. The agrarian or farm portions of the building that resonate with the surrounding residence are fused with the stone entry tower that reflects the historic locally quarried sandstone buildings found throughout the downtown.

Upper floor walkways overlook the atrium lobby, which is a high-volume space with comfortable seating areas. In addition to providing open office areas for workgroups, the building also includes a full-service café, multi-purpose meeting rooms that open out to the plaza, and a day-care facility for employees’ children.

The main entry drive for the campus includes iconic architectural features to help identify the MINDBODY campus. The site also includes landscaped pathways that will connect existing and new office buildings.
