Paseo Chapala – Mixed-Use
RRM designed and entitled the vibrant mixed use project Paseo Chapala which located across Chapala Street from Paseo Nuevo in the commercial heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Sidewalk cafés and shops line historic Chapala and De La Guerra Streets, screening a parking garage at grade level. An elevated paseo and courtyard system access an Andalusian-style village of townhouses, cottages, and offices. Eight of the 29 residences are reserved as affordable housing for purchase by lottery for families of lower and moderate income. The project is located in the city center within walking distances to the transit center, commercial core, and entertainment district, thus helping to reduce auto dependency.
