Santa Barbara gets a bit greener with new City Ventures project
Santa Barbara is now home to the largest green development of single-family homes in the country.
Santa Ana-based developer City Ventures broke ground Nov. 10 on a 48-townhome project in Santa Barbara’s East Beach area. Dubbed the Santa Barbara East Beach Collection, the project is striving for LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, according to City Ventures. Construction is expected to wrap up by late 2011.
The townhomes, located at the intersection of Montecito Street and Calle Cesar Chavez, can be purchased starting in January and are priced from the mid-$400,000s up, the developer said. They will range from 972 to 2,210 square feet each, with up to three bedrooms and three-and-half baths.
