South Coast Agency Announces Plans For New Affordable Housing Complex Focused On Homeless

A South Coast agency has announced plans for a new affordable housing complex specifically focused on helping the homeless.

The Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara is buying two pieces of land on the 100 block of Cota Street for the project.  The plan is to build a three story, 30 unit building on 11,000 square feet of land.

The property will cost $2.6 million. The project is expected to cost about $14.8 million.  Plans call for work to start on the complex in September of 2021, with the units ready for occupancy in August of 2022.
