More about the project:


As the largest private development in Isla Vista in more than 40 years, Ed St. George and Associate’s building at 870 Camino del Sur provides 56 units and 106 bedrooms of new, energy efficient, high quality rental housing in 52,700 square feet. The design incorporates numerous innovative sustainable features, including a perforated metal skin that shades the building façades, energy efficient LED exterior lighting, permeable gravel parking lots, rental discounts to hybrid vehicle owners, a four vehicle car sharing service, and an owner-sponsored pilot program to eliminate the utility bills of tenants that reduce their energy use.
