In 2013, Mesa Lane Partners acquired the largest single tract of land in the highly sought-after downtown waterfront area of Santa Barbara. This historic property is currently being transformed into a vibrant, adaptive-reuse development complete with mixed-income multifamily housing as well as spaces for retail, a restaurant, a cafe, and office space.

SOMO is a game changer for the growing city, and has been hailed by officials as “the most exciting new project in the city’s history.” Upon completion, this high-profile development will provide Santa Barbara with 64 new apartments, over 50,000 square feet of new commercial space, and workshop & studio spaces for the local arts community.
