The owners of two apartment buildings on Del Playa Drive in Isla Vista — 6663, shown with a new chainlink fence blocking access to the balcony, and 6653, next door to the right — must come up with engineering solutions following Sunday’s cliff collapse, county officials say. James Gelb, owner of 6653 Del Playa, says he plans to demolish the two apartments on the west end of his building, shown here, and two on the east end. A portion of the balcony from 6653 Del Playa is lying below the rock slide.
