That "unique Santa Barbara style" could be interpreted in a not so nostalgic way too......as in La Entrada, Canary Hotel and Miramar. To me, THOSE have met with the genre......insofar as sitting vacant for long periods of time in large part due to the bureaucracy of SB. Is that what we want for the El Encanto now?

Are you from Texas?! ItÂ's just that "Expand Airports: Save the Whales" sounds kind of like a Texas political platitude. IÂ'm not against the expansion.....but billing anything to do with flying obese american about the continent as "green" just seems.....Texan. :-)

The developers should sue the individual city council and architecture review board members to recoup losses that would not have been incurred had the approvals been given faster, and the lovely project come online b4 the crash.
Oh well......post-prosperity public sector sb will; IÂ'm sure, come to realize that they are impotent without private investment.

I think the rendering is very California: chic and progressive.....like the avant garde bungalows designed in the 50Â's by Craig Ellwood in Los Angeles...that juxtapose against the kitschy Chateau MarmontÂ's feux Normanism.
Does SB really need more red tile?! It is 2009 in case no one noticed!!
I say VIVA the minimalist design!! and beach access too!!

I agree with JessicaÂ's comment about the round the world jetting negating the productÂ's green claim. The green revolution is just marketing 101.....create a need: "save the world" and invent a product that is perceived to satisfy that need.
6 billion little piglets consuming like southern californians buying little packaged salads is just not sustainable....that is the bottom line.

A POEM FOR THE GRIEVING...Do not stand at my grave and weep.I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow,I am the diamond glints on snow.I am the sunlight on ripened grain,I am the gentle autumn's rain.When you awaken in the morning's hush,I am the swift uplifting rushof quiet birds in circled flight.I am the stars that shine at night.Do not stand at my grave and cry,I am not there, I did not die...-Anonymous

I am so sorry to hear about Louie. Thank goodness you were able to save Liam. Have you heard about having a petÂ's ashes turned into gemstones? I like the idea of memorializing a beloved pet.......So, so sorry to hear about your loss.

We are exhausting the supply of eccentric, deep pocketed developers who are crazy and masochistic enough to attempt redeveloping the MM....... I suppose if the status quo of having an abandoned motor hotel appeals to the community more than a redeveloped site, then fine. Otherwise, let the guy redevelop people. Montecito and SB are stage sets......with their imagined pastÂ's created only through developerÂ's past interventions. Present day Miramar is a prop that kills MontecitoÂ's fascistly imposed and staged agrarian self image.
