Paul Mitchell Building Sold to SBCC Foundation

Last week, the SBCC Foundation purchased the old Paul Mitchell beauty school on Anacapa Street for $5.3 million. The school’s cosmetology program is expected to move into the 10,000 square foot space by summer 2017. Currently, the program is housed in a smaller space at the Magnolia Shopping Center in Goleta. “I am very excited about it,” said foundation director Geoff Green, noting the property purchase is a first for the nonprofit. The deal functions as a sound investment that directly serves the school, he said. Asked if they have more plans to buy land, Green said, “I think if this works, we are certainly open.”
