Developer Ed St. George secured approval this week for a 12-unit housing project (artist’s rendering above) on Santa Barbara’s Westside. The development, proposed under the city’s high-density housing program, will level an existing duplex and three single-family homes at 1220 and 1222 San Andres Street and replace them with five duplexes and two single-family homes. A total of 17 parking spaces will be provided. St. George is also heading a development plan for a hotel, commercial space, and art gallery near West Beach. Four apartments and a small office at 302 and 308 West Montecito Street would be demolished to make way for the project.
