The Arlington Theater is often described as the “jewel of Santa Barbara”. The original vision for the site was to create a building that was to be surrounded by small shops like a cathedral in the middle of a village. That vision was never realized. This proposal takes an adjacent open parking lot and transforms it into a mixed use village consisting of public open spaces, courtyards, 10,000 square feet of commercial space and 33 housing units in an effort to bring the original vision to fruition.
