This projects intent is to explore the revitalization of Mission Creek Lagoon and the integration of a community boathouse. This site has a rich history going back to early 1900’s and this project will help protect the ecology of the lagoon as well as celebrate its importance. The City of Santa Barbara is the primary client for this development and will be a joint use facility on public land. The city will lease the boathouse to the Santa Barbara Rowing Foundation, an existing organization that helps support the growth of rowing in Santa Barbara. They will be a great tenant that helps promote the sport through reaching out to schools, universities and other rowing programs. This public facility will be home to many different users but the rowing foundation will be the permanent tenant and resource for the community. This project coincides with the city’s goals of redeveloping ocean front parcels, as well as revitalizing Mission Creek Lagoon. This project will be a precedent for new development along Cabrillo Blvd, as well as be Santa Barbara’s first Community Boathouse.
