Green mixed-use project at UCSB nears completion

This fall, UCSB students will have the opportunity to live in a brand new, luxury building designed by world-renowned architects. More importantly, it’s a block from campus and has an Italian restaurant and a cupcake bakery/cafe on the ground floor. As the four-story building nears completion, a final retail storefront space of 2,751 square feet is being offered for lease by Hayes Commercial Group.

The project, called the LOOP, is located at 6533-6539 Trigo Rd and will be open for business by summer and represents the first property of its kind in Isla Vista. Developed by Mesa Lane Partners, the building has already garnered several honors for environmentally-friendly design and is on track for LEED gold or platinum certification.

Strategically situated on Isla Vista’s busiest bike and pedestrian route to campus, the contemporary façade will be the new focal point for all southbound traffic on Embarcadero Del Norte. The building is also across the street from the I.V. Theater, one of the university’s largest and busiest lecture halls.

“This development is an exciting breakthrough for Isla Vista,” said Kristopher Roth of Hayes Commercial Group. “It has so much going for it: location, design, size, sustainability, and a smart mixed-use configuration.”

The project includes three retail spaces on the ground floor, two of which will be occupied by Pizza My Heart and Crushcakes Café. One remaining space of 2,751 square feet is available for lease.
