A 101-unit residential project in western Goleta has broken ground, and the developer expects to finish construction and start selling units in June.

This is the third incarnation of The Chadmar Group project, now called The Hideaway Bungalows & Coastal Preserve, on 14 acres of undeveloped land at 7900 Hollister Ave. across from Sandpiper Golf Club.

The first version, the 105-unit Aradon project, was proposed in the 1990s before the City of Goleta incorporated, and the second project, the Residences at Sandpiper, was the subject of litigation between the developer and the city.

Haskell’s Landing has been approved by the city and the California Coastal Commission, and is now called The Hideaway.

About half of the land will be protected open space, according to developer Chuck Lande.

The 101 residential units, designed by Scheurer Architects, include single-family residences, townhouse units, townhouse carriage units and studio units. Prices have not been announced yet.

Lande has said that the project is estimated to bring in $1 million in property taxes and about $4 million in construction-related fees.

Wish we could stop this urban sprawl – seems we are creeping up the Gaviota Coast by ourselves.

That is the loopiest comment I have seen yet. Bobby, the urban development and limits of the city already pass this parcel by nearly a mile. What about this is sprawl?

What is wrong with these numbers?
  $1 million in property tax from 101 units? This means these units average price is $990,000 to generate $9,900 each in property tax.
  Then of course the City of Goleta only gets 10% of those taxes and then due to revenue sharing half of that is passed through to the county. So our city will net $50 thousand in total property tax revenue from this entire development.
  So for those who love growth, here is the question: Do you like subsidizing this developments fire and police services and other infrasructure cost?  Every new house that is built drives up demands for unfunded services. We pay for this through high fees or a reduction in service.
  And at these prices how does this help adrress the housing issues faced by workers who cannot get in due to high prices or low wages?
This may or may not be a nice development archetectually but there are no arguments as to how it improves life or the cost of living in Goleta.

Richard, there are property taxes on the land owned collectively by the HOA.  So, no, each unit will not go for $990,000.

In addition, a fire station is being built adjacent to the development, construction for which was partially funded by the project, as well as staffing.

Doesn’t sound like a lack of services, or anyone being unduly burdened by a higher cost of living.
