A Climbing Gym Is Opening in Noleta

••• Tickets are on sale for AIA Santa Barbara’s ArchitecTours event on October 1, “in person after a virtual tour in 2021 and a canceled tour in 2020 due to the pandemic. The projects on the tour include several unique residences; a contemporary cliffside home on The Mesa [by Winick Architects and pictured above and below; photos by Erin Feinblatt], a renovated modern farmhouse in Downtown Santa Barbara, and two homes in Montecito that share a strong relationship with their natural surroundings. Also, on the tour are several historic building renovations including the former Hollister Family Office building and adobe which now hosts the Appleton Partners Studio and architectural library. Additionally, tour goers will also have the chance to visit two new multi-family housing buildings downtown.”

••• The northbound Highway 101 offramp at Sheffield is now expected to reopen early, on September 27 (which is the same day the Evans/Lillie Avenue northbound offramp closes).

••• The Pad confirmed that it’s opening a climbing gym in Magnolia Center (on Hollister between Turnpike and Patterson).

••• Through September 29 at Caldwell Snyder: The After Party, paintings by Vancouver artist Bobbie Burgers. “Her large-scale paintings and drawings expand and explode the tradition of floral still-life with vivid, gestural blooms. In the two decades of her practice, her trajectory has moved from images approaching realism to, more recently, abstracted blossoms that double as metaphors for the act of painting, which Burgers compares to the brief, fragile lifespan of a flower: a moment to be grasped ‘with all its frailty and complexity.'”

••• The Cult plays the Arlington Theatre on November 19. P.S. Every time I walk by, I think about this post and laugh.

••• One of the one-eighth shares at the Pacaso house at 1131 Las Alturas on the Riviera has come on the market for $1.575 million—significantly higher than the $1.085 million the seller paid four months ago. The listing agent is Pacaso’s Chief Acquisitions Officer.

••• An unnamed interior designer (“LWG” is all I’ve been told) is having a warehouse sale of items that that I imagine have been used to stage houses.
