ICON @ UCSB is a five-story mixed-use student housing project two blocks from the UC Santa Barbara campus. The property features private terraces, a gymnasium and spacious rooftop deck. The design also includes a three-tier, seventeen-car automated car lift parking system.
When the project was brought to Abbott | Reed, it was in trouble. The owner was $800,000 over budget. The Abbott | Reed team proved able to reengineer the building and complete work on an expedited schedule of only twelve months. Ultimately, the building was finished under budget and in time for students to move in the following semester.
