The Post Montecito


Los Angeles developer Runyon to turn the Las Aves complex across from the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge into Montecito’s new shopping center, The Post.

The Post will have two full-service restaurants and two smaller food-and- beverage outlets and beyond that they’ll shift away from the services that currently dominate Las Aves and toward retail, particularly apparel. The Post will have an eclectic mix of merchants, but be completely geared to the community of Santa Barbara and Montecito.

When we first saw the property, we were struck by the incredible landscaping, the character of the buildings, and that beautiful courtyard. We like the idea of people ‘posting up’ there — a community gathering space, a place to grab a coffee or hang out with their kids.
