The Presidio Springs senior housing complex was developed in 1977 as one of the first federal public housing projects in Santa Barbara. At 122 units, it is the Housing Authority’s largest property by unit count. In 2013, the project was disposed of by Housing Authority through the Section 18 disposition process and acquired by the Santa Barbara Affordable Housing Group, the Housing Authority’s non-profit instrumentality.
