Oregon State AD Scott Barnes says Reser Stadium renovation project remains on schedule

Oregon State athletic director Scott Barnes joined me on the radio show this week to talk about the upcoming football season and the Reser Stadium remodel project.

Listen to the full interview here.

Barnes said the pandemic has not affected the $140 million project, which is expected to be completed in 2023 and improve the west side of the stadium.

“The donors who want to participate in this project are still there,” Barnes said. “None of this has changed.”

On out-of-control athletic department spending nationally:

“We have to get our head around this. It’s not sustainable. We have to find a way to manage it and to course-correct in some form or fashion… it’s something that is not sustainable.”

On potentially trying to make-up the canceled football game with Oklahoma State:

“That final decision hasn’t been made. We’ll look at all the options and make a decision based on what’s available and see what’s there… we don’t want to stray from our model.”

It sounded a lot like Barnes and OSU want to start fresh with a new series.

Barnes also talked about fly fishing in the mountains, his football program, the budget, scheduling the 2020 season and more. It’s a candid listen with an AD who is charged with managing the Beavers’ athletic department.

Designer Scott Gillen’s Latest Home In The Malibu Series, Case No. 3, Hits Market For $75 Million

Malibu designer and builder magnate Scott Gillen is disrupting the real-estate industry one multimillion-dollar home at a time.

Gillen, a former stunt driver and commercial director, founded Unvarnished, a unique brokerage that conceptualizes, builds and lists homes. He personally directs, designs and develops each home and brings in Los Angeles’ top real-estate agents to close sales. Gillen has developed more than 30 homes for wealthy Los Angeles residents, yet it’s his most recent project, The Case, the most exclusive private residential development in the country, that is making headlines.

In 2017, Gillen purchased 24 acres of undeveloped, oceanfront land in Malibu for a record-breaking $50 million. He is transforming this land into The Case, a five-home private enclave that is a central part of his 15-home package of architecturally significant properties, called The Malibu Series, representing more than $500 million in real estate. Properties within The Malibu Series include: the New Castle, five Case Residences, Malibu Road Beach House, Paradise Cove House, Cliffside, Point Dume Compound, Serra Retreat, Carbon Canyon, and the Who Homes: Where, Why, What and Who. Homes range from $14 million to more than $100 million and are coveted for the seclusion and proximity to the ocean, as well as the world-class architectural design, the distinct mid-century modern-meets-contemporary vibe and integration into the natural landscape. 

Forbes has an exclusive look inside The Malibu Series’ newest listing, the $75 million Case No. 3 residence. Case No. 3 is one of five homes in the Case Residences, which are being built at once and set to be completed in 2021.
