An awkwardly-shaped piece of city-owned property went from an abandoned lot, to a colorful village of 39 tiny homes built to give temporary shelter to some of the city’s homeless population. Each home is 64 square feet, and there are shared laundry facilities on site.
Units cost $7,500 each, including labor and materials, and were shipped as ready-to-assemble stacks of panels from builder Pallet Shelter in Everett, Washington. The total cost of the project was about $5 million, according to Kerkorian’s office, with the majority spent on re-routing water, power, and sewer lines to the site. Hope of the Valley gets a $55 per person daily reimbursement from the city to cover three meals and social services for residents.
The best news? This isn’t the last village LA is working on! What do you think?
