Salt Lake City has announced plans to build its own tiny home village. Taking a cue from Los Angeles’s Alexandria Park Village and Chandler Boulevard Bridge Home Village, this new addition will be designed to house the city’s homeless population. According to a press release from last month, The Other Side Academy, a vocational and behavioral training school for adults with criminal histories, substance abuse, and homelessness, has partnered with the city to construct what’s been dubbed The Other Side Village. Fom the looks of the project renderings, this is more than just a shelter for the homeless — it’s an entire community.
As ABC 4 reported, the village is aiming for 400 to 500 homes that measure roughly 400-square-feet each (significantly larger than Los Angeles’s 64-square-foot tiny homes). Another bonus: Each home will be equipped with a kitchen and bathroom.
