A unique and pretty cool new project is reportedly underway that will bring 20 new micro homes to the campus of Glencliff United Methodist Church when finished.
The purpose of the new micro homes will be to provide bridge housing for homeless people in the Nashville area and hopefully reduce the number of deaths among the homeless population, which tallied 87 alone just last year.
Being called the Village of Glencliff, the project is being spearheaded by Open Table Nashville, a local nonprofit group that promotes and supports affordable, low-income housing.
Each of the 20 micro homes at Glencliff United Methodist will be built on a 6-acre site at 2901 Glencliff Road and range in size from 220 square feet for a one-person home to 400 square feet for a larger home big enough for couples. The homes, which will be permanent structures, will all have running water, electricity, a kitchen, and a bathroom.
In addition to housing, there will also be a full-time care coordinator onsite at the Village of Glencliff working to provide mental and physical health care and support that will hopefully help each of the community’s residents eventually secure permanent housing.
In the meantime, Centric Architecture, the lead designer for the village, has already provided a great 3D micro home tour of what to expect from the development, which can be viewed below.
