Status: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Owner: FLORESTA LLC, Hilltop Properties, LLP
Site Plan: Moore Bass Consulting, Inc.
Value of Improvements: $7,800,000.00
Description: Proposed is a 130-unit master planned "tiny house" community over a 4.09 acre section of a larger 32.427 acre parcel outside of Capital Circle along Highway 20. The proposed homes would range in size from 250 to 400 square feet. The concept is said to be patterned after the trendy "small homes" featured on HGTV and the developer, Tallahassee Philanthropist and Businessman, Rick Kearney, describes a vision of upscale construction similar in quality to homes seen in Southwood of Tallahassee or South Walton. Reports indicate that rent for these homes will start at $400 a month including utilities.
I'm not sure but I never recall it being geared toward homeless. Until you asked and I looked it up, I had no idea it even had a target demo. According to their website there will be a screening process and lists veterans, single parents, low-income university students, persons of disabilities, etc., as example candidates.
It also says it's not for the homeless and that it's separate from the Kearney Center/homeless shelter.
The website also says $400/month, but a somewhat recent Democrat article says $700.
