Urbanito, located on the corner of Mill Street and Holcomb, has expanded to include a group of at least three tiny homes.
The project is in response to the housing crisis, and the project is described as:
"an affordable housing crisis here in Reno! In response to an overwhelming outcry for a nice home to rent in a great location we have created wee6. An amazing prototype of housing targeting those who can only afford less than $850 month in rent and ALL utilities (including free wifi), yet want their own yard, a safe atmosphere AND a most super cool modern home to live in. Welcome to wee6---six wee size homes to be built at our Urbanito block at Mill and Holcomb"
You can read more about Urbanito and wee6 (cutest name ever for a housing project) by clicking this link, including seeing renderings and a site map layout. I am guessing this will occupy the empty vacant lot just south of Atomik Office Suites and Whipple Distillery, but north of the gorgeous set of bungalow homes Haberae renovated/restored.
Their other tiny home project, Tiny Ten, has sold out, and has a significant waiting list. So any criticism that this is not a desired project in Reno is debatable. You can find out more info about Tiny Ten by clicking here.
