The organization Habitat for Humanity is constructing an affordable housing home in Tempe, Arizona. The new three-bedroom two-bath single-family house will have more than 1,700 square feet of livable space and be constructed using 3D printing as well as traditional construction methods to make it cost-effective and innovative moving forward according to the city.
Tempe is known for innovation and this ground-breaking project aligns perfectly with our goal to identify new solutions that accelerate the growth of affordable and workforce housing in our city,” said Tempe Mayor Corey Woods in a statement. “Working with valued partners, we want to ensure that everyone who wants to live in Tempe can do so. Beyond our city borders, this project can serve as a model for other communities as we all work to meet the critical needs of families who truly are the faces of this growing housing affordability crisis.”
