Infill shipping container apartments proposed in Glendale

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

A housing nonprofit wants to build an infill apartment project in Glendale using shipping containers.

Family Promise wants to build a six-unit affordable housing complex on a vacant plot near 60th Avenue and Rose Lane.

The Glendale City Council is scheduled to look at the shipping container apartment during an upcoming Aug. 23 workshop.

Family Promise specializes in affordable housing for families with children and the new apartments will be geared toward tenants making 80% or less of the local median income.

Family Promise also operates the Belleview Family Day Center in Scottsdale. That is a five-unit transitional housing complex near McDowell Road and Scottsdale Road.

The Glendale apartments require approval from the city for the use of the shipping containers and the minimal painting proposed of the structures.

The infill project totals 18,000 square feet and will feature two-bedroom, 640-square-foot units.

New and repurposed shipping containers have been used for some infill and affordable housing projects in Phoenix and other cities.

The Valley has significant rises in rents and housing costs. The Arizona Department of Housing estimates the state needs 270,000 new more affordable housing units to keep up with demand and population growth.
