Two tiny homes last week arrived in downtown Mesa ahead of groundbreaking for an unusual residential project planned to get underway this spring.
ZenniHome, created by SkyMall founder and former state Sen. Bob Worsley, is preparing to stack and lock together prefabricated tiny homes into a 90-unit mid-rise apartment building on Main Street.
Before cranes hoist the homes into place – possibly this summer– the public will have the opportunity to tour two modular homes by appointment at a demonstration site at 29 Robson, next to Cider Corps, in downtown.
ZenniHome’s two models on display are 320 square feet and 640 square feet, respectively.
The company touts its product as a solution for people who want to add a dwelling unit to their property, or developers looking to create multifamily housing on an accelerated timeline.
