A man in San Francisco wants to end homelessness with these MicroPAD units.

Kennedy promises that the tiny housing units can be manufactured in about a week, and although they are designed as standalone homes, the units can be combined as modular units to compose a 200-unit “apartment building” within a few months. This approach is what Kennedy argues is the most efficient response to the large numbers of city residents currently without homes. For the past few months, the developer has been working hard to show people firsthand how the units work, starting with a demo right in front of his office on Ninth and Mission, a neighborhood with a significant homeless population. While the units may be too expensive for City Hall’s blood (they would cost around $1,000/month each), Kennedy is motivated to push forward with his innovative idea.
