On your Daily Detroit for Wednesday, February 21st, 2024 – we’re going to talk about a new approach to attainable housing.

After less than a year of planning the first Cass tiny home was recently completed on Elmhurst Street on Detroit’s west side. Today, we got to tour it. Tiny homes for everyone! Ok, that might be an exaggeration, and Oprah wasn’t in town. But in all seriousness, the plan is to have 25 tiny homes for people who qualify for the program.
