Tiny Houses on Navaho

The First Tiny Houses Community in Jacksonville

Jacksonville’s first tiny houses community will open on October 29th, 2021 on the Westside of Jacksonville. The 50-home development on just 5.7 acres near Lane Avenue is the city’s first example of houses mostly measuring less than 500 square feet.

The development at Wiley Road and Navaho Avenue was launched last year with a $5.5 million grant from philanthropist Delores Barr Weaver through the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida.

The Tiny Homes, which are being used as transitional housing, will be managed by Jacksonville-based Ability Housing, a nonprofit that operates apartment complexes targeted to people with disabilities or a risk of homelessness. Rent will be based around tenants income.

The “Tiny Houses on Navaho” is built around four courtyards to give those living there a true community feel. There are four home models, each designed as a one-bedroom house for two people. The houses will coming fully furnished with with a living-room area, kitchen, washer & dyer, and queen sized bed.
