Daylight Homeless Center Austin

Forsite has proposed an adaptive reuse of a former big box store into a campus facility for the unhoused. The Daylight Homeless Center is outfitted with cargo containers to create micro living units, the 400 unit facility would allow verdant, communal spaces with ample natural light within a safe, secure, and durable environment. An anticipated unit cost of $12,000 would provide significantly better return on investment than current strategies.

The 20 acre site in central Austin, Texas would accommodate support services: medical clinic, skill training, and counseling services, in proximity to the living units.
