8. Affordable Transitional Micro-housing

8. Affordable Transitional Micro-housing

25 North Polk Street

Following on the success of Opportunity Village, a transitional shelter for homeless members of the community, SquareOne Villages is creating a second sustainable, micro-housing community: Emerald Village Eugene. Emerald Village will create a more accessible place for low and very low income households to transition to permanent, affordable housing without dependence on public support such as Section 8. In addition, residents of Emerald Village will be shareholders in a self-governed co-op, owning a share of their own housing. Emerald Village is funded by generous donations from community members, 13 homes donated by design/build teams, and grants from foundations: EWEB (for exterior lighting) and the City of Eugene (for system development charges). 


  • 22 tiny houses, each between 160 - 288 sq. ft.
  • Full bath and kitchenette in each unit
  • Monthly payments range from $250 to $350, including the share payment and utilities
  • Community building and gardens
  • Future plans for a food cart pod and office space for SquareOne Villages

*Please do not visit the sites before 10 a.m. on Sunday.
