After years of bitter back-and-forth with resistant neighbors, the newly elected San Jose City Council pushed ahead with a project to house formerly homeless people southeast of Willow Glen in converted shipping containers.
The council approved a rezoning request that will allow the containers to be placed and turned into 60 permanent supportive housing units on Evans Lane near Canoas Gardens Ave.
The price tag? Some $600,000 per unit, or $2,500 per square foot, according to Rachel VanderVeen, a deputy director in the city’s Housing Department.
