COLORADO SPRINGS — A tiny homes project in Colorado Springs now has the green light.

The Colorado Springs City Council unanimously approved plans for an 18-unit complex to be named "Working Fusion at Mill Street."

The complex will be located at the intersection of Sierra Madre and Fountain.

The rent will be $600 a month. City Council President Richar Skorman said it provides young professionals a chance to secure housing.

"It's gonna be something that will help people that go in there to find transitional housing, really affordable housing before they can go into the marketplace. And it'll be great for the marketplace as well," Skorman said.

Five currently standing homes will be demolished to make room for the tiny homes.
