Seattle-based startup Blokable is hoping to change the way affordable housing is developed, using a new approach to design and technology.

The company recently delivered its first unit to land donated by the Edmonds Lutheran Church, reports Geekwire. It’s part of a co-project with the Seattle-based Compass Housing Alliance that will see the creation of a three-story complex with 70 units.

“We talk a lot about homelessness on this show, but we don’t spend a lot of time on success stories,” said KIRO Radio’s Ron Upshaw. “This is a success story from the private sector, not the public sector.”
