4:31 pm
expensive than typical housing strks yes, it's obviously smaller, the average unit is 160 square feet. we build them and lease them to the city for $1,000 a month. >> the math works in my head but what does the city think about this? >> they are puzzled. they are cautiously enthusiastic but we are just now waiting for our first full scale prototype to show them. when they get a look at it they might be more interested, i think that they are cautiously interested. >> what would that mean, them giving the rights to you and would it be specific for this need? >> yes, say that the city has a parking lot. we could build a concrete podium on top of that and build
4:32 pm
these units on top and give them back their parking. they are using surplus air space to provide housing for the homeless and for supportive services. >> why do you feel that this will work in the city? >> because we can produce thousands of units for half of the cost of conventional construction. we are using all union labor. the units themselves will be manufactured at a factory? >> what is the push back? >> the unions in san francisco want all of the work for themselves. >> can you do that? >> no it messes up our costs. >> if i get the air space, how many do you think you will be
4:33 pm

4:34 pm
we want to make it simple and we provided the financing and we will lease them to the city for $1,000 a month. the city mansion it and decides who will be in them. >> -- manage it and decide who will be in them. >> where do you go from here? >> if need be we can find a site owrsz. >> back to air rights, has that about done before? >> i do not think so. the cities ail have parking lots all over that would be suitable for this. they are underutilized if they are just for cars. >> it will be interesting to sow how this plays out and to
4:35 pm
see what the cities do. >> i hope they do it. we are going to have a full scale model ready in october. the fbi is investigating the stabbing at a shopping mall in minnesota as a terrorist event. the attacker was killed by an offduty police officer. he is being called a hero by his police chief. >> he was put in unfortunate circumstances, i believe it was divine intervention. he was the person that needed to be there. >> all of the victims are expected to survive. the attacker has been identified as dahir adan. isis claims he was a soldier of the islam i believe state.
