Chandler’s Affordable Housing Project Stalls as the Need for Housing Grows

Chandler’s latest public housing project, Villas on McQueen, faces construction delays amid funding challenges, exacerbating the city’s critical shortage of affordable housing. With 11,300 affordable units needed for families seeking homes below $1,250 per month, the urgency is palpable. Once completed, Villas on McQueen will offer 78 project-based housing units and 79 low-income housing tax credit units, benefiting low-income families, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. However, as the project nears buildout, Chandler faces a significant challenge: only 6% of undeveloped land remains, with a mere 2% allocated for housing and the majority reserved for economic development.
