spaces in tiny
275-300 sq. ft
The latest apartment trend in big cities, for both developers and residents,
are smaller spaces at smaller costs. “Micro” apartments, built in cities
where space is at a premium, are efficient living spaces that measure
around 275-300 square feet.
The rise of these apartments comes from the need for compact
living spaces in crowded cities, like New York City, San Francisco
and Boston. These apartments are the perfect places for single
dwellers on a budget.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg even held a citysponsored competition – adAPT NYC – to challenge developers
into designing micro apartments (being no greater than 400 square
feet) that are innovative as well as comfortable for residents.
More impressively is the amount of
amenities packed into these tiny spaces.
Many units include a washer/dryer, high
ceilings and multipurpose storage. Keep
an eye out for these micro apartments, as
well as a demand for traditional studio and
one-bedroom apartments, in 2013.
