While I agree with smaller homes I do not support micro apartments. I live in a small space that looks and feels like home not a efficiency hotel on highway 492. I feel the divide between those who can afford a comfortable(not excessive) amount of space and those who can't afford any space is increasing rapidly.
I despise bloomburg and his (non) housing policies. He has supported luxury condo housing all over with no thought to neighborhood impact(can you say gentrification) or displacement of longtime residents.
I find it sadly laughable that the square footage
will range from "small as 250 square feet, the largest at 370 square feet"."The development will provide housing for one- and two-person households across a variety of incomes. Around 40 percent of micro-units will be affordable beyond the competitive market rents. These income restricted units will be priced at a rental rate of $940-$1800
I find these "pre fab"(never a good word)cold and soulless and I can guarantee that people's behavior will be restricted even more so no pets, no smoking, no parties or you get kicked out of the "box".
So this makes a healthy society more semi-rich people coming from outside the area, in tighter spaces, who never talk to each other.
