New York City’s Future Micro-Apartment Revealed

Eager to jump on the living solo/living small trend, the city launched its adAPT NYC competition last summer, seeking proposals for micro units to fill a building at 335 East 27th Street. Mayor Bloomberg announced the winner this morning, and the judges have chosen…the team of Monadnock Development LLC, Actors Fund Housing Development Corporation, and nARCHITECTS. The units—the building will have 55 apartments, 40 percent of them affordable—will range from 250 to 370 square feet, with nine- to 10-foot ceilings and Juliette balconies. The design is meant to accommodate NYC’s growing number of one- and two-person households, and the small unit size means that some amenities that might ordinarily be located within an apartment will be common spaces, instead.
