Layout of a micro-apartment. From the office of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Last week, UrbanTurf conducted a poll to find out whether or not our readers would be willing to live in a studio with a 275 square-foot floorplan, similar to those that Mayor Bloomberg is trying to bring to New York City.
The results? A clear majority, 61 percent, indicated that they would be willing to live in living quarters that small. After publishing the poll, one of our readers clued us in to a plan that would have brought units of that size to our city. The plans were scratched, but with these results, perhaps we’ll see something similar to what New York has in the works sooner rather than later.
