We didn't know Bloomberg liked his space so tiny!

Mayor Bloomberg just announced New York City’s new adAPT NYC competition, which challenges architects to design a new apartment building in New York comprised entirely of micro-mini units. The new plan seeks to accommodate New York’s booming population by creating affordable homes to meet the needs of single city dwellers. The proposed units would be just 275 to 300 feet large, and they would occupy a city-owned lot on 27th Street in Kips Bay. NYC has always been on the cutting edge when it comes to tiny dwellings, but the competition couldn’t have come at a better time since small space living is so en vogue right now.

    I think the green movement is brnilialt. It was actually an idea brought about by a design student in 2008. He decided it would be a terrific way to unite the country as it is a very accessible color. A new trend is painting your hand green and then going around to various walls, and leaving a green handprint to mark your vote, in a sense. Very cool idea, good to see it being put to use, even with American supporters on Twitter. Great article too!

    I would like to submit a proposal but I will be gone on that date. Is there any way I can do it without being there? I want to buy, not rent. Please let me know. Beverly McCarter

    I think the city can do a better job giving just a few more inches of space. Like an article stated thats almost the size of a prison cell. Not expecting anything too large but give us a break already.
