Meet the Tiny Future of NYC Living

January 22, 2013 | Andy Cush

This morning, we told you Mayor Bloomberg was set to unveil the winner of a contest to design a 300-square-foot apartment that would serve as a small-centric pilot for the future of NYC living. The winners, Monadnock Development, Actors Fund Housing Development Corp, and nARCHITECTS, presented the renderings above.

They’ll be building 55 apartments in a city-owned space at East 27th Street, each of which will be expected to rent at between $940 and $1,800 per month. Each unit will have 10-foot ceilings, a small balcony, and two vaguely-named “zones”: a “toolbox” (bathroom and kitchen), and a “cavas” (living and sleeping space). Check out a few more utopian images in the gallery.
