NYC's First Micro Apartments Start Leasing Today

There has been much buzz about the experiment in microdwellings under construction in Kips Bay. Now, your chance to rent an apartment there is only days away. Leasing will begin Monday at Carmel Place (formerly My Micro NY) on Monday, the New York Times reports. The building has 55 studios that range from 260 to 360 square feet in size; 14 of the units were designated affordable and are being assigned by lottery and eight more will be given to formerly homeless veterans, but 12 of the market-rate listings will go on the market on Monday. Eight of those will be furnished.
