A Look Inside NYC’s First Micro-Unit Apartment Building

In 2013, the Museum of the City of New York unveiled the future of housing in NYC. That vision has finally arrived with Carmel Place in Kips Bay, the first micro-unit apartment building in the city. Built using modular construction, individual steel-framed modules are stacked to create each residential unit.

Apartments range from 260-360 sq. ft. and although the apartments are micro, the prices are not. At the time of the first leasing, a second floor furnished unit was listed at $2,910 per month. Some units were listed as high as $3,150. The lowest-priced unit was listed at $2,540 per month while “affordable” units ranged from $914 to $1,873 per month.

Each unit is equipped with space-saving furniture such as the Mondial coffee table, which can be converted into a dining table, and the Penelope Sofa, which is also a Murphy bed.

If your space gets too cramped, there’s always the rooftop terrace, workout area, and lounge.
