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