Living micro: Single residents embrace tiny apartments



Transcript:
Quote SHAWN GROFF: It’s about 260 square feet… and everything is really compact, it’s gotta be multifunctional…

MONA ISKANDER: Shawn Groff is a 26-year-old employee at Whole Foods, who lives in a building that consists solely of what are known as micro-apartments.

SHAWN GROFF:  We’re standing in every room, we’re standing in my kitchen, living room, dining room and my bathroom is just around the corner.

The table comes up….

MONA ISKANDER: His dining room table is also… his bed. For about $950 a month, he learns to make do with his 260 square foot space.

SHAWN GROFF: If I have company and I need another chair, I can use my coffee table again and maybe even pat it down and they can enjoy as well.

Video notes:

• Tiny Apartments in major cities bring in a younger demographic to areas of the city they'd other wise be priced out of.

• Opponents feel like these micro apartments are targeting the wrong people and displacing locals.

• Opponents feel like these micro apartments ruin community dynamics.

• White lady feels like this is important for a growing population and the ideas from these units and furniture build outs can be used for other struggling neighborhoods.


Could you live in 400sqft?

if I lived alone, I probably could. I'd feel safer for some reason. Like I could know what was going on in all rooms at all times lol.

It's really not that much different to live in NY.

I actually think I could.

No room for my clothes and shoes tho...

It could work for me tho. I don't intend to have a family and I don't like people visiting.

ETA: not for $950 tho. Hell naw!

I lived like this in Brazil and I do take a minimalist approach. Too many things make my mind feel cluttered. Makes traveling easy too. I don't see a reason for a lot of space unless u have a family.
