250 square feet. for an older single person it's an interesting option. when you're in nyc, the city itself is your target of interests. everything you need is in a 5 mile radius. for me, i'd prefer to sink 200k into that instead of a house in the suburbs of ft. worth, texas.

for the naysayers, if people didn't want to live there, the apartments would cost what a typical dingbat apartment costs anywhere else in the country.

Really...you call that living? Never mind about the ridiculous prices. I guess that's what you get in the "rotten apple".

Actually, there is absolutely nothing "amazing" about these apartments at all except the hype. They are all pathetic and like small prison quarters. You see, the real estate industry could build dormitories, or SROs (single room occupancy) or hotels and let people who wanted that small a space rent it.  BUT, NO, they are out to change the minimum legal size for an apartment so that they can get around tenant protections and what is considered minimally acceptable and healthy for human inhabitance and then they can charge more per square foot, squeeze bigger profits and treat tenants like animals caged for profit.

This is a very wide sales promotion by the real estate lobby and industry to alter the minimum legal apartment size in New York City and elsewhere.  They have the billionaire Mayor, who has several whole houses for himself, behind them and even set up a pr exhibit at The Museum of the City of New York to promote all the joys of cramming into smaller space!  If they can only make them smaller, they say, the apartments will be cheaper and more plentiful!  In fact if they could only set tenants up in refrigerators or coffins and make it sound cool, exciting and profitable, they would! This is a gross scam and should not be promoted on here or anywhere else. Stop real estate greed as it is a parasitical industry and just takes advantage of people utilizing all kinds of government supports: tax write offs, subsidies, abatements and what not, while claiming, naturally, that rents should be uncontrolled and "free market."  Housing is a human necessity and developers, real estate marketers and landlords seek a monopoly to corner markets and charge outrageous prices.

I'd like to see what kind of ideas they have for smaller square footage homes.  I love my house, but I know it could be set up much more efficiently and more fun.

I would like a house with NO (or very little) horizontal spaces that keep catching clutter !

I'd quickly give up a dishwasher for cupboard space. And a stove--where is the cook top and at least two burners.  Then again, I lived without a stove for about six months, feeding husband and three boys with a roaster oven and electric fry pan.

After being married 20+ years and raising 3 kids through college, these boxes could not hold all my junk that I have accumulated. That being said, if I was young and single again, I would love to live in some of these spaces. They have more room than my dorm in college and more personal space than the barracks when I was in the Army. As long as I had a place for my tv, stereo, a place to cook, and room to entertain the occasional member of the opposite sex that came over, I was happy.

What a sad commentary on the prospects for the future in this country.  So now all the komrades are to be boxed in shoeboxes and even convince themselves this is a good thing.  Sad, so sad.

The more space the more junk (AKA, crap). If you can not use it, look at it, enjoy it, consume it, you do not need it. If it does not satisfy need, provide a necesary function, or bring speical pleasure you do not need it.

The eternal question - when you go to a hotel to sleep - HOW BIG is it? If you use space for a "kitchen/bathroom{always huge in a hotel} and stairs for storage - You can spend weeks there - If you need to "hold on to "stuff" forever - well - buy a large home for storage.  I can live for two weeks - and have in a tent carrying what I need - if you need to have All that STUFF - pay for it and store it - and then sell it at a yard sale

I have a 1800 sq-ft house on an acre of land. Didn't pay any where near what the asking prices on these closets are.
