YOU TELL US: A Microunit Revolution?
Tiny apartment units are popping up all over, already making waves in cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, New York City, Boston, and DC. Developers say they're the perfect abode for Millennials and people who land in cities with a suitcase, laptop, iPhone, and not much else (your dreams don't need much space), and projects being built are getting gobbled up fast. But naysayers foresee a backlash against the small units, arguing the cost to custom-build a livable unit makes it not such an affordable proposition.
