Fear not, Millennial minimalists. The Board of Zoning Adjustment has finally approved SB-Urban’s 121-unit project at 90 and 91 Blagden Alley, reports Urban Turf. The micro unit developer had already received approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board, but experienced some resistance because it comes with no parking. So, SB-Urban changed the project’s address to make sure its residents wouldn’t be eligible for residential parking permits. It also plans to offer bikeshare and carshare memberships, to eliminate the need for cars. The Hickok Cole-designed project features furnished units for the Millennial with little more than a suitcase and a laptop. Leases are expected to be in the seven- to eight-month range, with a minimum of 90 days. So basically, it’s urban living for young people with commitment issues.
