Mini-Apartments Coming to San Francisco

With apartments being planned in San Francisco that will be 300 square feet and less, apartment ads are going to read like this:

WANTED: Single occupant who is extremely organized and doesn’t mind building massive calluses on his or her shoulders due to constant rubbing against walls.

 

The tiny apartments are touted as "affordable by design."

New York City has launched a pilot project to test them out. Boston is doing it too. But here in San Francisco, where a growing number of residents are being priced out of the housing market by a revived tech economy, city leaders are considering the smallest micro-units of all.

At a minimum 150 square feet of living space — 220 when you add the bathroom, kitchen and closet — the proposed residences are being hailed as a pivotal option for singles.
