2,400 Micro-Apartments Planned For Seattle

apartment*Synced from Seattle Luxury Rental Blog
Apodments, or micro-apartments have been trending in Seattle’s rental realm over the past year, with 700 units built in the city limits thus far. These mico units have appealed to the carless city dwellers who can fit the majority of their belongings in a 100-185 sf space. According to the Seattle Pi, that is roughly the size of a city parking space.
An estimated 2,400 additional units are in the works for the city of Seattle, in different stages of planning and permitting. The growing popularity of these units has caused a debate over whether these units are opening up opportunities for more affordable housing, or if they’re causing a surplus of tenants to migrate into already crowded neighborhoods. Seattle micro-units generally range from 100-185 sf, cost around $660/month, and usually a private bathroom, but many do not have kitchens or full kitchens.
