these buildings average 17 suites at 9 square metres each (plus sleeping loft).
Since the brand was launched in 2014, they have developed over 70 buildings and now manage about 1,200 micro apartments across the central wards of Tokyo (~17 units per project if you do the math). We are talking about apartments in the range of 9 square meters (plus sleeping loft) for somewhere around ¥75,000 ($965 CDN) per month.
Not surprisingly, their projects seem to lease up right away. And supposedly there’s a long wait list for future projects. People are clearly looking for affordable housing in the neighborhoods in which they want to live. It’s about lifestyle and location, and living a large portion of your life within the public domain.
so that's tokyo. i bet these could be built here, on almost any lot where they'd fit in just fine, and rent for $500 to $700.
