Urban living at a bargain price, but how small is too small?
Boston Globe - 02/02/2018
Urban rooming houses for single working men and women were once the norm in the United States. Boston, like many other US cities, long ago banned tiny apartments. But some housing experts, policy makers, and entrepreneurs are seeking to ease those rules to accommodate microunits and co-living systems. In a modern spin on communal housing, the Northeastern University professor Barry Bluestone has urged the creation of “millennial villages,” complexes in which small individual apartments would share a common kitchen.
