Housing crisis as 800,000 shortfall of homes for New Yorkers

 

For New Yorkers, the search for affordable - and bearable - apartments is an ongoing struggle.

 

However city-dwellers were given some good news today with the announcement of plans to build a block of economically-friendly, micro-apartments where renters will inhabit under 400 square feet.

 

The 55 new units are planned for East 27th Street in Manhattan - with 40 per cent of homes available to low and middle-income New Yorkers. The first residents are expected to move in September 2015.

 

The project, which was viewed by Mayor Bloomberg today, will be the first apartment building in New York where units are constructed off-site and then fitted together.
