For you minimalist gurus who also relish on-site amenities, there is a now a building for you. Earlier this spring, leasing kicked off for the city’s first micro-housing development, Carmel Place (formerly known as My Micro NY) at 335 East 27th Street. Developed by Monadnock Development and designed by nARCHITECTS, the newly finished no-fee building is a prototype meant to test compact and efficient living arrangements within the city’s tight housing market, as well as accommodate the city’s growing population of one- and two-person households.

Thee leasing team led by Citi-Habitats is offering one month free on all 12- and 24-month leases. According to CityRealty, there are seven micro-studios available ranging from 265 to 360 square feet. Though the units are nearly half the size of typical studio apartments, monthly rents are not analogously micro with current asking prices ranging from $2,570 to $2,920 per month. That’s an average of $110 per square foot, significantly more than $83 per square foot median studio price in Murray Hill and $60 per square foot in Gramercy.

The 120-foot tall, 9-floor structure hosts 55 studios, 22 of which are earmarked as affordable; more than 60,000 micro-hopefuls applied to the housing lottery last fall. Each modular studio residence was pre-fabricated in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and assembled on site by Capsys.

To mitigate the high rents, occupants are benefited by an all-inclusive package of amenities and services curated and managed by “Ollie.” Residences are provided wi-fi, cable, weekly housekeeping service by Hello Alfred, and a Magnises card allowing members to tap into exclusive social events and venues across the city. At an additional cost, a number of suites will offer a full furniture and accessories package for true turn-key living. Other building amenities include a fitness center, residents’ lounge, a communal roof terrace, outdoor grill, den, recreation room, laundry room, tenant’s storage, bike room and a small garden.

Carmel Place is the winning entry from the adAPT NYC competition sponsored by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD). The building is aiming for LEED Silver accreditation and is currently the tallest modular building in the city until the construction of Forest City’s 461 Dean Street wraps up.
