We knew this day was quickly approaching; just a couple of months ago, we reported that My Micro NY (also known as Carmel Place), the city’s first micro apartment complex, was fully stacked, reaching its 120-foot height at 335 East 27th Street on the border of Gramercy and Kips Bay. Now, Brick Underground reports that the $17 million development began accepting applications this morning for its 260- to 360-square-foot affordable studios. According to the site, the available units are “11 $950/month studios for one person earning between $34,526 and $48,350, or two people making between $34,526 and $55,250; and three $1,492/month studios for one person making between $53,109 and $78,650, or two people making between $53,109 and $89,830.”

In total, My Micro NY will have 55 studios, 22 of which will be affordable. The other 33 units will go for around $3,000/month. Meet the income requirements for the affordable units and think these tiny apartments are worth their not-so-tiny price tags? You’ll need to create an account on NYC Housing Connect, the city’s affordable housing portal (find out how to go about that here), to apply. As we previously reported:

Each apartment will come with a full-depth closet, lofted storage, a kitchenette, a refrigerator, fold-down table/counter, full-height pull-out pantry, a range, and room for a convection microwave, and an 18-inch dishwasher. Though small by footprint, ceilings of just over nine-and-a-half-feet, a Juliet balcony, and large windows create the feeling of a unit far bigger. The complex will also provide a rooftop deck and communal spaces like a gym and rec room for residents to enjoy.

My Micro NY was conceptualized by former Mayor Bloomberg in 2012 as a micro-dwelling design competition to see if these small spaces could help solve the city’s housing shortage. The winning and built design is courtesy of nARCHITECTS.
