Well that was fast. On May 20, the first of 66 prefabricated modules was hoisted into place at 335 East 27th Street, and just over a month later, the micro unit building has topped out. The development is the first ever city-backed apartment building of microdwellings, with all 55 studios measuring 360 square feet or less. The mods were created in a factory at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and now that they are all stacked in place, the building will receive its facade and masonry work.

Each module is structurally independent, and most finishes were installed in the factory, so not much interior work remains at the site. Completion is set for fall. Monadnock Development is developing the building, and nARCHITECTS designed it.

Each modular box is stacked over the one below. Then they are joined internally.

    Well, that is very interesting. It looks like a great way to get as much living space into a small area that you can. Good work! I wonder what the cost per month will be.
