My Micro NY

The adAPT NYC Competition, devised by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, M.B.A. ’66, spurred designs for attractive and affordable apartments from 250 to 370 square feet in size. Taitem is providing commissioning services for the project winners, called “My Micro NY” (MMNY). Their proposed housing project features 55 studio apartments, each smaller than a typical two-car garage. Now slated to become one of the first modular-unit projects in Manhattan, the apartments will be prefabricated in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and shipped overnight to a site on East 27th Street, where they will be stacked atop each other like Lego® bricks.
