More Micro-Apartments! City Seeking Developers For New Sites
New York’s first micro-apartment building hasn’t even broken ground yet, but the city is already planning more. At a luncheon hosted by the Citizens Housing Planning Council today, Department of Housing Preservation and Development Commissioner Matthew Wambua announced that new requests for proposals will be issued for more micro-apartment sites.
“We are considering RFPs for two or three micro-unit developments later this year,” a HPD spokesman told The Observer after the event. “We’re in the process of vetting a number of city-owned sites, and RFP guidelines will be tailored to the chosen sites.”
