Rising rent and living costs have outpaced earning capacity in many major cities, making those areas unaffordable for the urban professionals who work there. As a result, many developers in these cities have begun offering “micro apartments”as a solution. These are tiny apartments, often less than 400 sq feet, that some people are willing to live in as a means to reside in the city they love. They’re willing to sacrifice space to live in a thriving community. These micro flats are also great for the environment, as they save a great deal on energy with such a small living space and also allow people to avoid making long commutes.
