Micro Apartment Complexes in Los Angeles

What we are seeing more of is the new trend in ‘Micro Apartment’ living. Put simply, a Micro Apartment is a flash, but small apartment to live in that substitutes all that extra space you don’t need in exchange for cheaper rent in a good part of town, as well as cool amenities and features.

New York has just started leasing the first Micro Apartments in the City in November 2015. We all know that New York was already famous for its tiny 1 bedroom apartments or flats, but now it seems as though they weren’t quite small enough, and now has emerged this new trend of ‘shoebox living’ and it is actually quite well received.

The trend has also now found its way to Los Angeles. You know, that place that is where the trendsetters actually hang out! As we all know, it ain’t a trend unless it’s in LA, and Micro-Apartment complexes have definitely found their way to Tinsel town. However, unlike other cities which are offering microflats as a way to make living affordable for young urban professionals who are willing to live in small spaces, micro apartments in Los Angeles are being presented at astronomical rather than economical prices. One wonders what the point is of paying 2k a month rent for a 400 square foot apartment when a person could just rent a normal sized dwelling for much cheaper.

Here are some recent additions to the ever-growing list of Micro-Apartment complexes in Los Angeles;


1600 Vine
1600 Vine boasts a courtyard pool, with the apartment sizes beginning from 680 feet @$2687


The Emerson
The Emerson is one of the biggest Miro-Apartment complexes in Los Angeles. The building has a massive 20 floors so you wont be finding it hard making new friends, and you can do this while socialising in either their Gym or a Barbeque pool part. Rooms here starting from 675 square feet @ a great $2595 per month.
