West Hawaii Real Estate | July 20, 2016 9 Everything Wi-Fi, service along with pickup and rate, with rents from $2,446 to $3,195. Another 14 apartments have rents set by affordable-housing programs topping Alfred, nine-story spaces. market out at $1,490 per month; 60,000 people applied for those in a lottery. “In cities, space is at a premium and the only real solution is to make living spaces smaller,” said Lisa Blecker, spokeswoman for Resource Furniture, which provides most of the furniture included in the micro-apartment units. The furniture — much of it made by the Italian company Clie — emphasizes slim lines and multifunctionality. The 9-foot-long sofa converts into a queen-size bed. A tiny cube of an ottoman transforms into dining chairs. A slim console table expands to seat 10. Although the pieces are pricy — Resource Furniture’s Swing wallsofa bed surrounded by cabinets costs between $10,000 and $15,000 — Blecker says clients see savings in housing costs and “the realization that 350 square feet can feel luxurious if it’s well designed with the right furniture.” Bledsoe said micro-apartments’ convenience and affordability can be particularly appealing to young singles, empty nesters, long-distance commuters, and baby boomers in transition or looking for an urban pied-a-terre. Of course, tiny apartments in New York are not exactly new. Veteran appraiser Jonathan Miller estimates there are about 3,000 older apartments citywide that measure less than 400 square feet. And some real estate agents say New York’s young professionals are increasingly seeking small studios, willing to sacrifice space to be near work and away from roommates. Cities from San Francisco to Boston have OK’d some microapartments in recent years, seeking to address housing squeezes. WHITE SANDS VILLAGE THINKING ABOUT SELLING?
