Units At 49-Story Mana Tower Will Be Micro-Sized

Units At 49-Story Mana Tower Will Be Micro-Sized

Most units at Moishe Mana’s proposed 200 North Miami Avenue project will be smaller than 500 square feet, Andres Viglucci points out.

Units will be so small that they won’t be equipped with a full kitchen. Renters will have access to a shared common kitchen when they have guests.

The penthouse will be 600 square feet.

Apartments will be equipped with built-in furniture that folds and slides into walls.

Assuming an average price of $2.25 per square foot, units would rent for $900 per month.

Zyscovich is the architect. The 328-unit project is set for UDRB review today.

Interesting. Affordable for the Downtown workforce.. Would love to see the build in furniture and cabinetry plans they have.

Great outside the box thinking for this area.

Possibly this cycle’s biggest steps towards metropolitan living

I’m sure this will accommodate the lifestyle of many young people and will give some the chance to live in the urban core at a very affordable rate.

Having lived in Miami Beach and NY for many years, 400-500sqft is not particularly “micro” to me, especially if laid out well. With big windows and good common areas that residents may actually wan tot use, those sizes will be attractive ESPECIALLY at $900 a month, which is a crazy good price. I love this. The design isn’t my taste exactly but I like how crazy it is. More of this.

It sits right next to the Miami foundation building.

If you want to see the backwards thinking of most Miami-ans look at this discussion thread:

Reddit is a mostly young, white website so the posters there are disproportionately not-native Miamians. The typical user there moved here recently from Ohio and gets aggravated when they hear spanish spoken in their presence. They are under/unemployed and it’s Miami’s fault that a fortune hasn’t fallen onto their laps. They have trouble meeting people in Miami with similar interests because they’re used to living in places where everyone is just like them. To be a bit kinder, I think a lot of them move to Miami not realizing that it’s kind of an expat community. There are lots of enclaves where people associate based on where they came from.

If you don’t know what to expect there you’ll find yourself overwhelmed by the casual racism of that subreddit.

Now if only pay rates in Miami can be higher.. hmmmm. Maybe raise the minimum wage in Miami? This seriously needs to be considered. They are doing it in other cities like Seattle.

Developers and architects job is not to change society, but I would say this in a sense is surely a step forward for ours.

Great idea, but could it be any uglier looking?

I guess you’re the type who prefers stucco. Now that’s ugly.
