It’s been four years since Mayor Bloomberg announced a design competition for a Kips Bay rental building that would be entirely composed of micro units. Although other Bloomberg-era initiatives have recently come under fire by the new administration, adAPT NYC isn’t one of ’em. Finally, applications are open for 14 of the 55 studios on the city’s Housing Connect website, reports Brick Underground. There are two different kinds of studios available: 11 studiosasking $950/month are available to singles earning between $34, 526 and $48, 350, or two people earning between $34, 526 and $55, 250.

Thirty-three developers submitted plans for Bloomberg’s 2012 Request for Proposals—including the Durst Organization but the team of Monadnock Development LLC, Actors Fund Housing Development Corporation, and nARCHITECTS won with their design for MyMicroNY, a building composed of 66 prefabricated modules assembled at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

On top of having 55 studios that will range from 260 to 360 square feet, the building at 335 East 27th Street between Second and First avenues will also have, as per Brick Underground, a virtual doorman, bike storage, fitness center, business room, salon, roof terrace, and, for an extra charge, storage lockers.
