Seattle’s micro-apartment units criticized

StaffPuget Sound Business Journal

The building of tiny, 200-square-foot apartments in Seattle is being criticized by some residents who fear developers are skirting the city’s residential construction rules.

The Seattle Times reports that builders of the tiny apartments, called aPodments, are getting around city rules that count the number of kitchens, and not bed spaces, when developing new complexes.

Because the tiny aPodments use shared kitchens, some projects are avoiding design and environmental reviews, and opponents want a moratorium on the tiny housing.
