SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Itsy-bitsy apartments are coming to San Francisco.
The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved legislation allowing construction of hundreds of 220-square-foot apartment units. Building codes had required that living rooms alone be that size.
It makes San Francisco home to some of the smallest apartments in the country.
The micro-apartments include a bathroom, kitchen and closet. Two people will be allowed to live in the tiny apartments, which are expected to fetch $1,300 to $1,500 a month.
The San Francisco Chronicle says they will help those who want to live alone but can't afford most of the studio apartments on the market.
The average studio apartment in the city goes for more than $2,000 a month.
