One in a million

Other regions of the world, such as Europe, are much further along than the US in meeting the growing demand for micro-housing; for instances, see coliving.com and colivme.com.

So far we’ve discovered only three other US communities remotely like the one I live in: offering furnished rooms with private bathrooms, serving chef-prepared meals every day, affordable to those of modest means, open to all ages (not just students or senior citizens, the only populations for which microhousing is well known and accepted), and allowing long-term residents.

  1. Kenmore Hotel, San Francisco
  2. Monroe Residence Club, San Francisco
  3. Webster Apartments, New York City (for women only; five-year maximum stay)

Know of any others? Let us know in the comments!

ETA 10.3.19: We’ve since learned of The Center at Ananda Laurelwood, a unique community with 150 rooms, in a former Seventh-Day Adventist school, on 175 acres in rural Oregon, and will be going to check it out next week. Stay tuned!
