Affordable Apartment Complex
Due to a change in zoning laws, an abandoned property that was slated for six homes was turned into 25 affordable apartments. This change of plans has provided low-income families with a place to live.
The design was well thought out. Instead of just cramming as many apartments together in one space, the architects and developers created a nice space with a nice courtyard for interaction with other tenants, a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, and a place for kids to play without being on the street.
The complex was built by stacking and connecting modular units together. They range in size from 375 square foot one-bedroom apartment to 875 square foot four bedroom apartment.
I like to hear stories about well-thought places for people that would normally not be able to afford to live in decent housing. These places look like the perfect solution to help those in need. I wish more urban (and rural) communities would take note of what these developes have done.

They call these micro apartments; I call it a micro village with purpose.
