What is a "Micro Suite"? Think Small. Really Small.

A new breed of so-called "micro-lofts," some as small as the size of two parking spaces, are being hailed as a small solution to some of Vancouver's biggest housing problems.

 

Ranging from 226 to 291 sq. feet, the units, located in the once-condemned Burns Block building on West Hastings Street, are compact and clever living spaces that are the smallest rental units in the country.

 

Furnished with built-in tables, Murphy bed, flat-screen TV with free cable, and a galley-style washroom, the heritage units rent for around $800 a month. The three-piece bathroom has a showerhead installed directly above the toilet to save space.
