Extreme tiny homes are all the buzz these days. 

Eco-friendly, small homes are making headway into media, TV shows and larger and larger cities. New York has a micro apartment program and Chicago is poised to build on the micro living trend in Logan Square.

So, as apartment development continues to grow in and around greater Downtown Milwaukee when will the micro apartment craze hit here? 

It is appealing, isn't it?  Less space, less stuff and less cash for rent. 

Where would these tiny, cool, micro apartments work in Milwaukee? Would you live in one? 

Chime in, and let's start building on this trend here in Milwaukee.
