Watch New York's First Prefab Micro-Unit Building Get Stacked

New, 4 comments

Construction is well underway at 335 East 27th Street, the city-backed micro unit building known, somewhat unfortunately, as My Micro NY. As since the units for the building—designed by nARCHITECTS and developed by Monadnock Development—were prefabricated at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, construction means that the modules are simply lifted up and placed on top of the other ones, at a rate of one every 15 minutes according to Treehugger, who have a video of one of the units being placed.
