One thing is sure to get lost in the shuffle of concerns about microapartments on the Hill — people live in these things. This morning, we showed you just how many microhousing projects there actually are around Capitol Hill. Here’s what they look like inside.
Warning: What you are about to see is, well, kind of boring.
But getting there was the interesting part. Our efforts to work with the developers or property managers and get inside one of the open aPodment buildings on the Hill got nowhere fast.
Turned down, we turned instead to an aPodment resident. What we found were small, dorm-like rooms — as messy and cluttered as any other 20-something male’s place on the Hill. The shocking photos are below.
First impressions: The aPodments are, yes, tiny. Roughly the size of a college dorm, maybe even smaller, there’s room for a bed, some clothes, and a bit of storage for your things.
Units average less than 150 square-feet across the various developments. Rents range from $500 to more than $600.
