Speaking of modular housing…

I wrote about this last fall – the Inhabit prefab apartment units that can stack. There is an update in today’s paper – Unico Development’s first planned apartment complex on Dexter Avenue North. This is exciting stuff, and if I was a 20-something wanting to live downtown, I’d be standing in line with my holding deposit.

The prefab apartment units are built in Burlington (Skagit County). The units are small, 675 and 480 square feet, and according to plans most of the apartments at the Dexter Avenue project would be 450-square-foot studios or 525-square-foot one-bedroom units. Top units have “green” roofs to treat rainwater runoff, are energy efficient, and have floor-to-ceiling windows. Some floor plans even have decks!
