It took just about one month to fully stack New York City‘s first modular, micro-unit housing complex. The nARCHITECTS-designed building, known as Carmel Place is located on Manhattan’s East Side and offers 55 apartments that range between 260 and 360 square feet. You might remember that the project won Michael Bloomberg‘s adAPT NYC Competition back in 2013.

Field Condition has been visiting Carmel Place over the last month, and recently reported that every one of the building’s 66 modules has been set into place. Now that all of the modules are stacked, on-site facade installation is expected to begin. The entire project should wrap up by the end of the year.
