(NEW YORK) — New York City is getting its first mobile-home apartment building.
Called “The Stack,” this new residential building has 28 apartments formed by 59 modules, creating a collection of individual mobile homes piled on top of each other.
The seven-story apartment building is on the northern tip of Manhattan and is built out of prefabricated rooms– between 625 and 750 square-feet each.
Like mobile homes nationwide, these came to their destination on the back of a truck and got hoisted into place.
Rents start at $1,600 per month for a studio and $3,700 per month for a three-bedroom.
