BOSTON (CBS) – Plentiful, affordable housing in Boston, sounds like a pipe dream.
Tonight there’s a new plan to make that dream come true.
Twenty-three-year-old Mary DesBois was thinking about moving out of Boston but now has found a way to stay.
“I am actually moving to a micro-unit in East Boston on Saturday. It is just over 500 square feet,” DeBois said.
That’s right, a micro-unit and they are popping up everywhere.
Students at Suffolk University have assembled a mock micro-unit at the Modern Theater on Washington Street. It is only 350 square feet but may be the future of Boston housing.
