The owner of the Historic Core's United Building at 7th and Broadway wants to create 155 baby-size live/work units, reports blogdowntown. How baby-sized? The tiniest could be 304 square feet, with the largest being 1,000 square feet; the average unit would clock in at 494 square feet. If you recall, in an effort to increase density, the city passed new planning rules allowing small living units, some as mini as 250 square feet. If the United's small homes sound like hotel rooms, you're not alone—building owner Ezat Delijani considered turning the 12-story 1921 stunner into a boutique hotel. Currently occupying the building are—surprise, surprise—jewelry manufacturers and an old theatre that's now a church.
