Shoebox living is a trend making its way across the globe—whether it’s a converted grain silo, a 3D printed house, or a modular DIY project, it seems tiny apartments, homes, and houses are here to stay. This more-sustainable lifestyle appeals to all age groups, economic sectors, and sustainability goals (living on or off the grid), and options from DIY with a screwdriver to pre-assembled under $10k abound.

Built in 1898, Providence Arcade (a National Historic Landmark) in Providence, RI, is getting a makeover and getting on the bandwagon. Evan Granoff, a developer, bought the mall in 2005 and began turning the upper level into micro-apartments situated above the ground level, which once again houses businesses. Mirco isn’t just a label though, these tiny dwellings are just 225 square feet, but at $550/mo, there is a waiting list for the apartments.
