More Micro Apartments Planned for Downtown

A developer of so-called “micro living” apartments has a second project planned for downtown Columbus.

Connect Realty LLC’s complex would offer a mix of 34 one-bedroom, studio and “micro” apartments of 300 to 870 square feet of living space, as well as street-level office and storefronts at West Long and South Front streets.

The $11 million proposal would be built under the city’s work-force housing initiative. The key is a $2 million pledge in a city grant mentioned in Mayor Michael Coleman’s State of the City address Thursday.
