New York Abuzz About Prefab

The popular New York real estate website Curbed picked up on a story about a prefab box that appeared recently in New York magazine and the Wall Street Journal. The 320-square-foot home in NYC’s West Village costs just $39.5K, a price that barely represents the cost of a parking space in much of the city. Designed from a shipping container by MEKA Luxury Modular Homes in the U.S., the home was fashioned in Eastern China and assembled onsite in just five days. The home features bamboo flooring and glass picture windows. The Wall Street Journal notes the site is only temporary and the company wants the homes to be thought of not as a house, but as a luxury product. One reader left a comment on New York magazine’s website saying the homes are hurricane-proof, earthquake-proof, fire-proof and exceed all U.S. building codes. Another indicated they can be placed on the roof of a building.
