The New Living Revolution Micro Apartments

The Carmel Place NYC

The Apartment Aesthetics are amazing and very Comfortable

We’ve heard a lot about Carmel Place, New York City’s micro-apartment building, in the past few years. I recently was able to get a preview tour of the finished project.
The Interior Design is gorgeous and supper functional .
Location is in a Great area :Carmel Place, at 335 East 27th Street.
The apartments have neutral, pallets with a minimalistic style with lots of white and shades of grey.
The Lifestyle Brand is called Ollie.
The essence of Ollie’s Properties is to bring micro studios to the market and eliminate all the hassles and conveniences that come with that.
Designed by nARCHITECTS, the project is the first micro units apartment building in New York and consists of 55 studio apartments for both market rate and affordable tenants. Each apartment is one module, offering 260 to 360 square feet of space. All modules were fabricated at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
While it may have garnered some controversy for its price tag (although 40% of the 55 apartments are affordable, market-rate rents start at $2,600 a month), Carmel Place is an extraordinary accomplishment for its design, modular construction.

 The Transition®

Being able to land and drive not only solves the “last mile problem” but inclement weather will no longer stop your trip. Running on premium unleaded automotive gasoline, the same engine powers the propeller in flight or the rear wheels on the ground. Converting between flight and drive modes is comparable to putting down the top on your convertible and you can keep the Transition® at home in the garage: flying has never been so convenient! 
Inventors around the world have been trying to combine the ease and utility of driving with the three-dimensional freedom of flying since the beginning of the 20th century. The “flying car” has become a pop icon of the dream that never quite comes true. Until now. Terrafugia intends to be the company that catalyzes the creation of a flying car industry.

Their first product, the Transition® is a two-place, fixed wing, street legal airplane which has been internationally heralded as the “first practical flying car”. It is designed to fit in a single car garage, be safely driven on the highway, and be flown in and out of general aviation airports. It brings a new level of freedom, flexibility and fun to personal aviation and you can reserve yours today.

As magazines loose ad pages and newspapers go bankrupt,TV Shows get poor content.The Internet is leading the way as the most powerful vehicle for news and information delivery of the future. The internet is already a powerful tool for writers, photographers,designers,etc .You can watch television shows for free, get up to celebrity gossip,what to wear or not to wear, get breaking News on your mobile phone from CNN.Designers are inspired by blogs, bloggers and street style.Some people even wonder if Blogs will replace websites or take jobs away from graphic and web designers.The self published blog, which is typically updated more often than websites, is clearly the New Darling of the this internet decade.
