Even King was initially shocked by the size of the apartment he rented near downtown, roughly the size of large parking spot. Cities such as San Francisco, New York and Boston have been encouraging tiny apartments to cater to young workers, retirees others who prefer city dwelling, singles or students. San Francisco last fall approved construction of apartments as small as 220 square feet, while Boston has approved 300 new units as small as 375 sq. feet. But in Seattle, where city codes have allowed for even smaller micro-apartments and dozens have been built in the last five years, the trend is facing a backlash from some neighbors who are pushing for a building moratorium or for them to be more adequately regulated.
