HUB-WIDE—Scott Van Voorhis tosses cold water on an assumption about those paying high apartment rents: "Nor is buying an easy alternative for many renters these days—they may have already gone that route and failed or can't come up with the sterling credit scores and big down payments that are now required." []

BOSTON—While we're mulling micro-apartments smaller than 450-square-feet, San Francisco's mulling something entirely tinier: "At a minimum 150 square feet of living space—220 when you add the bathroom, kitchen and closet—the proposed residences are being hailed as a pivotal option for singles." Best of luck. [L.A. Times]
