In the Bay Area, the epicenter of micro unit development is San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood; however, projects that feature sub 400-square-foot studios are now rising up in the Silicon Valley. In Sunnyvale, a 58-unit micro development recently reached completion. Featuring 370-square-foot studios, the project is said to be the first tax credit-financed, modular-built workforce housing project in Northern California.
