Jordan March, Director of Sales at Mirador, recently shared his expertise when it came to finding apartments with flexible layouts. Considering high housing prices, this is an especially useful hack for creating more rooms in a smaller space.
March tells Brick Underground that while some buildings can be “skittish about alterations,” prewar buildings tend to be more lenient space-wise.
It’s worth noting that creating extra space is not as simple as putting up a wall. Residents must consider window placement, for one. "If you're cutting up the space, you need light," March explains. For example, a corner unit is an ideal layout that can be flexed. A unit with multiple exposures would also ensure light in each room. He also warns of ads that suggest alternative layouts, but are sometimes misleading.
