I thought that it didn't look too bad--and that's when my late-night brain registered that there are twenty pods in that one room. Each jail bed tiny pod starts at the low price of $1,000 per month. What a dark and depressing way to live.
Chris Elsey of Manhattan, Kansas-based Elsey Partners is planning to erect two apartment buildings on the site of current parking lots at 1500 15th St. and 401 S. Van Ness Ave. in the city’s trendy Mission District. Each would include 88 windowless “sleeping pods” located underground.
Residents could expect to pay between $1,000 and $1,375 a month for the privilege of bunking down in one of the pods, which measure just 50 square feet each.
