2480 Dundas St. W Toronto

Rental of the week: 2480 Dundas Street West

It's nice to know furnace rooms are now considered "funky micro studio" apartments and not just creepy room in your parent's basement.  2480 Dundas St. W Toronto

Not entirely clear how this place has been deemed livable but the decor is actually "funky" to their credit. Then again as the old saying goes: you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. 

2480 Dundas St. W TorontoMicro-apartments, by definition, are between 14 to 32 square meters (48 - 100 square-feet). Sure that meets the bare minimum requirements for living space outlined in the Ontario Human Rights Commission report but usually micro-apartments are specifically designed to be livable. 

They have those cool hidden cupboards and beds that transform into walls or whatever. 

2480 Dundas St. W TorontoThis place has nothing like that. It doesn't even have a full kitchen. It just has a microwave, bar fridge and a sink.

2480 Dundas St. W TorontoAlso please note that the pictures just show two different furniture layouts. One is with a bed, the other is with a futon. You may only pick one of those options. There isn't room for you to have a bed and couch. 

Also in case you weren't convinced that living in small cramped spaces wasn't bad enough, psychologists warn of negative health risks such as substance abuse... And looking at this place I get it.  2480 Dundas St. W Toronto
