Duplex Delight

A story that ran in the New York Times yesterday checks in on the duplex craze in New York apartments. "Stairs create separation," says the article. "Stairs take up space. Stairs mean work." The trend is not unique to NYC; here in Chicago, some developments that include only duplex units have come to the market in recent years. As the Times story notes, duplexes are especially common on the ground floor and lower level, because below-grade floor space is usually cheaper. [New York Times]
