It could be the start of a new reality-television series: Call it “Big City, Small Condos.”

Two Vancouver property firms are expected to formally announce Monday the million-dollar creation of 30 so-called “micro-lofts” in the Downtown Eastside.

At approximately 270 sq. ft. — about the size of two municipal parking spaces — the market rental units will be the smallest in the city.

Reliance Properties Ltd. and ITC Construction Group (builders of the Woodward’s project) are behind the project, part of the redevelopment of the historic six-storey Burns Block at 18 West Hastings.
