Fancy an apartment the size of a Tesla Model X?  That’s about 161 square feet — and the size of a Hong Kong micro-apartment sold by property giant Henderson Land Development Co. for just less than $500,000. An actual Tesla Model X in Hong Kong starts at around $150,000.

HONG KONG'S residents, already accustomed to expensive, crowded spaces, learnt a new term in 2016 - the nano flat, apartments that measure less than 200 sq ft (18.5 square meters), including a bathroom.

What’s it like to live in a space that’s smaller than a standard car park space? That’s quite literally a multi-million dollar question, as these apartments don’t come cheap. Developers completed 206 units of these apartments last year, tripling the supply from 2013.
