BERKELEY (KPIX) – A Berkeley artist and activist has come up with a novel idea that would not only recycle old BART cars, it would add options to the tight Bay Area housing market.
Alfred Twu posted renderings of his so-called ‘aBARTments’ on Twitter and has received mostly positive reactions.
The cars are stacked atop one another and connected by a central stairway and elevators. Twu even shows how spacious the interiors could be for living space.
Twu said each BART car would make a nice two-bedroom apartment.
BART tweeted that its board will discuss the idea when it meets on Thursday.
