It could even be tied in with an impending economic collapse.
A collapse in the economy would have people selling, or at least leaving properties that they can't afford to keep up/pay for and moving closer to any available jobs in an urban area. An efficiency apt would be the cheaper means of housing the typically small family that we see today.
If the economic collapse is a planned one... this would tie in nicely with Agenda 21.

Kitchenettes are a clue. All utility apts. have kitchenettes. Look at the housing in Japan. they are masters of cramming the most human flesh into the least possible living quarters.
In japan its a necessity to build that way due to limited areas to build on and large population .. housing expense too .. have friends in tokyo with good jobs but due high cost of property they rent space to sleep at internet cafe's that have washer/dryer and shower ..
as to the op no idea .. cant see them having a tourist boom over there as not many want to get molested by the tsa when they go on holiday ..
