Hi Tanya, just like my colleagues answered. It is a 2 Bedroom apartment where the 2nd Bedroom is usually smaller than the first one.

A junior 4 generally has 4 rooms; one large bedroom and a second smaller room that can be used as a bedroom, dining room, office, etc. For a more detailed expanation, consult with your agent.

J 4 means there is additional room that can be used for a baby!

A Jr. 4 is originally a one bedroom apartment that has converted its dining room into a small bedroom. Most of these small bedrooms are next to the kitchen, and have no closets. In addition because the dining roomhas been eliminated the living room must used as a dining area. In addition the livable square footage, along with closet space is far smaller than a real two bedroom apartment. These apartments are good for either for young single people, or “empty nesters”.

Its not real 2BR, just a small 2nd room. Mostlikely you won't have any more room left to put up a dry wall or something.

2Bedroom (4Junior) usually means there is a 'Smaller' second bedroom. This can be a TRUE 2-Bedroom constructed this way by the developer or some of the larger 4-Room apartments create a second "Smaller/Junior" bedroom usually from a dining alcove.

it probably means that they converted some of the rooms like dining room etc.
If you are going to view this property should find out how much would a regular 2 bedroom is going for. and a 2 bedroom junior which means 1 of the bedrooms is smaller.

If you would like more information
