The genesis of this project is to determine if shipping containers can be used effectively to create multi-storey residential buildings at a fraction of the cost of standard construction. This will be a 9-storey building with a total of 70 units. There are bachelor and one bedroom units in the 400 to 500 sq ft range. The units will have the ‘feel’ of the shipping container with the metal finish visible inside and out.
