Residential developments planned out of shipping containers just keep popping up in DC.
Hinds Development and Travis Price Architects are taking a former Safeway store in Brookland and repurposing the site with four, two-bedroom apartments made out of shipping containers above retail space. The site at 1201 Franklin Street NE (map) was a grocery store in the 1970s, according to Price, and most recently used as a medical building.
The shipping container homes will have loft living rooms, private balconies and will be passively solar heated. The planned completion date is next year.
If you are keeping count (and we are), this project will make the third residential development made of shipping containers in DC. The first opened in Edgewood in 2014, and last month we covered a Shaw development made of sea containers.
