Used Shipping Containers
Used shipping containers are the ideal storage and transportation medium for a huge amount of American businesses. Coming in 10’, 20’ and 40’ sizes, used shipping containers offer a cost effective and secure way to store or transport your products from one side of the country to the other. Or indeed, from one country to another (they are called ‘Shipping Containers’ after all!).
Here are some groovy examples of where used containers have been repurposed by American businesses…
Repurposed Used Shipping Containers – Downtown Container Park
Las Vegas is known for fun and entertainment, and the city’s Downtown Container Park doesn’t disappoint. Part of the recently revitalized East Fremont District, the Shipping Container Park is home to a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options. It is a haven for small retailers that don’t necessarily have the budget for larger retail spaces. Here’s what you need to know about the Container Park and how it makes great use of used shipping containers.
Outdoor Fun for the Whole Family
Shopping malls made from used shipping containers are growing in popularity all over the world, and Las Vegas was among the first to jump on this growing trend. What started as a small space showcasing local vendors has grown into a full-fledged shopping, dining and entertainment experience.
The entire structure is made up of used shipping containers, arranged around a central courtyard. At the center of it all is a stage where musicians, acrobats and other entertainers perform live shows on a regular basis. There is also a playground, complete with a tree house, to keep the little ones entertained while their parents enjoy a bite to eat from one of the many quick-service eateries.
The containers in the Downtown Container Park are stacked two- or three-high throughout the facility, providing multiple levels of shopping and dining. Many of the outlets have terraces or patios, letting patrons take advantage of Las Vegas’s beautiful, warm weather. These terraces and even the stairwells to reach the upper levels are made from used shipping containers.
Each retailer or dining outlet occupies one or two containers, and this modular design makes it easy for new vendors to break into the space. This could open up opportunities for a variety of pop-ups and other temporary installations going forward.
