This storage facility re-purposes 219 shipping containers and sheathes them in polycarbonate and insulated metal. Each container was filled with consumer goods in Asia and shipped to America before retiring to its permanent Cedar Rapids home. After a light re-finishing, the corrugated walls and robust door hardware remain intact and operational. The result provides 416 conditioned storage units in three levels in addition to management offices, hospitality space, and a loading garage.
