Modular Container Homes Bringing People back to Downtown Phoenix

Phoenix_steel_modulars__treehugger__starkjames_containers_on_grandDowntown Phoenix is getting an entirely new look: Shipping containers being converted into 740 square foot, one bedroom, one bath, modular homes. Designed and built by Starkjames, Containers on Grand, as the development is called, is for tenants who are looking for “something that is creative, innovative and different,” according to what one of the investors, Kathleen Santin, tells MHProNews.

She says there is a shift in generational thinking, that people do not want to be in the suburbs anymore, they are more interested in living downtown.

With adequate HVAC, the occupants of these steel modular units should remain comfortable. ##
