Unlike many projects, the units here do not look like shipping containers. Toronto developer InvestorCentric Inc. used the containers as the basis for two multi-family buildings. According to the report, the containers’ structural strength is 50 times that of wood framing, is fireproof and can be built to a height of 10 stories. With modifications to the process, the developers now estimate a three story building can be constructed in 11 days.
