Shipping Containers Re-purposed as Modular Storefronts

The 12-story rundown, vacant Plaza hotel on the southside of downtown Dallas is getting a makeover in the form of a 220-room Holiday Inn, part of a $34 million project. Included in the plan is 1,800 square-feet of commercial space at the edge of the motel’s parking lot that will be comprised of shipping containers re-purposed as modular units. According to the Dallas Morning News, the developers are seeking $2.3 million in tax increment financing district funds to help defray infrastructure costs. If the Dallas City Council Economic Development Committee approves, MHProNews has learned the proposal will be on the Dallas City Council’s agenda at their next meeting. Completion is anticipated for next year.
