Cargotecture has found a voice in Cedar Rapids where investors set their sights on a different kind of project.

Deep in the woods of Northern New York, on a 14-acre plot of land sits a black micro-cabin built to create a peaceful getaway for those looking to escape.  What makes this escape unique is not only its’ picturesque location, but its’ tiny indoor living space. The micro-cabin is built from a 20 foot shipping container and serves as a one-of-a-kind vacation rental that is featured on AirBnb.

Pop-up shops are just the latest trend in the open-air retail market. In Memphis Tennessee, there is an entire pop-up shop market called The Shabby Chic Marketplace at The Edge. Built like a shopping mall, its intent is simple: to create commerce in a the most cost-effective, creative way as possible. This Marketplace is designed out of great quality containers built together at The Edge. The containers appeal to local start-up and small businesses to rent spaces for short term commerce.
