This whole thing is getting hot snot.  Coffee, street delis, hot food kiosk, mini bodegas.  And it's damn sensible, IMHO.

looks nicer than my house (if you GIS for the other 3)

Well they're going to need to be stackable in order to fit more than a few on each block..

The first one of those is just down the road here. I've never been in it, LOL.

In the near future, I wonder what those shipping containers will "repurposed" for?

I guess on some level that is not tacky.

First one was in Tukwila? They needed something to protect them from drive bys.

Been to the shipping container one, it's right across the street from the Museum of Flight * fits with the mostly factory/industrial feel of the neighborhood. And the staff is pretty friendly, or was when I went to it.

When I was in Cebu - there were untold numbers of people living near the river - in structures of recycled material,  It was tough to see the appeal.

It looks odd, but it's good to see a company make use of old shipping containers in what I quite frankly believe is an innovative way.

They oughta make 'em look like giant Legos.

Hipsters in Asbury Park have done this on the boardwalk with their restaurants.

There's an entire shopping mall like this in Christchurch, NZL

Ah, yes. The repurposed shipping container. The biggest cliche of modern architecture of the last decade.

The 80s gave us the repurposed factories, now it's gotten even lower grade.

Agreed, I guess submitter has never seen the multi housing units built out of these, or the houses built out of them. (both of which are actually really cool)

Last year I happened to come upon a Windows 8 pop-up store that Microsoft had built inside a series of shipping containers. At the point Microsoft and Starbucks are co-opting a trend, it's over.

I recently visited family in Portland. Despite having lived in San Francisco, Seattle, and on two Hawaii'n islands, Portland is the one place where I have actually seen a Starbucks across the street from a Starbucks.

It's my understanding that, given a moderate amount of time, the Starbucks could be repurposed into...drumroll please...shipping containers.

I don't get their marketing strategy, but in the Los Angeles area they often have a Starbucks within a block of a grocery store with an in-store Starbucks.

"The Luxury" on the San Antonio riverwalk is constructed of the same.

Ugh, that monkey looks a fark lot more pretentious and arseholeish than the places that the Hipsters in Asbury Park do. But still, it is a good thing to reuse these containers than have them rusting in some dump. One of the public bathrooms in Asbury Park is made out of old storage containers, it survived Hurricane Sandy!
