London’s Container City: Unique, Affordable Housing

The troubled economy has been a concern for many London citizens.

To provide affordable, housing option during this economic downturn, at least as it concerns housing, a developer has created a neighborhood solely made up of shipping container homes, as discussed in this recent article.

It is pretty shocking that shipping containers are now doing double duty as homes.

They are increasingly, being converted for this purpose.

London’s Container City is one example of this.

Located near the Trinity Buoy Wharf., this area contains numerous buildings, along with the shipping container dwellings.

The homes are stacked on top of each other, up to four stories high.

Renting a shipping container home in London is pretty affordable.

Individuals can  expect to pay between £600 to £1,000 per month, which is very reasonable considering where Container City is located, in central London.
