Detroit Shipping Container Condos
Detroit firm Three Squared plans to build a 20-unit condo development at Warren Avenue and Rosa Parks Boulevard near Wayne State University. Construction is slated for 2013 with model units to be built in 2012
A local firm is proving Detroit development can get way wackier than Dan Gilbert's garish interior design scheme at the the Chase Tower. Three Squared will build a 20-unit, 26,000 square feet condo development constructed of shipping containers at Rosa Parks Boulevard and Warren Avenue.

Designed by local architect Steven Flum, the project has been in development for several years but was halted after the 2008 crash. Now, Three Squared plans to begin construction on a three-story model unit on Michigan Avenue by the end of the year to pre-sell condos, with the development itself slated to be built in spring 2013. According to the Detroit Free Press, the development will cost $3.4 million, and notes they received a $603,000 tax credit.
