Speaking of creative uses for shipping containers, Dennis Wong (campsyte.com) has announced a pre-app meeting for a three-level “mixed-use” development at 10th and Harrison Streets. This is the same vacant lot that was to be home to a recycling center last year.
The project is described as a temporary use composed of repurposed shipping containers on an existing paved parking lot. It would contain 5,280 square feet of space that would feature retail shops and vendors as well as several different common areas. Common spaces and amenities include secure bike storage, shared lounges, creative spaces to feature and display art and micro kitchens.
Housing is prohibited in the Service, Arts and Light Industrial (SALI) zoning district where the project would be located and offices are only allowed as an accessory use.
The pre-app meeting is at 11:00 in the morning on Sunday, July 26 at 405 10th Street, the site of the parking lot.
