THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE:
Salt Lake City apartment complex to be built out of shipping containers.
It’s a Utah housing project made of boxes, welcomed for its “outside the box” design.
A Salt Lake City company called Eco Box Fabricators broke ground Jan. 31 on what will be the state’s first multi-story apartment complex made of steel shipping containers.
Backers of the Box 500 Apartments project, at 543 South 500 West, say it will stand six stories tall and offer 83 new studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments accessible to renters earning below the area’s median wages.
