Each container apartment is available for rent at $1050 per month and includes water, sewer, and trash, as well as basic internet service. On the lower level, each Live + Work unit will feature a full-size kitchen with a reverse osmosis filtration system, large living room, paved patio, small garden, and off-street parking for a single vehicle. On the second level, the units will include a bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet, stackable washer and dryer, and private balcony.
Following the development of these nine Live Work Units, Smith is also planning 50 to 70 additional one to two bedroom apartments constructed from over 200 containers. “We’ve had a tremendous response from the public on this first phase of apartments. With only nine apartments available, we recommend that interested residents reach out as soon as possible to reserve. We are accepting deposits and early reservations at this time.” states Smith.
