36-Room Shipping Container Hotel Planned For Detroit
A 36-room hotel planned for Detroit has a unique twist.
It's made out of shipping containers.
Detroit Collision Works is the name of a 36-room hotel being developed in Detroit. The project has two phases.
The first phase, "First Container: Collision Works Story Box", is being built thanks to hundreds of supporters on Kickstarter.
The next phase, Detroit Collision Works, is the 36-room hotel made out of shipping containers.
The map below show the locations.
It will take the cooperation of many to make this project a reality. Kickstarter.com lists a few of those responsible:
- Eastern Market Corporation has offered prime real estate outside Shed 5 for a six month demonstration
- Integrity Builders Group of Detroit will handle the construction
- SG Blocks will provide the containers, engineering, and all box transportation
- KOOP AM (Architects) is designing how it all works, what’s inside, and drew these pictures we are already looking at.
I think it's a fun idea and would love to stay once the project is complete.
Learn why Detroit Collision Works is being called "the most important hotel in America".
