What do you call a pop-up collection of shipping containers? Boxpark! WRONG! There’s a new boxy kid in town and it’s called ContainerVille! Although it’s similar in set up to Shoreditch mini-mall Boxpark, this new development on Regent’s Canal by Broadway Market will be less about shopping and more about working. The Estate Office Shoreditch hopes that the new initiative for London’s start-ups will attract young creatives looking for reasonable rent in a trendy canal-side location.
Whole containers will be up for grabs for £1200 a month or you can rent a desk for £320 per person per month. The boxes are being primed and ready to rent from the start of June, so soon you too could be chilling like the virtual dudes in this mock-up below. That said, there are only 30 containers and we imagine they’ll get snapped up pretty sharpish.
