A New Life for Shipping Containers

From the moment I was first introduced to the idea of using shipping containers for real estate development, it made a whole lot of sense. I caught some "green" home or living show on TV that featured LA architect, Peter Demaria of Demaria Design. So when I heard about Larry Pokras' new firm, LNP Design, in Costa Mesa, I was thrilled to have a local design firm centered around shipping container development. With the Port of Long Beach just miles away, this is something for any real estate investor or developer to seriously consider getting into.

The aesthetic appeal of using modern modular units from developers like Living Homes and shipping container projects has overwhelmingly been proven to be a success around the world so why not in Orange County? With building and land prices as high as they are, this seems to me like a very lucrative opportunity for anyone able to obtain construction financing. Especially anyone sitting around with monopoly money in the bank. The possibilities are nearly endless with what creative developers can do with shipping containers.
