It’s not often that we delve into the murky world of real estate, but having stumbled across this new ‘development’ we thought it would be unkind not to share it:
ContainerVille is a stack of 30 shipping containers arranged over two floors, up-cycled* into modern work spaces by Broadway Market and the Regents Canal.
Each container can comfortably accommodate four desks, has running water, electricity and a 100Mb internet connection, while being slap bang at the centre of East London’s hippest, design-focused boroughs.
The space is still costly – around £1,300pcm once you’ve factored in costs – however, for a SME trying to make a name for itself in the Capital, it might be worth a look.
Discounts are available for long term leases, while super short term arrangements might be just the thing for a City-based product launch.
*Rats, rust and illegal immigrants all cleaned out; insulation, paint and power points put in
