While projects involving the development of shipping container communities are resulting in urban housing available at less than half of the price of traditional residential units with similar square footage, the true potential of shipping container housing has yet to be explored for commercial real estate. Nothing Into Something Real Estate, Inc. (NISRE), founder and originator of Cargominiums™ has partnered with AES Development to design the prototype Cargominium™ multi-family housing structure is set for development in Columbus, Ohio June 2015 featuring a mixed use of residential and commercial units. The unique design of the container retains the integrity of a fully prefabricated shipping container during transport; then allows for the conversation to a fully functional Cargominium™ within 3 months. This system allows a fully sustainable residence to be constructed at even the most remote sites in 1/15 the time and 60% less of the cost of traditional building processes.
The execution of Cargominiums™ will result in the creation of twenty five residential two bedroom, 1 bath condo units fabricated from used shipping containers. These condominiums will provide affordable housing for low and moderate income groups in residence with Nothing Into Something Real Estate, Inc. Populations include seniors, restored citizens, chronically homeless adults, and transition aged youth.
With the environment in mind, Cargominiums™ will be both nature friendly and nature resistant. Cargo construction offers an ingenious eco-friendly design that is both storm resistant and innovative. Each Cargominium™ frame is constructed of 100% recycled steel and will be upgraded with the most energy efficient products available on the market. Additionally, the carefully selected building materials and design will create a home that can be completely opened to the elements or closed with almost no energy waste once fully secured. The result is a condo that is spacious and offers serenity and all of the comforts of home.
