Shipping container rentals coming soon

The people behind this development are also the ones behind the first shipping container home to go on the Indianapolis housing market.

If you’ve taken College Avenue across the bridge over Fall Creek, you may have noticed a development on the corner of College + Sutherland. It’s kind of hard to miss.

There’s a cluster of shipping containers stacked on top of each other with construction in progress. It stopped us in our tracks, so we had to find out more.

The development project is owned by Indy Urban Jungles — which also owns one of Indianapolis’ first shipping container homes that we told you about on social media back in December 2021.

We reached out to them to give us the inside scoop on their project + they told us this development is made up of three “sustainable, luxury, and nature-centric rental homes.”

The project is utilizing 21 used shipping containers — seven for each home.

When the rental homes are complete, they will feature a greenhouse and rooftop patio + each home will have its own interior theme.

There’s no word on when the expected open date will be, but we’ll keep you updated when we know more.
