If you’re familiar with Nashville, then you probably know that its dining scene is a huge part of its draw. Restaurant and bar owners here love to get creative with the dining experience – even adapting shipping containers into a full restaurant. Avo is a vegan restaurant located in West Nashville that opened its doors in 2015 – and on top of serving vegan-friendly and local food, it makes great use of shipping containers to form its dining spaces and kitchen.

Using a storage container like the ones we sell at Rent-A-Container is a perfect low cost, sustainable way to start out your own culinary endeavors. Since shipping containers are reusable and create less waste to produce than constructing an entirely new building, they are generally more cost effective than purchasing a building outright – plus, shipping container restaurants have a great atmosphere to them, making them popular everywhere they show up.

Shopping Districts

Shopping District

Shipping containers can be built into shopping districts – like oneC1TY in Nashville. Image courtesy of Nashville Post.

In 2021, plans were released for a shipping container district called Recess, which is located in West Nashville. This district, consisting of five levels of adapted shipping containers packed with restaurants, bars, dining space, and a stage for live music, provides patrons with a great shopping and dining experience. It’s not even the first retail district in Nashville made entirely of shipping containers – that honor goes to oneC1TY, a shopping area made up of 21 shipping containers housing various businesses, including Avo and SandBar Nashville.

These kinds of shipping container districts are great ways to launch businesses. With lower construction costs and less waste involved, they are cost effective and eco-friendly – and they fit well in cities like Nashville that are already packed. Consider looking into a shipping container project or commercial district before launching your own business!

Although shipping container homes can be hard to come by in Nashville, they’re definitely still there – and they can be used in extremely creative ways. For example, 83 Freight is an apartment complex made up of over 170 shipping containers, all converted into sustainable apartments of various sizes. This complex has turned out to be a great place for those concerned with keeping their living arrangements eco-friendly – the community places a huge focus on recycling and maintaining communal green spaces.

People who’ve used Rent-A-Container can barely contain themselves!

With Rent-A-Container’s custom container options, you can create and customize your own living space, too. These containers can be deceptively large, so if you’re looking into renting a one-to-three bedroom apartment, consider renovating and customizing a shipping container to live in instead!
