Shipping Container Apartments Planned for Downtown Jacksonville

We are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to provide affordable housing here in Jacksonville. A new project to help us do that is the development of an apartment community downtown made up of shipping containers. The rent for these  320-square-foot studio apartments will begin at $550, providing residents with more affordable housing options, and contributing to downtown’s growth. The Jacksonville Business Journal wrote a great article on the project. To read the entire article click on the image below.

WJXT News4Jax also showcased the project and the impact it will have on this growing market. See the coverage now at
