Shipping Container Apartments in H Street Zone Not Happening


A 22 unit residential apartment development constructed of reclaimed shipping containers planned the 1600 block of Kramer Street, NE near the H Street Corridor will not be going forward. A different team and concept for the city-owned plot of land will be selected.

Travis Price Architects was the architect in the shipping container proposal along with local developer Neighborhood Development Company (NDC). The plan included 22 rowhome-like structures constructed from shipping containers. 40% of the 22 units would have been designated as affordable.

“Not every residential project is automatically approved by the city,” said Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company. “In this case, the developers were pushing for a higher resident density and less parking as part of a continuing Eco-New Urbanist vision of DC. “Opponents of the project wanted more family density and more parking and public space. In this case, the opponents of this project came out on top.”

Travis Price Architects also designed an already-completed 3 story, 4 unit shipping container apartment project at 3305 Seventh Street, NE in Brookland / Edgewood. That project was fully constructed in just 2 months of 2014.

New project can be seen at 3305 Seventh Street, NE.
