Is a mall made out of shipping containers being built in New York?

    It certainly is! LOT-EK is the company behind various shipping container projects, including a mall being built at 42nd street and 5th Ave in New York City. This mall is going to be nine levels high, and the shipping containers will be staked unevenly creating an undulating facade. Each individual shipping contained will serve one store. The containers will be connected using elevators, stairs and catwalks. The containers will also be attached to adjacent buildings to allow for plenty of through traffic. Certain areas will be left empty of shipping containers in order to create outdoor spaces and allow for natural air and light to enter the otherwise closed off mall. The mall is an ingenius idea to cheaply fill up vacant plots of land in the city that otherwise might stay vacant.
