Aprisa Mexican shipping container restaurant in Portland.
The owner of the shipping container restaurant Aprisa in Portland not only wants to serve delicious south of the border specialities to hungry customers, he wants do it in an environmentally friendly way. The Mexican takeout operation at Portland’s Southeast Eighth Avenue near Division Street serves Mexican specialties out of a repurposed cargo container. Kirk Lance is the owner Aprisa. Kirk cites the considerations of lowered start up costs for the compact restaurant and as importantly, a way to recycle the scores of empty Conex boxes leftover around the intermodal terminals in Portland. “Here is what is happening: The U.S. is importing so many things, and exporting very little,” says Lance. “We have these shipping containers being left in droves, and we are just stacking them up. They are becoming industrial waste.” The restaurant space is compact for sure with a total square footage under 370 sq feet. The cost of heating and cooling a small space saves utility costs for a small business like Aprisa. The converted sea container is built onto a concrete foundation, which allows it to be regulated as a building and not like a food truck. The renovated steel box needs to be connected to utility lines and may be operational a mere 2 days after being transported to the lot. “It was the culmination of sustainability and recycling and portability all coming together,” Lance says. Lance has the idea of producing more of the ready made restaurant containers which could be sold as modular units in shipping containers outfitted with all of the necessities required to set up a pod restaurant in any city with an unused lot waiting. Placed in parking lots or empty spaces near areas with high demand, these portable turn-key restaurants could provide healthy, homemade food through an environmentally friendly format.

Shipping container home developments, Shipping container apartments and tiny homes in Portland

In nearby Oregon City, building company Relevant Buildings is converting used sea containers into unique homes and multiple unit condominium complexes. Developer Carl Coffman is behind the project in the city of St. Helens – an eight-unit shipping container condo complex built on land leased from the city. Each unit is built out of recycled intermodal containers which may be purchased for as little as $2,500. The individual 650-foot, one-bedroom units are stacked together “like Legos”, four below and four above. Multiple container living spaces can be constructed by connecting several containers together, increasing the living space to more than 1,000 sq feet. It is estimated the price of the basic model home will be around $70,000. One main advantage of the shipping container condo is that the box can be renovated and outfitted offsite and the completed home shipped to the lot, thereby cutting down on construction time. The container homes are more environmentally friendly and efficient in terms of materials in that a Conex home also uses only about an eighth of the wood required to construct traditional wood-frame houses.
