Not just a Container

18th March 2011

Downtown Brooklyn will be getting its own shipping container market, named Dekalb Market and will be located at CityPoint.

Opening this summer, it will be home to a food market, local artisans, restaurants, work-sell shops, a performance venue, giving preference to first time retailers.

Its developer, Urban Sponn, is also running a competition to come up with an innovative idea for the structure, with the winner receiving six months free rent and $3,000 for design and construction.

CONTAINER SPECS: Designs must conform to an 8’ wide by 20’ long by 9.5’ high ISO steel shipping container.
