You might have heard of ways that intermodal dry van boxes have been recycled for commercial or residential use. If not, here’s a gallery of 10 photos to give you a quick idea.

One of the most ambitious such projects is expected to open next month in Las Vegas. The Downtown Container Park will function as a business incubator , providing entrepreneurs with small spaces to launch a business. The park will have 30-plus occupants: bars, restaurants, retail space, a children’s play area, and more.

In addition to using the shipping containers, it will use Xtreme Cubes, which are locally made metal boxes.

To learn more about the project, read or listen to this recent report from NPR.
