Boxpark mall in London uses recycled shipping containers
We’ve seen stores carved into recycled shipping containers before. Now, London plays home to a full-fledged mall, completely constructed out of recycled shipping containers, located at the east end. Called the Boxpark, this mall plays home to trendy apparel stores, and uses 60 containers stacked two stories high and five rows wide. The floors above host restaurants with outside benches and tables while the mall also brags of a concept store with gifts from Amnesty International apart from the regular Levi’s, Puma, Calvin Klein and Nike stores. Also, the stores vary in size, with some using two to three containers with unique displays, making this one of the greenest shopping areas in London. Top this one with solar panels, and voila! You could probably enjoy a true-to-flesh eco-friendly shopping area in the heart of London.
