Six years ago (February 2011) we held public tours of the Fox Residence. This was part of Tom’s goal, to share a different way of making a home. It was hosted with USGBC Heart of Florida Chapter. Thanks Mary Alford!

TINY HOMES AS AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPTIONS
Communities are concerned about having reasonably priced housing and “tiny homes” are certainly are reasonably priced. Some firms in Gainesville, Europe, Austin, and Las Vegas have taken it to a new level using such structures for student housing and commercial development.

We’re working on this design with Mat Chandler. It is a great opportunity to make therapuetic space with containers.

Congratulations to my favorite box builder, Little River Box Company, put together the latest addition to Wynwood Yards.
Here are some images from my recent visit. Well designed and finely crafted containers.
Here is the article. Our HIVE project is referenced by ou partner Little River Box Co. It is mentioned about halfway through…
“In Miami, Little River Box Co. specializes in converting shipping containers into temporary or permanent businesses such as barbershops and bars. One of the company’s projects involves using 10 containers to build a proposed mixed-use development in the 1400 block of Northeast Fourth Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. Restaurants and retail would be on the ground floor, with offices above.”
Shipping Container Commercial Architecture
The HIVE FTL development is a landmark/statement project that will be the focal point of this emerging and rapidly growing section of Fort Lauderdale, between FATVillage Arts District
and Wilton Manors. It will be the first multi-level commercial space fabricated out of shipping containers in Broward County.
Contained within the HIVE will be businesses chosen specifically because the tenants share the developers vision of sustainable and creative development. The ground floor will feature two locally based unique fast casual food concepts that focus on fresh and innovative menus at a price point that will appeal to locals. The ground floor will also feature a unique coffee and dessert concept as well. Occupying the second floor will be a product development company that helps companies and individuals take their ideas from concept through design, product development, branding, production, and even packaging and sales. They will also offer courses in 3D printing, tech manufacturing, start-up and business development of interest to the local community. The third floor will be occupied by a National Franchise of “School of Rock”. SOR is a fantastic performance based lesson program that teaches music to kids from age 3-18 and even offers a “grad school” for adults in the evenings. This unique blend of tenants means there will be something for everyone at the HIVE FTL all centered around a unique design and construction that will include green spaces and open terraces for all to enjoy.
