Trumbull Squared, on the southwest corner of Trumbull and Pine, just north of Interstate 75. Made of nine old shipping containers, it’ll be used to sell units for the next two phases of Three Squared’s project — a 20-unit shipping container development in Midtown and another behind the model unit in Corktown.
The model unit’s first two floors will display and showcase the technology of shipping container living and what it is all about.
“The third floor is a one-bedroom unit in and of itself,” says Horn. “People can actually go up to it and really look to see what container living would look like.”
Once the 2,880-square-foot model unit is complete — which should be in June — the exterior will be a mix of siding, brick and exposed steel. It’ll be used to pre-sell units for Rosa Parks Squared, a 20-unit development at the corner of West Warren and Rosa Parks in Woodbridge, and more units behind the model unit.
“Eric Lloyd Wright (renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson), who is our chief architect, is going to design a whole bunch of row houses and then a big apartment complex,” Horn says. “… We’re going to show all the versatility of what we can do.”
