There's a small, awkward piece of land on the NE corner of I-40 and Carlisle in Albuquerque, NM that seemed of little use. Although it's conveniently located, with easy, but limited access, a Hampton Inn across the street, and an Econo Lodge and the Hotel Cascada on the other side of the arroyo, the parcel is not well suited for a traditional shopping center or office complex. But not all is lost, because someone got the brilliant idea to build a mall out of shipping containers on the orphan parcel. So far there is a coffee shop and a tap room in Albuquerque's first container mall. Not only does it look really cool, but it offers several shop spaces and has a small enough footprint that there are 80 parking places on the site. It's nice when people start thinking inside the box, literally, and make workable containerized spaces.
