Repurposed shipping containers have been popping up around the Bay Area at a rapid pace, and though the steel structures can be used for a variety of purposes, including housing, they’ve found a nearly perfect fit as small-scale shops and restaurants. Tour two successful projects in uptown Oakland to hear from the designers and business owners about how this building form has created not just shopping opportunities but micro-communities. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
