Located directly at the Shoreditch High Street Tube station in London, the mall is constructed on a temporary site from 61 recycled shipping containers. The lower floor consists of 41 containers, and the remaining 20 shipping containers are on the upper floor. Almost all of the stores on the first floor open directly onto the sidewalk, with the exception of the retail unit (Nike) closest to the Tube station, which still has street high visibility. The second floor provides a great amount of seating for the multiple restaurants and coffee shops.

Depending on what you intend to move in and out of the container, you'll need to decide which is the better option for you.
