The Alexander Street Project cleverly provides low-income families and women at risk of homelessness with extremely affordable and stylish homes. Basically this Vancouver-based project involves repurposing old shipping containers and turning them into sleek modern apartments.

These shipping containers have been stacked on top of one another and transformed into an apartment complex. Each one is fully furnished, providing those in need with a comfortable space to live in. The rent paid for these intriguing containers is so low that renters will easily be able to maintain a suitable lifestyle without constantly worrying about their finances. Rent can be so high in the Vancouver area, and these converted shipping containers offer less fortunate citizens a great alternative to pricey condominiums and downtown apartments.
