When the owner’s work is finished on what he’s calling the McGowen Container House, the stack of boxes just east of 59 will be a 4-story house with a carport at ground level and a terrace atop the blue Hanjin unit shown in the photo above. A few windows, doors, and portions of the staircase that will climb through the building’s east side have been installed, according to the blog for the project. Rough-in plumbing and some preliminary electrical wiring is finished as well, but the utilities aren’t on yet.
Here’s a view of the cargo hold from the east, near Hutchins St.:
Townhouses abut the structure on 2 sides. Across a vacant lot to the west, a few houses forged from more traditional construction techniques sit on the corner of St. Emanuel St.
