These shipping containers are part of the Ashley St. Container Lofts project.

The first of three livable shipping container deliveries arrived Downtown on Sept. 18 at JWB Real Estate Capital’s Ashley Street Container Lofts project.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reported JWB President Alex Sifakis said Sept. 21 that project contractor ShayCore Enterprises Inc. delivered containers to the site with a partial build-out complete.

“There will be three ‘drops’ total,” Sifakis said in an email.

“We are doing it staggered, not like we had originally planned where all the containers are coming to (the) site at once.”

The $1.7 million project comprises 18 retrofitted shipping containers in Jacksonville's Cathedral District. Sifakis said the goal was to finish the build-out off-site and deliver the shipping containers to the 412 E. Ashley St. property.
