Downtown Toronto Container House Extension

Storstac is excited to announce that along with The Hamilton Shipping Container House, we have also fabricated and installed TORONTO’S FIRST shipping container house extension, which has been permanently installed in the heart of Downtown Toronto’s West Queen West district (on Queen St @ Bathurst St), right here at our Toronto, Canada shipping container fabrication facility. This precedent setting build nicknamed the Harlem Underground Shipping Container House (as it will expand the current living quarters that are part of the same building that Harlem Underground Restaurant is located) will consist of three 20′ High Cube shipping containers sitting on top of a solid concrete foundation. Although the shipping containers themselves are fabricated in China (as China is the only place in the world where shipping containers are fabricated) all of the modification work for this project was undertaken at our Toronto, Canada fabrication facility. Follow us on Instagram @storstac_containers for updates on this and other projects.
