An Indianapolis lady and her company unveiled programs for a boutique resort made of shipping containers she’s arranging to open up in the Haughville community this summer time. 

Robin Staten-Lanier, a new hotelier, is the owner of Little Urban Escapes, a hidden micro resort that would comprise of 4 semi-glass non-public luxury suites and non-public function space — all converted from upcycled-transport containers.

The lodge will be positioned at 2214 W. Michigan St. in the vicinity of the Indianapolis Community Library Haughville branch. Very small City Escapes is a Black-owned, feminine-led enterprise.  

“This goes beyond hospitality,” she claimed. “The intent is to transform communities, but also to use this space, pretty much as an igniter of more financial enhancement in this local community.”

Design is tentatively predicted to be done in the summertime. Twenty-foot delivery containers will be transformed into suites although the function house — called “The Scene” — will be produced from a larger 40-foot transport container. Each individual suite will have accessibility to wellness and culinary activities and on-demand from customers concierge assistance.

Reclaiming transport containers and reworking them into customized modular building projects has been a trend for some time. The containers are thought of economical, tough and eco-pleasant development materials.
