Square 2 Live + Work Units

Living in The Cargo District is an exceptional experience. Square 2 at The Cargo District, is our nine-unit container home community. Square 2 is without a doubt one of the most unique places to live in the City of Wilmington, NC. Our container homes are mix of shipping containers and stick-built architecture, and they create a modern vibe that is not only aesthetically cool, but incredibly functional. Each unit is one bedroom, and approximately 620 square feet. They feature heated concrete flooring downstairs, a custom built staircase, original container flooring and vinyl plank flooring upstairs, European-style custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bath, matte black plumbing fixtures throughout, custom built-in queen-sized bed, custom fabricated aluminum balcony, floor to ceiling tile in the shower, as well as a custom glass shower enclosure. Each unit is equipped with black stainless steel kitchen appliances, and the units come with a washer and dryer located in the walk-in closet. Not only did we think about livability with these units, we took design into consideration. While these spaces appear small, each unit is packed with form and function. This is tiny home container living at its finest.
