Taste & See KC: Shipping Container Home

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City's first container house is located at 59th and Charlotte in KCMO, and is on the market for $849,000. The single-family home is made out of five shipping containers, totaling 2,600 square feet. The contemporary design features two bedrooms and three bathrooms. It is also eco-friendly and energy-efficient, including landscaping that is completely edible.

I thought all the hype behind building a container home was that it was a cheaper way to have a new home. To me a $830,000 house is not a cheap home plus at 2600 sq ft it only has two bedrooms with three baths, sounds rather lopsided to me.

The single container home she built in Washington Wheatley is cool but, it's about four or five blocks east of prospect or as the hoodrats call it suspect Ave. I'm not so sure 150 to 250 grand is such a good idea in that neighborhood. She bought a bunch of vacant lots for a few hundred bucks from the city. I'm not knocking her but probably not the best place to put them.

These hideous monstrosities look like miniature versions of the barracks being thrown up around KCMO and marketed as "luxury apartments".
The myth of the urban millenial stampede is already fading and with overbuilding way out in front, the burst bubble won't be far behind.
Then rents will soften and head south and "developers" will be back to the taxpayer for more help with their public/private "partnerships".
And be looking for any tenant they can find.
Outsize percentages of One Light are already airbnb rentals. Not exactly the "neighborhood" it's touted to be.
18th and Vine isn't the only "movie set" make-believe location in town.
