Shipping containers being transformed into entertainment district in Lake Nona

ORLANDO, Fla. — Lake Nona’s newest entertainment district is coming together piece-by-piece this week – one shipping container at a time.

Boxi Park off Lake Nona Boulevard will be made up of a total of 14 containers ranging from 20 to 40 feet long.

Tavistock Development will transform the 9-and-a-half-foot-tall shipping containers into everything from kitchens to restaurants, bars and a beer garden.


Resident Carla Laszlo said she’s excited to see the new development come to fruition.

"I think it will be a really positive force in the community," Laszlo said.
The containers are from SG Blocks, a company known for taking old shipping containers and turning them into sustainable new structures.

Boxi Park will also include a fenced dog park, playground and large, shaded seating area.

The shipping containers are expected to be installed in the next three days. The park is scheduled to open in December.
