Container City 2

Built in 2002

Probably the most photographed container building in the world, Container City 2 is easily recognisable by its bright colours designed to reflect the creative nature of those who occupy its 22 studios. Built adjacent to Container City 1, with interconnecting bridges, a lift and full disabled access, Container City 2 was completed in 2002. It offers five floors of workspace and is the focal point of Trinity Buoy Wharf.
