Piazza Pod Park is a Massive Shipping Container Hub

The Piazza Pod Park just opened in Philadelphia, the massive shipping container park taking over a 35,000 square foot empty parking lot. The park is made up of 15 customized shipping containers, ranging between 10 and 40 feet long. It is loosely based on the concept of the Las Vegas Container Park.

The park is divided into four zones, each with their own theme and unique attractions. The park offers beer-garden-style dining, retail shopping, fitness activities, and art installations. One of its art attractions is a 33-foot robot statue, known as Beebot the robot, who debuted at Burning Man and was named the “biggest, weirdest and most radical art from Burning Man 2018,” by Art World. The other major art installation is called ThinkCube, which is made up of 185 interconnected water-storage containers, it is 800 feet long, and has 100,000 LED lights. It also has family play areas, can seat 300 people, and it is dog-friendly.

The park has an indoor, climate-controlled dining pod, which is two stories and has a deck on the roof. They offer a wide variety of multi-cultural dining, along with a brewery and a distillery; all of the restaurants have something exclusive to the park. There are also three family pods, which includes a pod specifically for nursing mothers.

Some of the food vendors at the park include Dim Sum House’s Lil’ Sum Sum, French Toast Bites by Lokal Artisan Foods, Empanada Box, Craft Beer Concepts Inspired by BRU Craft & Wurst, and Tiki Tako.

The food vendors said the opening weekend for the park greatly exceeded their expectations.

"We actually had to head out several times to restock supplies," Urban Village owner and head brewer Dave Goldman said. "We had come into the weekend with supplies for seven days, and in fact used them and doubled what we needed in a two-day period."
