Old shipping containers to become Orlando hot spot

Old shipping containers are being recycled and turned into pillars for Orlando's newest hot spot.

14 large metal shipping containers are about to become Lake Nona's newest entertainment spot. Jessi Blakley of Tavistock Development says that "Boxi Park is going to have a variety of restaurants and bars; it's really going to be an incubator for a concept."

Using old, repurposed containers, Blakley hopes to create something unique and different, giving Central Florida a new take on the old inside. 

Blakley says that "we're looking for folks who really want a testbed. A place where they can test their concepts, see if it's something that works." It'll serve as a preview to the high-tech, four-million square-foot town center slowly forming.

The spot will also have a dog park and playground.

Boxi Park is slated to open this December and Blakley hopes that "anybody can come anytime."
