An Indianapolis woman and her company unveiled plans for a boutique hotel made of shipping containers she’s planning to open in the Haughville neighborhood this summer. 

Robin Staten-Lanier, a new hotelier, is the owner of Tiny Urban Escapes, a hidden micro resort that would comprise of four semi-glass private luxury suites and private event space — all converted from upcycled-shipping containers.

The hotel will be located at 2214 W. Michigan St. near the Indianapolis Public Library Haughville branch. Tiny Urban Escapes is a Black-owned, female-led enterprise.  

“This goes beyond hospitality,” she said. “The intent is to transform communities, but also to use this space, almost as an igniter of additional economic development in this community.”

Construction is tentatively expected to be completed in the summer. Twenty-foot shipping containers will be converted into suites while the event space — called “The Scene” — will be made from a larger 40-foot shipping container. Each suite will have access to wellness and culinary experiences and on-demand concierge service.

Reclaiming shipping containers and transforming them into custom modular building projects has been a trend for some time. The containers are considered affordable, durable and eco-friendly construction materials.
