Putting shipping containers to work for small businesses. 

Industrial, meet inventive.

Inspired by Boxyard Tulsa, this 15,000 square-foot cargotecture is the first of its kind in North Carolina's bustling epicenter for startups and brainy talent. Boxyard RTP provides a unique year-round dining and shopping experience with opportunities to connect with each other safely.

Your retreat before, during and after the workday.

Grab fresh brewed coffee before a zoom meeting or enjoy craft local beer with friends after work. Bop your head to live, local music while you shop, or join in a pop-up yoga class on the deck.

The first dining and retail in Research Triangle Park

RTP has been home to innovative companies since its inception in 1959. With 300+ companies on campus today, the Park continues to convene people, connections and ideas that lead to some of the world's exciting breakthroughs.

Among those ideas shines Boxyard RTP, a place where coworkers and members of the surrounding Triangle communities can meet, eat, connect and unwind inside the Park. Central to RTP and the Triangle Region, Boxyard RTP provides a platform for emerging entrepreneurs in the food, hospitality, retail and events industries. The venue includes an indoor-outdoor gathering space, dog park and performance stage with a robust event program featuring music, fitness classes, comedy nights and more.
