FROM THE ARCHIVES
Remember SG Blocks? They're the company making sturdy, resilient structures for multiple end uses by repurposing shipping containers, profiled in this space last September. This week they built a container-based open-air bar (pictured) and a hotel room mock-up for Marriott's Moxy Hotels. The prototypes were revealed at The Americas Lodging Investment Summit on the grounds of Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE in California.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
"Founded in 1975 in Princeton, N.J., The Boyd Co. is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Add a few years to 40 and that's how long I have been a reader of Site Selection — a best-in-class publication by far."
