Archives For Student Housing


To address the current student housing shortage in Johannesburg, South Africa, developers have converted unused grain silos into affordable student accommodations. Property developer citiq created ‘Mill Junction’ by stacking brightly colored shipping containers on top of silos. The height of the final building is nearly forty meters, offering the residents panoramic views of the city’s skyline.

The construction was completed in January and had already reached 1/3 occupancy just a few days after the units became available. In addition to living in a unique building, students benefit from the low prices, as well as study facilities, lounges, libraries, and computer labs.
