Mill Junction was opened this month in Johannesburg in response to the lack of student housing in the area. The affordable student housing complex comprises of 375 individual apartments, in addition to the study facilities, libraries, computer rooms and lounges. The building is made up of shipping containers and silos, using vibrant colors creating a new colorful addition to the Johannesburg skyline. It is currently towering above the neighboring buildings at nearly forty meters, offering panoramic views for the student residents. The property developers, Citiq, converted the city’s unused grain silos and shipping containers into affordable student accommodations, similar to the Dekalb Market here in Brooklyn or Pier 57 in Chelsea.
