Shipping Containers become cheap housing for students

Innovation in the usage of shipping containers is at its peak in Newtown in Johannesburg, South Africa where Citiq Property Developers have combined abandoned properties and re-purposed materials to create affordable and cheap housing for students studying in varsities and colleges around the area..

According to Citiq, the conversion of Mill Junction, to student accommodation started at the beginning of 2013 and was completed in early 2014, just in time for the new student intake.. Mill Junction, was constructed out of two former grain silos topped with four floors of colorful shipping containers sourced from various shipping lines.. This secure complex offers local university students quality, reasonably-priced living quarters..

The Mill Junction Project, is reported to be able to accommodate around 400 students and is equipped with communal kitchens, free WiFi, study areas, a gym and various recreation rooms..

Enjoy the pictures showing the innovative usage of the containers..

If anyone else have any other stories pertaining to innovative and alternative uses of shipping containers, please do share..
