Junction Housing

85 MAB Circuit, Tonsley SA 5042
Delivered by Schiavello

Junction Housing development

Construction will begin this month on 50 apartments at Tonsley in southern Adelaide as the Innovation District continues to expand its range of residential and retail offerings.

Schiavello, a national builder prominent in Adelaide and Melbourne, will lead the construction at the south-west corner of the Main Assembly Building which is expected to be completed by October 2025. A second stage of 63 apartments is on track to follow later this year.

The new building will include an office and 50 apartments which will be made up of eight studios, three disability compliant apartments, 17 one-bedroom apartments and 22 two-bedroom apartments across seven levels. Parking for this building is being provided as part of the development.

Much of the 50 apartments will be a mix of youth and social housing managed by Junction, a community housing provider which supports around 10,000 South Australians each year through housing and community services including many young people. Junction, which will work in tandem with the South Australia Housing Authority (SAHA), will also base its head office at the site.

Construction has been boosted by the federal Government’s $2 billion Social Housing Accelerator Program (SHAP) input announced last year. As part of the SHAP initiative, South Australia has received more than $135 million from the Commonwealth to deliver a minimum of 230 homes across the state.
