Supporting your locals has never been easier.
The Junction is offering its residents exclusive discounts to try exciting independents and local favourite food, drink and shopping spots, all included in its rental packages.
If you’re unfamiliar with the new neighbourhood that’s popped up next to Wellington Place, it’s home to a whopping 665 apartments that come with near enough every amenity you’d add to your ‘must haves’ and ‘dream of’ list – including private dining rooms; multi-use sports pitch; super-fast broadband, built-in appliances; co-working spaces; and resident lounge areas, plus apartments that are totally pet-friendly.
All Junction residents are given a special ‘Junction Card’ upon moving into the neighbourhood and it allows you to celebrate your new surroundings and support your new local independents – but with extra perks and discounts.
Named Neighbourhood Heroes, the list includes hairdressers and lunch spots, coffee shops and cheesemongers, fitness centres and plant shops – mostly within a fifteen minute walk of The Junction with a few dotted around the suburbs.
Here’s just a few of the Neighbourhood Heroes where you can make the most of your Junction Card…
