OLD SOUL, NEW LIFE

How a derelict Sydney icon was reimagined and transformed into a stunning new community.

Mungo Scott’s famous Flour Mill arrived in Summer Hill in 1922 with a cluster of functional milling and storage buildings. As Goodman Fielder grew the Mill’s capacity in the 1950s, it added the landmark silos to store even more of the key ingredients for Australia’s favourite loaves, creating a commanding and beloved presence over the surrounding suburban landscape.

With their impressive engineering and architectural feats, the silo structures became aesthetically and historically significant for Summer Hill residents. However, operations were wound up in 2009 and the highly visible Flour Mill in the heart of Summer Hill stood forlornly vacant until established developer EG Funds Management, in partnership with Daiwa House Australia proposed a stunning new residential development to breathe new life into the industrial site.

Introducing, the Flour Mill of Summer Hill – Summer Hill’s beating heart and newest residential community and retail hub.

Designed by award-winning architects, HASSELL, Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Flour Mill are complete with purchasers moving into the historic six pack Wheat Silos, and new buildings Bakers Rise, Bakers Quarters, Miller’s Retreat and new terrace homes.

The newly integrated public space Harvest Park and the highly anticipated Mungo Scott Plaza are now complete and open for public use creating unique open spaces and connectivity for the already vibrant Summer Hill community – a place to live, work and play.

On completion, the Flour Mill community will consist of 360 contemporary apartments and terraces, surrounded by beautifully landscaped communal gardens, retail and commercial spaces with direct footbridge access to the Lewisham West light rail and a short walk to Summer Hill train station.

Stages 3 & 4 are currently under construction – Buyers who missed out on purchasing in the Wheat Silo building is Stage 2 still have the opportunity to buy into the impressive Malthouse, Durum Silos, Granary and Wheatstore buildings.

Summer Hill’s New Foodie Precinct

The name might be staying the same, but change is afoot at Summer Hill’s old flour mill in Sydney’s inner west. In the 1920s, it was a hub of industry. In the 1950s, the towering silos became part of the skyline. By the time the space marks its centenary, it will have well and truly transformed into a residential and retail hub with its own foodie precinct.

Currently under construction, Flour Mill of Summer Hill will boast a village-like community space around a paved outdoor plaza filled with a curated mix of eating, dining and shopping options. Full details have yet to be revealed, but the project has just announced its first addition: natural food retailer The Farm Wholefoods, who’ll be bringing their ethically sourced and ecologically sustainable food fare to a new organic cafe.

Plus, with 14 buildings making up the development — which has been designed to repurpose as much of the existing industrial site as possible — they’ll have plenty of company. As well as other restaurants, cafes and stores, the revamped space will feature 360 apartments (including some built into the wheat silos) and park areas, plus close proximity to Summer Hill’s existing shops.
