CONSTRUCTION

This section will be updated regularly to provide you with information on the progress of construction at The Flour Mill. Demolition was completed in August and construction began in September, 2015.

Stage Two | Construction updates | Oct 2017

It’s almost time, Stage Two! Your settlements are all coming together over the next month, so soon it will be time to move in and get to know your neighbours.

The Farm Wholefoods are fitting out the retail space facing Smith Street and it will not be long before you can enjoy the convenience of in-store and online shopping for the highest quality local and international foods. We also encourage you to make use of the GoGet cars parked in Flour Mill Way.

Once you have settled into the Flour Mill of Summer Hill we will be organising the inaugural Annual General Meeting for your strata scheme. This meeting will give the new owners the opportunity to be involved with the ongoing management of your building. We encourage residents and investor owners to become involved by contributing to protect your valuable investment. This is best achieved through your active involvement with the Owners Corporation.

Following unprecedented demand, we will shortly be announcing the successful tenants for the retails spaces within your strata scheme. We know that you will appreciate the quality of these retail spaces and the quality that this retail adds to the Flour Mill of Summer Hill community.

Construction Stages 3 and 4 | October 2017

Stages 3 and 4 are progressing well.

The excavation in Stage 3 has reached the bottom and now the concrete slab being poured for the foundations. You will see the structure coming out of the ground in the coming months.

A big milestone for Stage 3 is the cutting of the silo building, which started last month.

Meanwhile, Stage 4 has progressed a lot further, finishing up the basement and beginning on Level 1. The driveway bridge is currently being constructed over the Hawthorne Canal.

STAGE TWO | CONSTRUCTION UPDATES | JULY 2017

If you have been past the Flour Mill of Summer Hill lately, you may have noticed that the residents have moved into the Edward Street Terraces, Baker’s Quarters and Baker’s Rise. We look forward to welcoming you to the community soon!

If you have not done so already, we suggest that you contact your bank to commence the loan process. This may require a formal valuation that the bank will organise on your behalf. We will assist the valuer to gain access to your apartment to complete the valuation.

Once your loan is approved, the bank will be ready for settlement. We will be inviting you to carry out your pre-settlement inspections in advance of settlement to give the builder time to complete any defects prior to settlement. Your solicitor will provide you with more information about the settlement process and what will need to be done prior to and on the day of settlement. At this stage, settlement is scheduled for September and we are looking forward to continually updating you with progress leading up to you becoming the owner of your new apartment.

STAGE ONE | CONSTRUCTION UPDATES | JULY 2017

Welcome to Stage 1 of the Flour Mill of Summer Hill, who are the first residents. You’re finally here!

We hope you’re having fun setting up your new home and enjoyed your gifts from EG.

We are very proud of the quality of the design and construction of the building and pleased to be handing over the apartments to the new owners.

The Annual General Meeting will give the new owners the opportunity to be involved with the ongoing management of the Edward Street Terraces, Barker’s Quarters and Baker’s Rise and how the residents and visitors experience the Flour Mill of Summer Hill.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with the development and in particular Catherine Maude from People and Property, Strata Plus for their invaluable advice and Havencab for their initial assistance with helping the new residents. If there is anything that you wish to know about the building or how it works there is plenty on great information in your apartment manual including the details of who to contact if you need any further information.

We hope you enjoy exploring the Flour Mill of Summer Hill and enjoy living within your new community.

Stage 3 and 4 | Construction Updates | April 2017

Welcome Stage 3 and 4 to the second quarterly construction update.

Last quarter, we put out a tender for the construction of Stages 3 and 4 and we’re pleased to announce that Richard Crookes has won the contract.

Richard Crookes Construction (RCC) are a private, family-owned builder with an impressive track record. They are known for delivering high quality apartments with personal care and consideration for the local community.

Stage Two | Construction Updates | March 2017

Not long now, Stage Two.

This quarter we said goodbye to the second crane on site, signalling our progression into the final stages of construction. You might have noticed the scaffolding coming down from the silos on the Smith St side of the site. It looks amazing! These silos make for a pretty striking piece of architecture. You’ll really be living in one of Sydney’s most iconic developments.

If you want to know what’s headed your way, you can start with following the Stage One updates – they’re just a little bit ahead of you.

Colliers, your solicitors and your bank will all be in touch over the next few months to help you finalise your new apartment.

Stage One | Construction Updates | April 2017

Congratulations Stage One! You’re approaching the finish line.

EG and Colliers team are here to make the process as stress free as possible. If you haven’t done this already, now is the time to get in contact with your bank to commence the loan process. This may require a formal valuation that the bank will organise on your behalf. We will assist the valuer to gain access to the apartments.

Once your loan is approved your bank will be ready for settlement.

You should have received an invitation from Colliers for your pre-settlement inspections so that any confirmed defects can be rectified by the builder. Your solicitor can provide you with more information about the settlement process and what will need to be done on the day of settlement.
