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.

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.
