Four Brave Women at The Trading Circle

More than just your average café, the soon to open Four Brave Women is run by refugee women. Every couple of weeks, a different team will take over the kitchen to prepare and cook food from their culture. The café is an initiative of the Trading Circle, a non-profit organisation that aims to empower women in developing countries to lift themselves out of poverty. The goal is to be able to provide opportunities for refugees to improve their skills and to learn more about running their own business. At the same time, it’s also an opportunity for the locals to get to know the refugees and to learn more about their culture.

For their first set of menus, Ethiopian-inspired breakfast and coffee will be served Mondays to Fridays from 6:30 am to 9:30 am. For lunch and dinner, the café will serve a Persian buffet on Tuesdays to Sundays from 11 am to 2 pm and 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm respectively.

Watch out for their grand opening on the evening of the 6th of April, Friday.

Located at 26 Lackey Street, Four Brave Women and The Trading Circle is just a couple of blocks away from the Flour Mill. Follow them on Facebook and on Instagram or check out their website to learn more about the organisation.

STAGE 4 | CONSTRUCTION UPDATES | APRIL 2018

If you have not been down to the Flour Mill of Summer Hill recently, we do encourage you to visit the new display suite that has been opened at the corner of Flour Mill Way. The new display has a great fresh feel to it that reflects the energy that has been built up with the opening of Harvest Park and Mungo Scott Plaza. The long awaited opening of The Farm Wholefoods is now not far off following delays in Council with the DA approval for their fit-out. You will soon be able to pick up your organic coffee, cold pressed juice, and Acai bowls and enjoy them in the neighbouring Harvest Park.

We are very pleased to let you know that the roof of the Malthouse building has now been completed and the windows are currently being installed. At the same time, the external brickwork is being laid behind the scaffold surrounding the building. Also being carried out behind the scaffold is the completion of the first apartment fitout.

We have been working with the builder to carry out the final check on site of the quality of the apartment construction. We do this by fast tracking one of the ground floor apartments well ahead of the remaining ones so that we can inspect all the fine details of the design and construction of the interiors. This way we are able to iron out all those minor defects and workmanship issues before they are repeated in other apartments.

With the roof being installed, we can now more accurately forecast the completion date of the building and it is looking likely that settlements will occur late this year. As construction progresses, we will be able to provide a more accurate forecast and to narrow down the expected settlement date.

We are very pleased to let you know that construction has been progressing very well in all areas and it won’t be long before the buildings are ‘topped out’ with the completion of the roof slab. The conversion of the silos continue to throw up unique challenges with the construction. But each issue is being quickly dealt with by the builder to ensure that these homes keep their unique qualities.

Although it’s still in the early phases, we still expect construction to be completed early next year with settlements in the first quarter of the year. As construction progresses, we will be able to provide a more accurate forecast and to narrow down the expected settlement date.
