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.

HARVEST PARK FESTIVAL A GREAT SUCCESS

A huge thank you to everyone that took the opportunity to meet some of your new neighbours and existing residents from Bakers Quarters, Millers Retreat and the Wheat Silos at the Harvest Park festival.

The festival offered some great live music, a pop-up picnic and great drinks topped off with fresh gelato cones.

The weather was perfect for the festivities and we expect this to be the first of many community events that will be hosted in the park.

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.

Welcome Party!

Join us on Sunday 12 November as we welcome the new residents of Stage 2 to the Flour Mill community!

We will be throwing a little welcome party at Harvest Park at The Flour Mill of Summer Hill from 2pm to 5pm. See you there! ️
