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.
