The final stage of The Flour Mill of Summer Hill has arrived.
The release of the Durum Silos, The Wheatstore and The Granary set to officially launch on September 24.
Flour Mill Master Planned Community Brightens Summer Hill]Developed by EG and Daiwa House, the residential development in the heart of Summer Hill is located on the heritage Flour Mill industrial site with 360 contemporary apartments and terraces surrounded by communal gardens, retail and commercial spaces and easy access to the new light rail and two train station.
Since launching in 2014, this will be the last opportunity for purchasers to buy into the development which takes cues from the city’s rich industrial heritage, as stage one and stage two of the development are completely sold.
The final stage will unveil 135 premium studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments located across the remaining buildings which comprise the Durum Silos, The Wheatstore and The Granary.
The four circular towers of the original wheat silos, dubbed the Durum Silos now form 56 contemporary apartments across 14 storeys, at the peak of which sit two penthouse apartments with roof terraces enjoying 360 degree views.
The Granary has been converted to one and two bedroom apartments that mimic the scale of the original buildings on this site. An open glass façade on the northern side makes an interesting contrast with the heritage appeal of the nearby Mungo Scott building, while the continuous textured façade slowly reveals the interior through layers of perforated mesh.
Finally, housing 27 two and three bedroom apartments, The Wheatstore’s triangular structure stands out as the only design within the Flour Mill that started from scratch. The deliberately random placement of floor to ceiling windows creates novelty within the charcoal concrete façade.
EG Development Manager Raja Jamal said a key focus is an emphasis on community and connectivity.
“Summer Hill hosts a strong, connected community and we are excited to bring together the new and the old residents,” he said.
“The new retail precinct and integrated communal public park will complement the vibrant high street and existing village atmosphere.”
The Flour Mill is moments to Summer Hill Village and will have its own light rail station for easy access to the Leichhardt, Glebe, Pyrmont, the CBD and beyond.
Summer Hill and Lewisham train stations are both just 5-minute walks away.
Construction of The Flour Mill at Summer Hill is well underway with completion scheduled for the end of 2018.
