The last stage of the apartment project in Sydney’s Summer Hill, known as The Flour Mill, which innovates on the concept of the original flour mill there, will be launched officially on September 24.

The original flour mill was built by Mungo Scott in the 1920s. It was redesigned by HASSELL and developed by EG and Daiwa House. 

Construction on The Flour Mill began in early 2015 and the final stage will unveil 135 studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments located across the remaining buildings which comprise the Durum Silos, The Wheatstore and The Granary. 

The residential development comprises 360 apartments and terraces surrounded by landscaped communal gardens, retail spaces and easy access to the light rail and train station. 

Since its launch in 2014, Stage 1 and Stage 2 have sold completely. 

The four circular towers of the original wheat silos, dubbed the Durum Silos now form 56 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. 

The Wheatstore’s triangular structure stands out as the only design within the Flour Mill that started from scratch. It houses 27 two and three-bedroom apartments. 

EG’s development manager Raja Jamal said the focus was community and connectivity. 

Summer Hill hosts a strong, connected community and we are excited to bring together the new and the old residents,” says Jamal. 

“The new retail precinct and integrated communal public park will complement the vibrant high street and existing village atmosphere.” 

Collier’s International is marketing the project and has started taking enquiries for the last stage. 

Colliers’ residential director Ian Bennett said, “The majority of buyers in Stage 1 and 2 were locals looking to buy a piece of the area’s history, with investors and first home buyers looking at the one and two-bedroom apartments due to the connectivity with the light rail, train station and bus services all flanking the development,” said Bennett.

The Flour Mill’s completion scheduled for the end of 2018.
