The landmark Mungo Scott building in Summer Hill in Sydney's inner west is set to be leased after a contemporary transformation.

The five level commercial office tower had been an operating flour mill before production ceased in 2009.

The building dates back to 1922 when it was built by Mungo Scott. The cluster of functional milling and storage buildings were taken over by Allied Mills in the 1950s.

Now the commercial premises forms part of the EG Funds & Daiwa House Flour Mill Development which comprises over 400 apartments.

Refurbishment work on the building’s interior is now being finalised, with the offices expected to be ready for occupancy later this year.

Original structural and architectural features such as timber posts and girders and exposed ceilings have been retained as part of the office design.

JLL's Guy Baseby said the space will suit a range of users, including medical, education and fitness businesses, but is most likely to appeal to creative occupiers.  

“The design and fit-out will have a community feel that aims to encourage collaboration."

Some equipment from the Mill will also be preserved and displayed in the space as part of the refurbishment.

Surrounding commercial spaces suggest the market price will range from $400-$600 per sqm net.

Colliers International agents James Cowan, Jordan McConnell and Chrios Baltussen are marketing the property for lease in conjunction with JLL's Guy Baseby.

Cowan said the commercial space would suit a range of businesses.  

“This building is a rare opportunity to secure premium office accommodation in a convenient inner-western location,” he said.

“The added benefit of this property, and what makes it unique, is the versatility in occupation ranging from medical and fitness, to architectural and tech. We are already fielding a high level of enquiry.”

Colliers Jordan McConnell called the property a trophy asset.

"The property certainly falls within the trophy asset category and will definitely be a statement to any incoming tenant," he said.

"Having a history dating back to 1922 and recently undergoing a meticulous renovation we expect demand to be high and the suites to be snapped up quickly.”
