Mirvac Group (Mirvac) has joined forces with cultural start-up Yerrabingin to create an indigenous rooftop farm at South Everleigh in central Sydney. 

Bill as Australia’s first indigenous urban food production farm, it will be situated on the rooftop of Building 3 at South Eveleigh (previously known as Australian Technology Park), Mirvac’s new technology and innovation precinct.

Combining the principles of permaculture, indigenous knowledge and design thinking, the rooftop farm is just one of the projects Yerrabingin will deliver and manage at South Eveleigh.

Plans are also underway for the group to establish the South Eveleigh Aboriginal cultural landscape garden, which will grow native and medicinal plant species and bush food.

The vision for the revitalised South Eveleigh precinct has been co-created by Mirvac, anchor tenant Commonwealth Bank, and consortium partners, AMP Capital, Sunsuper and Centuria Property Funds.

Neighbouring Redfern, Eveleigh is located about three kilometres south of the Sydney central business district.

The scheme was the brainchild of Clarence Stockee, his business partner Christian Hampson, and developer Mirvac, which has been redeveloping the ATP precinct since 2016.

Mirvac had reportedly been planning a regular rooftop garden for the 500-square-metre area on top of one of its buildings.
