HASSELL is advising EG Funds Management on the reinvigoration and regeneration of a former heritage flour mill, including industrial silo structures, for mixed uses and community benefit. The site will provide new residential facilities in the emerging suburbs of Summer Hill and Lewisham in inner-western Sydney. The vibrant mix of proposed uses such as cafes, studios and small retail opportunities will increase activity levels and pedestrian traffic as well as safety and security in the area.The Summer Hill Flour Mills master plan presents a rare opportunity to retain and reuse much of the existing industrial fabric of the precinct. The landscaping will introduce open spaces with pedestrian links through the site to access a light rail transport service, currently under construction.The industrial history of the area provides a unique and authentic character, creating a public domain that celebrates its past and provides for its future. Together with other renewal projects on the site, the revitalisation of the Summer Hill Four Mills and its surrounds has the potential to be the public heart for the local community.
