By Julia Hughes With its tree-lined streets, Federation homes, and locals cafes Summer Hill is one of Sydney's hidden gems. A new housing development on the suburb's 1920s flour mill site is breathing new life into the area while respecting its old-Sydney heritage and village feel. 141104-summer-hill-silo-hero-final-5000 Launched at the end of 2014 with stages 1 and 2 already sold-out, Collier's The Flour Mill at Summer Hill development by EG and Daiwa House offers 360 premium apartments and terraces surrounded by beautifully landscaped communal gardens, shops and easy access to the new fast light rail. Designed by award-winning architects, HASSELL, design for The Flour Mill incorporates and reflects the landmark silos to retain the site's remarkable heritage and form.


The four circular towers of the original wheat silos, dubbed the Durum Silos now form 56 apartments across 14 levels, with two penthouse apartments enjoying 360-degree views of the city skyline. The one, two and three bedroom apartments of the Granary and the Wheatstore also make use of the site's industrial features with galvanised steel, off-form concrete, weathered timber and brick materials and detailing to giving a contemporary twist to the industrial buildings. summer-hill-v15_ext_final_2000 Each apartment in The Flour Mill has been cleverly designed to bring the outside in " balconies and windows carefully placed to provide an interesting outlook from every aspect while maximising natural light and airflow. Interiors across all apartments offer a distinctive monochromatic palette with a choice of black or white while timber floors add natural warmth. 141103-summer-hill-silo-living-final-2000 With an average size of 88sqm the Flour Mill apartments are also larger than the typical city dwelling, attracting young families and downsizers. EG Development Manager Raja Jamal says a key focus of this unique development is the emphasis on community and connectivity. "We have integrated a communal public park featuring existing mature avenues of brush box and a new retail precinct which includes cafà ©s, restaurants and retail offerings to complement Summer Hill's existing village atmosphere," said Mr Jamal. summer-hill-v12_ext_final_2000 Collier's International Residential Director Ian Bennett agrees Summer Hill's village feel is a big draw card for new residents. "The connectivity is great with the light rail, train station and bus services all flanking the development," he says. "But Summer Hill's village feel and sense of community has really attracted buyers." The Flour Mill is just 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 a short walk from the new development. v14-master-plan
