The Pa­per Mill

What is it: Tramsheds for Greater West­ern Syd­ney When will it open? End of 2017

Time Out (Sydney) - - FUTURE SYDNEY -

The apart­ments con­nected to this new res­i­den­tial hub are al­ready on do­main. com.au for up­wards of half a mil­lion bucks, but it’s not nest­ing that piques our in­ter­est – it’s the prom­ise of new food and booze out­lets within the saw­tooth roofs of the for­mer mill. The $7 bil­lion de­vel­op­ment is rein­vent­ing the Liver­pool Pa­per Mill (which closed in 1905 and made way for a wool fac­tory till the ’70s) by cre­at­ing three hous­ing groups: the Foundry, the Bin­dery and the Gild, which all ap­pear to be get­ting rooftop pools. It’s ris­ing up on the banks of Ge­orges River, ap­prox­i­mately ten min­utes from Liver­pool train sta­tion (and one stop from Ca­sula Pow­er­house Arts Cen­tre). And though the re­tail­ers are yet to be con­firmed, the de­vel­op­ers have pegged 1,400m2 for open-air din­ing, community gar­dens, farm­ers’ markets, cafés and shops. It’s due to open by the end of 2017 – one year ahead of the com­ple­tion date for sim­i­lar res­i­den­tial/re­tail hub the Flour Mill in Sum­mer Hill.
