The redevelopment of western Sydney’s The Paper Mill by Coronation Property will see the heritage-listed mill building in Liverpool repurposed as an open plan dining venue.
Joe Nahas, Managing Director of Coronation Property said retailers, overseen by a single operator, can be envisaged as traditional ‘stalls’ which include an artisanal bakery and cafe, a rotisserie, woodfired pizza kitchen, inhouse brewery, private dining and kids play area.
“This space, complete with dessert carts and open fireplaces, will be Liverpool’s destination dining spot – a modern-day bistro that reflects the values of slow living: cultivating community, simplifying our lives and reclaiming time for what matters most,” he said.
“The retail precinct at The Paper Mill will be a vibrant community zone, comprising approximately 1,400 square metres of premium retail space in a contemporary open-plan setting with exposed ceilings and concrete flooring.
“Ultimately, we’d like to emulate the buzzing retail and food culture that areas such as Balmain, Newtown or Surry Hills provide.
The mill building is expected to open by the end of 2017.
The regeneration of The Paper Mill precinct includes the construction of 882 apartments on the site, across four contemporary buildings – The Paper Mill, The Bindery, The Gild and The Foundry.
Mr Nahas says The Paper Mill will be a significant drawcard for residents of both Liverpool and wider Sydney.
“The Paper Mill will connect the indoor and outdoor lifestyle that people love, and once it is fully occupied, the precinct will be home to around 3,000 people who will enjoy the amenity on offer, in addition to Liverpool locals and visitors from other parts of Sydney,” he said.
“Liverpool already ticks a lot of boxes for infrastructure, and there’s more on the way, with the region set to benefit from $7 billion in infrastructure investment over the coming decade.
“This is why Liverpool is fast shaping up to be one of the most desirable locations for young buyers to live in Sydney.”
The site’s industrial history began in 1864, when The Australian Paper Company purchased 17 acres of the Collingwood estate in Liverpool.
