About the Mungo Scott Building

Summer Hill’s famous Mungo Scott building in the Flour Mill of Summer Hill precinct has been an icon of Sydney’s inner west skyline for nearly 100 years.

It was first opened in 1922 by Australian miller Mungo Scott Ltd and used as a processing facility for wheat until 2009.

Recently refurbished after standing vacant for nearly a decade, the iconic, six-storey- landmark is now available for hire, temporary occupation or ongoing use.

Modern design features such as polished concrete floors, recycled hardwoods and a fresh colour palette, along with bespoke furniture in the adjoining forecourt, has resulted in a heritage space like no other.  

A beautiful hybrid between old and new, the conversion retains the original brick envelope and stunning timber columns and beams, along with several historic elements, retaining the original character of the building.

An alluring mix of soaring ceilings and natural light make this venue perfect for all types of events, activations or community initiatives, for both temporary or ongoing use, including:

  • Art exhibitions

  • Fashion shows

  • Recreational uses

  • Temporary creative spaces

  • Maker spaces

  • Charity and fundraiser events

  • F&B showcases

  • Dining/hospitality pop-ups

About the Flour Mill of Summer Hill precinct


Located just 7 kilometres from the Sydney CBD, The Flour Mill of Summer Hill precinct is easily accessible by both public transport and car, with Lewisham and Summer Hill train stations and the Lewisham West light rail station close by.

The Mungo Scott building forms part of the 2.4-hectare Flour Mill of Summer Hill precinct, a residential project supported by commercial and retail offering, completed in early 2019 by EG and Daiwa House Australia.

Comprising 360 residential apartments across 11 separate buildings, over 750 residents call the Flour Mill of Summer Hill home, with The Mungo Scott Building the proud centrepiece of the plaza and community park.

The Flour Mill precinct hosted Sydney’s famous Grains Festival, first held in July 2018. The event was a celebration of the site’s original purpose, bringing together over 30 bakers, brewers and makers from the inner west.
