The development of the industrial sector saw an establishment of unique architectural designs. Consequently, the concept of industrial heritage has been embraced by various entities to conserve the built environment and landscape. Adaptive reuse is a strategy to prevent the disposal of such structures.

The focus is on the Flour Mill located in Newtown and Pier 8/9 Walsh Bay, Sydney.

The Four Mill that was made in the nineteenth century is located near the railway line. The importance of the building is enhanced by its location in a notable industrial heritage location. Development in the area is beneficial to the community offering affordable studio space where small businesses can be established…
