Spanning an entire city block, the masterplan is of a larger regeneration of the downtown area, forming a link between its local community and the Georges River waterfront.
The Paper Mill is a series of high-rise residences, ground floor laneway apartments and townhouses, within a verdant and amenity-rich setting. Landscaped gardens and pedestrian pathways weave through the permeable grounds, connecting to new retail and dining spaces.

At the heart of the development is the adaptive re-use of the Paper Mill building itself—one of the only surviving early-20th-century industrial buildings in Liverpool. Restored externally, the building has been renewed internally to provide retail and formal dining space alongside farmer’s markets, cafés, pop-up shops and public workshops for the public to enjoy.
The three residential structures—the Paper Mill tower, the Bindery and the Guild—mediate the typical riverside typology and the future high-density scale of the area, with low podiums inhabiting the transitional scale. Constructed predominantly of brick and weathered steel, the buildings all share a language of materials inspired by the site’s historical context. Stone and metal panels vary in color and pattern to lend each address a unique identity.
