Joseph Nahas and Jamie Durie Act As A Team To Rejuvenate Georges River Where The Paper Mill Is Located
According to Joseph Nahas, Coronation Property has selected the famed media personality and world-renowned horticulturalist and landscape designer Jamie Durie to design the George River banks, the area where their mixed-used development, The Paper Mills, is located. The development is a residential project that aims to provide Liverpool with a new approach towards living an urban life on the bank of the Georges River. It will feature 1,045 apartments across different buildings. These contemporary residences will offer a vibrant and welcoming community for Liverpool’s diverse families. This project will help Liverpool become a true “river city” and that is only a short drive away from Sydney’s new second airport at Badgery’s Creek.
The Liverpool City Council has been tasked to design the boardwalk along the river bank. This was part of the Georges River landscape proposal. This pathway will encourage the locals and visitors to access the river’s waterside activity. Both sides of the boardwalk will also be planted with native plant species to rejuvenate the landscape and to improve native floral and aquatic life in the area as well as promote stability to the river bank and lessen the possibility of erosion.
Coronation Property will cover the expenses for the landscaping project, which is worth $6.5 million. The local and state government does not have to spend a dime for its completion. The boardwalk that Urban Design, SJB has created for the entire The Paper Mill precinct will link the riverside to the Liverpool Railway Station through a shared community pathway. Jamie Durie will be assigned to the design of the precinct down to the connection to the boardwalk, which will include the creation of a children’s playground, relandscaping the Light Horse Park on the North, and the Mill Park on the South of boardwalk. The site plan is also looking to connect The Paper Mill buildings and boardwalk precinct.
Joseph Nahas said Coronation Property aims to deliver The Paper Mill community with a connection between an indoor and outdoor lifestyle that the residents will love. About 3,000 people will reside in The Paper Mill once it is fully completed and fully booked. They will all have direct access to the river and they will get the chance to participate in vibrant river activities, both on and beside the water. The company aims for the project to be the catalyst for the revitalization of Liverpool and help reorient the residents towards the river.
The company also wants to transform the Liverpool into a true “river city” and it is extremely proud to be the sole financial backer of the section’s transformation. Coronation Property believes that this great project will be the first step in reviving the western-Sydney’s mindset into taking advantage of its river asset. The company realized that this project is a great opportunity for the private sector to give back to the community through this amazing amenity and smart public domain.
Jamie Durie, when asked, said that he was extremely excited that his international landscape and architecture and design business was awarded the landscape masterplan tender. For a bit of a background, his firm has worked on various commercial projects across the world like the Victorian Arts Centre precinct, Westmead Children’s Hospital, Sheraton Salobre Golf and Spa Resort and Hayman Island Resort. Durie believed that Coronation Property’s project is a fantastic idea. He thinks it will open up the foreshore by giving the public access to the beauty of Georges River in general. He was pleased to say that it was good news that the river is being utilized better as it is an extremely fantastic feature of Liverpool.
