Joe Nahas, SJB, Coronation Property Join Forces To Bring Liverpool’s Georges River Precinct Back To Life
Joe Nahas, the Managing Director of Coronation Property, was very pleased to say that their company is committed to giving The Paper Mill community with a connection between indoor and outdoor lifestyle, a project that they will surely benefit from. Nahas added that around 3,000 residents will get access to the river once The Paper Mill is completed and fully occupied. The locals will also have access to various enjoyable activities either on or beside the water. In addition to that, Nahas also reiterated that Coronation Property aims for the project to help revitalize Liverpool and improve the vibrancy towards the river.
Joseph Nahas also added that the company wishes to make Liverpool as a true “river city.” Coronation Property is also proud to take on a significant part in the area’s makeover. The Australian development firm believes that the project will be a significant step towards helping Western-Sydney realize that river asset’s importance and the benefits that it will bring to Liverpool once it is finished. The company believes in the river’s great potential. Because of this, the company wishes for this project to become an opportunity to help the community by giving them access to a smart and integrated public domain and amenity.
One of the main priorities of this project is to prevent or reduce the possibility of soil erosion and improve the stability of the riverbank. Coronation Property wants this natural asset to be preserved, and to protect and improve the river so future generations would still enjoy the magnificent beauty. The company also believes that the river is yet to reach its full potential and still needs help for it to be able to maximize its natural beauty. These are only some of the best reasons why Coronation Property is taking on this project to protect the natural habitat and even make it bigger so that various aquatic river creatures can live in it.
The rejuvenation project will be privately funded by Coronation Property and its will cost around a whopping $6.5 million. The local or the state government does not have to pay for anything at all. SJB designed a boardwalk for The Paper Mill precinct and that will be used to connect the riverside precinct to the Liverpool Railway Station. Jonathan Knapp, the Director of Urban Design described the rejuvenation of the Paper Mill precinct as transformative. He said it would unlock the Georges River foreshore and become a recreational place for tourists and locals alike. He also noted that Coronation Property strived to raise the benchmark for this kind of design. Furthermore, he added that the company and his team were extremely ecstatic to have worked on the project and this helped them create stunning structures and landscapes. They were also happy to have had the chance to work with the likes of Woods Bagot and Jamie Durie, both renowned in the field of architecture and landscape designs, respectively. This collaboration played a vital part in coming up with the plan for the development of a true riverfront community.
The Paper Mill is set to become a perfect example of renewing an urban area and redeveloping nonoperational industrial sites and turn them into high quality mixed-use residential precincts. Joseph Nahas said the project will include the creation of a retail precinct. It will be the go-to place for locals and tourists who wish to go shopping or find a place to dine in. It will cover 1,400 square meters and will be housed in a converted 19th-century warehouse.
