Parramatta Square

The $2 billion Parramatta Square is set to become a visionary, world-class landmark and destination in the heart of the Parramatta CBD.

The iconic new addition to the city skyline will showcase the best of civic and commercial design from internationally acclaimed architects, while incorporating smart city principles to deliver a dynamic and innovative environment for people who work, live and visit Sydney’s geographical centre.

Located across a prime three-hectare Parramatta city block, it will comprise six new buildings and a refurbished Town Hall, linked by 20,000sqm of public domain that will serve as an important place to meet, trade, shop, dine, learn, celebrate and connect. 

Parramatta Square was the first local government development registered to achieve Green Star – Communities certification, and City of Parramatta has set a goal for all six buildings within the project to meet a 5 Star Green Star ratings target.

City of Parramatta is committed to striving for this independent demonstration of Parramatta Square’s social, economic and environmental sustainability.
 

01 Parramatta Square

The stunning $220 million Parramatta city campus for Western Sydney University (WSU) is the new home for students from the School of Business.

The striking campus building is the result of a City of Parramatta Council design competition won by leading architectural firm Architectus.

Designed to achieve a 5 Star Green Star rating for sustainable building design, construction and/or performance, distinct features of the vertical campus include a triangular atrium to draw light into the building’s centre, a roof terrace with breakout areas and views to the north and east; and a triple-height lobby on the Macquarie Street side, flanked by a timber screen and the glass façade of an elevator.

The CBD campus is designed to promote close relationships with the business community, enabling WSU to expand and leverage its research expertise, and expose students to unique learning and career opportunities. 

WSU has partnered with PWC, one of the largest professional services firms in Australia, to locate about 200 staff at the campus. In addition, WaterNSW, Australia’s largest water supplier, also plan to move to 1 Parramatta Square by the end of 2017.
 

03 Parramatta Square

National Australia Bank has confirmed plans to relocate approximately 3,000 workers to the commercial tower at 3 Parramatta Square from 2020.

The 16-level, 3 Parramatta Square building will set a new benchmark for commercial offices in Parramatta. 

Designed by acclaimed architectural firm Johnson Pilton Walker, the building will feature one of the largest floorplates across the precinct, delivering A-Grade commercial office space, retail and childcare facilities. A central atrium will draw natural light into the public areas and workspaces. 
 

04 & 06 Parramatta Square

The twin commercial towers by award-winning architectural firm Johnson Pilton Walker – striking in their presence and stature on Parramatta Square – will redefine office life for the digital age. 

The towers will include tenant suites, an auditorium and conferencing space, childcare facilities, and a commercial catering kitchen. 

The retail element will incorporate a range of dining options – from cafes to fine dining - that will flow out onto the public domain and activate the outdoor space. 

The State Government has announced it will lease 62,000sqm of A-Grade office space in 4 Parramatta Square. The building will accommodate 4,000 public service roles, including the Department of Planning and Environment, Office of Environment and Heritage, Environment Protection Authority and Department of Finance, Services and Innovation.

05 Parramatta Square

The new civic and community building for City of Parramatta Council is sure to become a must-see destination for visitors to Parramatta.

Designed by an international consortium of French firm Manuelle Gautrand Architecture and Australian firms DesignInc and Lacoste + Stevenson, the project will cover six storeys, encapsulating and extending above the historic Town Hall with a cantilevered structure providing a platform for the Council Chambers. 

Core to the design is also a stack of transparent glass that gradually rises to the north-east with a large LED screen for public art projections. 

Council’s detailed community engagement processes have helped inform the interior design for this inspirational and innovative new building.

As a result, 5 Parramatta Square has been deliberately designed to be efficient, flexible and dynamic - capable of adapting for a range of uses. Just some of the spaces to be included will be a library, roof garden, visitor experience centre and versatile meeting and function rooms.
 
The transparent nature of this unique design is a key element that sets it apart from its neighbours on Parramatta Square, and is a reflection of Council’s desire to create a civic space that is engaging, functional, connected, innovative, and truly built for the people.

5 Parramatta Square is expected to be delivered in 2020.
 

08 Parramatta Square

The unique design of 8 Parramatta Square - also known as Aspire Tower – will create an iconic building that will be highly recognised in the Parramatta skyline and will add a new vibrancy in the heart of Parramatta.
 
City of Parramatta Council has agreed to explore changing the predominant use of 8 Parramatta Square from residential to commercial due to an increased demand for premium office space in the CBD. This will be subject to approval from the newly-elected Councillors.

Public Domain

Parramatta Square’s public space will be a lively and engaging connection between the world-class buildings that surround it. It will also be an important gathering place, destination and transit area for the many people who move through Parramatta on a daily basis.
 
To be used by thousands of residents, visitors and workers every day, the public domain will not only be home to a new state-of-the-art library and civic centre, but its design will incorporate many smart city principles that enable the best of the world’s cities to run efficiently and seamlessly to improve the daily experience. 

Archaeological digs across the site have revealed important remnants of Parramatta’s First Australian and European heritage. These will be captured through a range of interpretations and references throughout the precinct, acknowledging the role the site of Parramatta Square played in Australia’s earliest and ongoing history.

Community feedback has been integral to enhancing initial design plans, resulting in the current Parramatta Square Public Domain Reference Design. City of Parramatta Council will now move ahead with seeking approvals on this proposed design.
 

Civic Link

Civic Link is a realisation of Council’s ambition to create green, liveable streets. Considered the largest public domain project after Parramatta Square and the river foreshore upgrade, Civic Link will provide a vibrant, cultural spine that connects and activates key elements of the CBD.

Civic Link aspires to manage the challenges faced by an urban river city including urban heat, flood management, as well as the growing demands on waste, water and energy infrastructure. The corridor draws inspiration from internationally-acclaimed public spaces such as the High Line in New York and Las Ramblas in Barcelona. It will celebrate specific heritage items in the CBD, including the Roxy Theatre. 

Civic Link will cover four city blocks and encourage a new arts and cultural precinct to flourish with fine-grain spaces for local businesses, small bars and cafes and collaborative work. The design aims to increase safety by providing more space for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles that pass through the area. Importantly, it will also improve access and connections between the ferry wharf and the CBD.

City River Strategy

From the Darug people to early European settlers, Parramatta River has always played an important role in history. Like many other cities around the world, Parramatta has gradually turned its back on the river foreshore.

The City of Parramatta is leading an initiative to reclaim the waterway of the Parramatta River for the community; to create a place for walking, swimming, picnics, and events; a cool respite from the bustling city. Having a strategic plan is essential to realising this vision.

The Parramatta City River Strategy positions the river at the heart of the City’s redevelopment. It proposes a vibrant public domain which seamlessly knits together a collection of world class buildings, including the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and a revitalised Riverside Theatres. Along the foreshore, a series of major public places including River Square and a renewed Parramatta Quay will provide space for events, connect to key destinations such as Parramatta Square, and welcome people who live, work and visit Parramatta.
 


 

...

Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences

The centrepiece of Riverbank will be the new iconic, state-of-the-art Museum of Applied Arts and Science (MAAS), due to open in 2022 through a joint project with the NSW Government and MAAS. Offering easy access for pedestrians and close to a variety of public transport options, it will house the relocated Powerhouse Museum.

Considered a major drawcard for local and international visitors, the world-class cultural institution will showcase how technology, engineering, science and design impact Australia and the world. Importantly, the Museum will be integrated as part of the wider Riverbank precinct and will form part of Council's vision to deliver an outstanding cultural, entertainment, retail and residential hub. that the community will enjoy for decades to come.

Precinct Development

Although the Parramatta CBD is experiencing significant urban renewal and record investment, a number of precincts in the city surrounds are considered strategically important.

Camellia, situated 1.5 kilometres east of the CBD, represents great strategic value in terms of its size, location and opportunities for future development and renewal. The precinct is approximately 321 hectares and is home to a number of significant industrial businesses. A long term vision for Camellia includes a new town centre with homes and jobs, located on the future Parramatta Light Rail route.  More information can found on the DP&E website

Healthcare is one of Australia's largest and fastest growing industries. The Westmead Health and Medical Research precinct, just north of the CBD, represents the largest concentration of health, education and research facilities in Australia and provides over 18,000 specialised high value jobs. With an expected 3 million people living in Western Sydney by 2031, the precinct will become the one of the largest employers in the region. More information on the precinct's transformation can be found at Westmead Redevelopment.

 

Parramatta North comprises approximately 26 hectares of NSW Government land and is located along the eastern foreshore of Parramatta River opposite Westmead Hospital and Parramatta Park.  A rezoning of the precinct will allow for approximately 2,800 new apartment units, as well as commercial and retail space. Heritage buildings and approximately 7.1 hectares of new public open space, including a new river foreshore park, will be opened to the community. More information can be found at UrbanGrowth NSW.

Rydalmere, located three kilometres from the Parramatta CBD, fronts the Parramatta River extending to Rydalmere Ferry Wharf. Council’s vision for the 104 hectare industrial site is to transform into a high-tech knowledge precinct, leveraging the neighbouring University. Planning studies continue to inform a masterplan for the precinct.
