5 Parramatta Square

construction to start 

CITY of Parramatta Council will start construction of 5 Parramatta Square after its Development Application was approved by the Sydney Central City Planning Panel. 

The City’s new $130M civic, cultural and community building is the final addition to the new Parramatta Square precinct. The six-storey space will be dedicated to the community, offering a public library, café, publicly available meeting rooms, and access to nearby transport.  

“I’m thrilled to see Council’s long-term vision for one of Australia’s largest urban regeneration projects get the green light,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Bob Dwyer said. 

“With its striking design and incredible versatility, this new civic building will be the beating heart of the Parramatta CBD, where our community can meet, work, study, and relax. I can’t wait to see 5 Parramatta Square go from blueprint to reality.”  

Following a rigorous selective tender process, Council will appoint a builder in February 2020. Construction is expected to start soon after. 

The innovative and sustainable building was designed by a consortium of Australian firms DesignInc and Lacoste + Stevenson, and French firm Manuelle Gautrand Architecture. It will feature an open layout, tessellated facade and LED lighting, with light projections and digital artworks set to animate the building’s exterior.

This integration has been carefully considered by the architects to ensure it celebrates and maintains Parramatta’s rich culture and unique heritage

Parramatta Square is a three-hectare mixed-use precinct in the centre of Parramatta CBD. Located next to Parramatta train station and a future light rail stop on Macquarie Street, the precinct includes 6,000sqm of public domain that will serve as an important place to meet, trade, shop, dine, learn and connect. 

Council anticipates that 5 Parramatta Square will open in April 2022, to coincide with the completion of the remaining Parramatta Square precinct.

WEXPO connects the West

In terms of GDP, Western Sydney is half the size of Western Australia and bigger than Tasmania, Northern Territory and ACT combined. With 2.5 million people the region is the fastest growing population in Australia and the most diverse in terms of culture and age. It is home to 150,000 businesses and an unprecedented boom in development driven by the construction of Australia’s newest 24-hour airport.
