295 Church Street, Parramatta


The site is located within the entertainment district in Parramatta, also referred to as ‘eat street’ section of Church Street, Parramatta. The proposal involves a high-quality mixed-use building, adding to the vitality of Church Street and its built form.

The project involved the amendment to the height and floor space ratio controls for the site, to enable a significantly greater density of residential and commercial development. The site involved a number of challenges including, heritage (being part of the Church Street conservation area)and through site connections.
