The redevelopment of the site proposes a 25 storey mixed-use development with ground floor retail and 135 residential units above. The site is conveniently located within the Parramatta CBD, in close proximity to transport and employment land uses.

The development will activate an existing vacant block with a high-quality mixed-use development that is sensitively designed to enhance the surrounding infrastructure including a local storm water culvert.

The development will facilitate a higher density and redevelopment of the site in a prime location in close proximity to a range of current and future services and public transport options.

  • Preparing a planning proposal to allow for increased height and density on the site;
