Artist's impression of Parramatta Square
Parramatta Square is set to become a visionary, world-class landmark and destination in the heart of the Parramatta CBD. Located across a prime three-hectare city block, the $2.7 billion project will comprise six new buildings and a refurbished Town Hall. The precinct is linked by 6,000sqm of public domain that will serve as an important place to meet, trade, shop, dine, learn, celebrate and connect.
Parramatta Square Buildings
1 Parramatta Square
The stunning $220 million Parramatta city campus for Western Sydney University (WSU) is home to 10,000 students from the School of Business. It was 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.
3 Parramatta Square
The 17-level, 3 Parramatta Square building will set a new benchmark for commercial offices in Parramatta and deliver over 45,000sqm of commercial space. Featuring a glass facade and central atrium, the tower will be the Western Sydney address of National Australia Bank.
Expected completion: April 2020.
4 Parramatta Square
Not only offering A-Grade commercial space, 4 Parramatta Square will also include a Business and Events Centre and a range of dining options - from cafes to fine dining - that will flow out and activate the outdoor space. Accommodating multiple NSW Government tenants in the heart of Parramatta, the tower will offer a direct connection from Parramatta train station to the public domain via a seamless single level access to the rest of the CBD.

On 12 August 2019, City of Parramatta Council approved the lodgement of a Development Application (DA) for the City’s new civic, cultural and community building. 5 Parramatta Square will be a contemporary, sustainable multipurpose building where the community can meet, work, study and play. The building will include a new city library, publicly available meeting rooms and café integrated with the City’s historic Town Hall.
For more information on the project, to view DA documentation, and for information on how to make a submission in response to the DA, please see Council’s ePlanning website (reference number DA/476/2019).

The DA will be determined by the Sydney Central City Planning Panel.
Any submissions on 5 Parramatta Square should reference DA/476/2019 and be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

6 and 8 Parramatta Square
In January this year, the final two commercial towers in the Parramatta Square precinct were granted planning consent. 6 and 8 Parramatta Square will offer a combined 124,000sqm of commercial floor space over 50-storeys and is set to become Australia's biggest office tower. 6 Parramatta Square's lobby will offer panoramic views over the public domain. The building includes extensive floor plates from 2,800 to 3,100 sqm, allowing for a diverse and functional workplace.
Expected completion: August 2021 (6PS) and April 2022 (8PS).
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. The public domain is the centrepiece of Council's plan to transform its public spaces and will be completed in stages.
Archaelogical digs across the site have revealed important remnants of Parramatta's First Australians and European heritage. These will be captured through a range of interpretations and references throughout the precinct, acknowledging the role of the sire in Australia's earliest and ongoing history.
