‘Parramatta Square is one of the largest and most exciting urban transformation projects in the country and is central to Parramatta’s City Council vision to build Australia’s next great city.’
Parramatta Square is a $2billion mixed-use redevelopment precinct located in the centre of the Parramatta CBD. The Parramatta Square development is one of the country’s largest urban renewal projects.
The 5 PS project is a dynamic, multiuse Council Facility providing Library, Community Spaces, Exhibition Areas, Council Chambers, and Café.
The building will be integrated into the existing Town Hall Building which will have adaptive reuse whilst preserving its heritage significance.
The iconic transparent façade design extends above the historic Town Hall with a cantilevered structure providing a platform for the Council Chambers with a large LED screen for public art projections to the northeast.
The $50 million project will cover six-storeys with a Gross Floor Area (GFA) of approximately 8000sqm.
