Building Type: Commercial / retail
Location: Parramatta, NSW, Australia
Stage: Development application
Budget: $80 Million
Roles & Responsibilities:

Designed to achieve a 5 Star Green Star and 5 Star NABERS Energy Rating, this A-Grade 13 storey office building is located at the north eastern corner of the new Parramatta Civic Precinct at the corner of Macquarie and Smith Streets.

The design gives careful consideration to the treatment of the ground plane and the public spaces created around and under the building. Retail frontages, with a two storey colonnade space, activate Smith Street. While to the west, a new laneway is visually activated by passenger lifts servicing the building within a glass core. A small cafe tenancy provides retail presence on the north south pedestrian link.

This project is ongoing. More details regarding this project will be added when made available.
