About 1 Parramatta Square

Beginning as an architectural design competition, 1 Parramatta Square was the first phase of a new master plan for a pedestrianized center of Parramatta. The building is marriage of a six story office tower and an eight level campus building serving as the new flagship location for the University of Western Sydney. A large centralized atrium offers the students an opportunity to move between the floors, creating a vertical campus, while ground floor retail activates the base of the building and ties it into an entirely new promenade running through the block and visually aligned to nearby St. John’s Cathedral. The building is well suited to take advantage of Parramatta’s intermodal transportation network and received a 5 Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
