Private Sector Commitments

Of the $20 billion investment pipeline, over 30 percent has been committed to by the private sector. Private investment in commercial and residential buildings amounts to $3.4 billion including the $2.7 billion Parramatta Square which will become a business hub, cultural icon and gathering place. By 2022 Parramatta Square will be home to an additional 24,000 employees with the Public Domain seamlessly connecting residents and workers to the Parramatta Transport Interchange. 

Various images and architectural renderings set to music illustrating what the new Museum of Arts and Applied Sciences will look like after its move to Parramatta. 

The New Museum Of Arts & Applied Sciences & Powerhouse Precinct

The Powerhouse relocation to Parramatta Riverbank will open in 2023. The new building will be the centre of the new arts and cultural Powerhouse Precinct in Parramatta, which includes the newly relocated Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, a revamped Riverside Theatres and a new pedestrian bridge across the river. With 18,000 square metres of exhibition and public spaces, it will have a science and technology focus and include the largest planetarium in Australia. The museum will feature a dedicated play and learning space dedicated to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). It will also feature event and function spaces. The Powerhouse Precinct will be a 24-hour tourist attraction seven days a week.  The Powerhouse Precinct will drive visitation to the area, stimulating the Precinct’s economy and presenting opportunities for cafes, bars and retail stores.

NSW Government and City of Parramatta Council Investment 

The City of Parramatta Council and NSW Government signed a contract in 2017 for Council’s Riverbank site and to create a new cultural precinct on the Parramatta River. The NSW Government will take ownership of the Riverbank, known to locals as the ‘old David Jones carpark’. In exchange, City of Parramatta Council will invest proceeds into the delivery of its cultural plan and a major redevelopment of Riverside Theatres, enabling it to attract world-class dance, performance, theatrical and cultural events. 

Economic and employment forecasts for the cultural precinct
The cultural precinct could bring up to 1 million visitors a year. The precinct will be a big stimulus for Parramatta’s local economy and jobs. Economic modelling shows that by 2028 the new cultural precinct will grow the local economy between $106 million and $422 million. Employment is also expected to increase strongly not just during the construction phase, but during the operational phase of the new precinct, too. Once the museum is open, local jobs are expected to increase by between 150 and 600 new full-time equivalent jobs.

Civic Link

Image of Civic Link that connects the CBD to its surroundings

The City of Parramatta Council has a long-term aspiration to create the Civic Link, a bold, city-shaping project which will deliver a new pedestrian connection across four blocks in the CBD between Parramatta Square and the River. It will play an important role in realising the Central City vision by providing a network of public spaces for city life that will accommodate the scale and pace of change in the city, respond to the environmental challenges of an urban river city, and reflect Parramatta’s rich and vibrant history.

A Premier City Address
The Civic Link will be a major pedestrian boulevard, framed by buildings with high quality architecture and vibrant street edges. Its lively network of public places will connect transport modes and key destinations, including the New Powerhouse Museum, Parramatta Light Rail, River Square, Parramatta Square, and the Roxy Theatre. 
Space for People
Parramatta is transforming at a pace and scale which is unprecedented in its history. By 2036, there will be four times the amount of pedestrian foot traffic in the CBD. Civic Link will respond to this challenge by providing wide footpaths that allow people to move effortlessly through the city.

A Place to Celebrate Culture
Punctuated by cultural destinations and located in the CBD commercial core, the Civic Link will be a place for performance and artistic expression, day and night; providing a canvas for visual arts, lights, music, and festivals; welcoming people of all ages and abilities to celebrate city life.  

A Cool Green Spine through the Heart of the City
Parramatta experiences more than 15 very hot days over 35C a year. The Civic Link’s continuous 20m width will allow space for large shady trees, providing cool, green connections through the city. 

The City is moving forward with plans for the Civic Link through the preparation of the Civic Link Development Control Plan (DCP), which is an important first step in securing the space for the Civic Link. The DCP describes how future buildings will define the shape of the Civic Link and how surrounding movement will work. It identifies new public open spaces, streets, and laneways; guides property access and servicing; describes how future buildings will interact with public spaces; and outlines the shape of future building form. The DCP will play an important role in ensuring the new Civic Link is active and vibrant, with opportunities for people to walk, sit, meet, and importantly enjoy the beautiful heart of our city.

The DCP will be followed by further design of the public domain in the four distinct Civic Link Blocks. Council looks forward to engaging with the community as it realises these projects.
 

City River Strategy

From the Darug people to early European settlers, Parramatta River has always played an important role in history. Like many other cities around the world, Parramatta has gradually turned its back on the river foreshore. The City of Parramatta is leading an initiative to reclaim the waterway of the Parramatta River for the community; to create a place for walking, swimming, picnics, and events; a cool respite from the bustling city. Having a strategic plan is essential to realising this vision.

The Parramatta City River Strategy positions the river at the heart of the City’s redevelopment. It proposes a vibrant public domain which seamlessly knits together a collection of world class buildings, including the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and a revitalised Riverside Theatres. Along the foreshore, a series of major public places including River Square and a renewed Parramatta Quay will provide space for events, connect to key destinations such as Parramatta Square, and welcome people who live, work and visit Parramatta.

Precinct Development

Although the Parramatta CBD is experiencing significant urban renewal and record investment, a number of precincts in the city surrounds are considered strategically important.

Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Olympic Park is a 640-hectare residential, commercial, education and entertainment precinct, 14 kilometres west of Sydney’s CBD and 9km east of Parramatta. It boasts 430 hectares of green space and parklands and seven sporting venues. The NSW Government has committed to a Master Plan to further revitalise the precinct that will bring the jobs total to 34,000 and increase new homes to 10,700 for its 23,500 residents by 2030. More than 13 million people visit Sydney Olympic Park each year to enjoy everything it offers, from the parklands to sports stadiums and major event venues.

Investment in the Sydney Olympic Park precinct
The NSW Government approved the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan in 2018.  The Plan outlines how the area will be revitalised and bring more jobs to the precinct. Development projects totalling $1.4 billion are in the works for Sydney Olympic Park. 

There are plans for:

  • A new town centre and community facilities
  • An extra 100,000 square-metres of retail space
  • A new high school 
  • New buildings around major venues
  • Increased open space
  • Road infrastructure projects are also planned. New streets will improve access to the area. Roads will be widened for the future light rail corridor.

New buildings to create a lively entertainment hub to support Sydney Olympic Park’s current major venues will complement its existing sports capacity. There will be opportunities in education, hospitality, health and wellbeing as the business community rapidly expands.

NSW Government agency Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA) manages Sydney Olympic Park. Also refer to the Department of Planning & Environment website.
 

Camellia

Camellia is currently an industrial precinct and home to businesses that employ people across a range of industries. The 321-hectare area is just 1.5km east of the Parramatta CBD and one of metropolitan Sydney’s most important employment land precincts. With the Camellia Town Centre set to be rezoned as proposed in the draft Camellia Town Centre Master Plan, it would be transformed into an attractive place to live, work and play and bring many opportunities for businesses and investors. 

Camellia Town Centre Master Plan
Over the next 20-30 years the draft Plan would see a traffic and transport solution for the Camellia precinct, which will help progress planning for extra jobs in the area and unlock affordable housing.  Up to 10,000 new homes would be provided in the Town Centre, including affordable housing, and all within walking distance of a light rail station, retail, office and commercial spaces, cafes and restaurants. There’s also the potential for a new primary school, library, and community hub, creating 5000 new jobs.

The draft Plan allows for 13 hectares of new public open spaces throughout Camellia. This includes plazas, parks, playing fields and eight hectares along the riverfront, unlocking the Parramatta River foreshore to the public with pedestrian and bike access. The City of Parramatta Council intends to establish the town centre’s character as a new riverside community and ensure the renewal occurs with access and transport improvements including a footbridge across the Parramatta river and new walkng an cycling paths. These projects are intended to support a thriving, connected community on the doorstep of Sydney’s second CBD. For more information on the Camellia Town Centre Master Plan visit the DP&E website.

Parramatta North

The rezoning of land in Parramatta North in 2015 saw changes to land use, building height, and the floor space ratio (FSR), paving the way for redevelopment. The rezoning allows for the following development in Parramatta North:

  • 2800 new apartment units
  • 20,000 square metres of new commercial floor space
  • Around 4000 square metres of retail floor space

Heritage buildings will be preserved and adapted as part of the redevelopment. About 7.1 hectares of new public open space will be developed, including a new river foreshore park.

Parramatta North heritage
Much of the precinct is included on the State Heritage Register. 
Parramatta North Historic Sites (PNHS) are places of exceptional heritage significance to Parramatta, the people of New South Wales and Australia. 

The PHNS consists of three separate sites that are next to each other. The sites include:

  • Cumberland Hospital (East Campus) site
  • Parramatta Gaol site
  • Norma Parker Centre and Kamballa site

The Heritage Council of NSW endorsed the Parramatta North Historic Sites Consolidated Conservation Management Plan (the PNHS CMP) in 2017.  The PNHS CMP will help current and future owners, managers and other site users with the ongoing management of the heritage values of the precinct.  All future development in Parramatta North will must comply with the principles, policies and guidelines contained in the PNHS CMP. Download the PNHS CMP from the Resources Section of the Invest Parramatta website. 

Even though the City of Parramatta Council is the planning authority for the precinct, UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation is the NSW Government agency responsible for coordinating the redevelopment and transformation of the precinct.  Direct enquiries about the future ownership and management of the site to UrbanGrowth NSW. Visit the UrbanGrowth NSW website for more information.

Rydalmere

Part of the Parramatta Growth Area, the 104-hectare Rydalmere industrial precinct is 3km from the Parramatta CBD. The precinct fronts the Parramatta River and Victoria Road, and extends to Rydalmere Ferry Wharf in the east. The  Employment Lands Strategy (ELS) identifies Rydalmere as a Key Employment Precinct that is undergoing change and restructuring key industries. The ELS recommends a Structure Plan for Rydalmere and given the progress of the Parramatta Light Rail project, there are many implications for this precinct, including alignment options. 

Rydalmere park is 6.4 hectares of open space with sports facilities. Following extensive consultation with the community and stakeholders, a new Master Plan has been developed for Rydalmere Park. Plans for the Park are part of our vision for urban renewal of the precinct bringing greater amenity to Rydalmere.  Learn more about the Rydalmere Park Master Plan. The Subiaco Creek link in Rydalmere along the Parramatta River foreshore allows pedestrians and cyclists to avoid road traffic, including the busy, steep and industrial South and Pike Streets.  The link makes it possible to walk or cycle away from traffic for almost 20km on a high-quality path network from the WSU campus in Rydalmere and between Parramatta Park and Sydney Olympic Park. Quality off-road paths increase the amenity of an area and give businesses, residents and employees a more flexible choice for how they access the precinct. Parramatta Artists’ Studios (PAS) renowned program has expanded to include two warehouse-style artists’ studios in Rydalmere. The studios give established artists 24-hour access, seven days a week to this purpose-built space where they can work on major pieces to be exhibited throughout Australia and internationally.  PAS is helping build a flourishing artists community within the City of Parramatta and this network now extends to Rydalmere. 
 

Westmead

Health care is one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing industries.  Westmead is Australia’s largest health and biomedical research precinct. It has four hospitals, two universities, two large research institutes, NSW’s largest pathology service, and many allied health centres.  The Westmead health precinct services Western Sydney. It also provides specialised services for the rest of New South Wales. The health sector is expected to grow from 18,000 jobs in 2016 to 50,000 full-time jobs by 2036.  To carefully manage Westmead’s forecasted growth, the City of Parramatta Council is working with the NSW Government, including NSW Health, and other alliances to realise our vision for Westmead to become a world-class innovation precinct in health and education. 

Planning for growth in Westmead 
In November 2017, the NSW Government’s Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) announced Westmead as a ‘Planned Precinct’ with two distinct areas 1) The health and education area — north of the rail line and within the City of Parramatta Council area and 2) The residential area — south of the rail line and within the Cumberland Council area.

Westmead Innovation District Master Plan
With NSW Health, the City jointly commissioned the Westmead Innovation District Master Plan project. The project includes aspirational targets for jobs and tertiary students, driven by the significant government investment planned for the area.
The Westmead Innovation District Master Plan project will will feed into the DP&E’s Planned Precinct process.

Westmead Light Rail and Metro West
Well-connected to existing public transport, it takes less than three minutes to reach Westmead by train from Parramatta. The NSW Government has committed to building a new underground metro station at Westmead as part of the Sydney Metro West project. The new station will support the health, research and education precinct. It will connect Sydney to Westmead in as little as 20 minutes. 

The Parramatta Light Rail project is underway. The first stage will run 12km from Westmead, via Parramatta North and the Parramatta CBD, through to Carlingford. The light rail project will improve access around the Westmead precinct. It is scheduled to start operating in 2023.
