Parramatta. Winning design for $111m project

Tony Caro Architecture has won the design competition for a proposed mixed-use residential development on the former David Jones site, at 330 Church Street, in the Parramatta CBD. The $111 million redevelopment of the site is being proposed by Meriton Apartments Pty Ltd., with the winning design including two separate residential towers of 34 and 22 storeys, a public square and stepped terraces down to the edge of the Parramatta River. “The revitalisation of areas along the Parramatta River is a strong focus for council, and it's important that any future foreshore development provide the right mix of commercial, retail, community and recreational Space,” said Lord Mayor, John Chedid. Meriton can now formally lodge an application with the Department of Planning, which will undertake a full merit based assessment of the scheme. This will include consultation with Parramatta City Council.
