A vibrant precinct designed around a generous new public park

Parramatta Metro Precinct

A new transit-oriented precinct

We’ve collaborated with Sydney Metro to design a vibrant new transit-oriented precinct in Parramatta, the plans for which have been unveiled by the State Government this week.

Over the past two years, Bates Smart has worked in the roles of architect and urban designer to develop an energetic and connected precinct, to support the Sydney Metro West line and the growth of the Parramatta CBD over the next 40 years.

Parramatta Metro Station is located at the centre of an accessible transport hub, linking the nearby bus interchange and light rail routes with two Metro station entries on Church Street and the future Civic Link. The precinct is designed around a generous new public park, and proposes a network of pedestrianised laneways connecting with the wider Parramatta CBD. The public realm is activated with food + beverage offerings, above which sits a vibrant mix of three commercial towers and one residential/build to rent tower.

Thank you to our design collaborators – Transport for NSW, Grimshaw (below-ground/station architects) and Arcadia Landscape Architecture.
