Parramatta is the CBD that just keeps on giving. After an extensive look at the top 10 future Parramatta skyscrapers, the area is at it again with the South Quarter development being the gateway to Parramatta’s Auto Alley precinct.
The 3 highrise & 2 low rise towers will completely transform the southern section of the Parramatta CBD, expanding the CBD south towards Granville.
