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.

These towers are designed by Turner architects & this site will also feature a 2,000sqm public park which will be accessible to both residents & the general public, which is a great feature & selling point, particularly for families, in a development as dense as this.

The development includes a total of 777 apartments which site 1 includes 542 apartments & sites 2 & 3 include 235 apartments. The development also includes 275 hotel rooms. On site 1 there is a total of 874 car spaces meaning there will be ample car parking space for the 542 dwellings & 275 hotel rooms.

The Developer is Dyldam which is considered to be one of the biggest construction companies in Western Sydney.

It is expected that the development would be completed by 2020, roughly the same time as the completion of marquee development named Parramatta Square to the north of this development.
