The location is spectacular for the kind of development being close to Parramatta station, the future Parramatta Light Rail, & being located on the future Civic Link development.

The Architects for the concept development & renders are RAA Architects. At this stage there has been no developer selected to build the tower.

There is no expected timeframe for this development however it has been submitted for a DA so this development is moving along on paper.

This development will be another leap forward for the dramatic transformation of Parramatta.
