Australian company Built have been selected to construct the $130 million 5 Parramatta Square following a year-long process by council.

The six-storey building would be the final addition to the new Parramatta Square precinct, a three-hectare mixed-use area in the centre of Parramatta CBD.

Plans for the sharp-tapered building include council chambers, library, exhibition spaces, visitor services, meeting rooms and a cafe.

It was designed by French firm Manuelle Gautrand Architecture and Australian firms DesignInc and Lacoste + Stevenson following an international design competition.

City of Parramatta lord mayor Bob Dwyer said the building would be the “jewel in the crown” of the world-class Parramatta Square precinct.

“The site of 5 Parramatta Square is challenging and Built has come up with innovative ideas for constructing a multipurpose building with a unique facade.

“The company is already delivering 6 & 8 Parramatta Square, part of Australia’s largest urban regeneration project.”

Council anticipates that construction of 5 Parramatta Square will be completed in April 2022, to coincide with the completion of the remaining Parramatta Square precinct.
