Precinct Development

Parramatta North


Parramatta North is a place of compelling stories that honour its history from the times of the First Peoples to the present. It is a site of living history and memory for many people, particularly those with connections to the numerous institutions that operated on the site.

Covering 42 hectares of government-owned land, the Parramatta North precinct is a whole-of-government, major urban renewal initiative that is essential to enable the vision for the Westmead Health and Innovation District.

Parramatta North will deliver a diversity of education, research, commercial, cultural and residential outcomes and provide key social and community infrastructure. It is set to become a thriving innovation, arts and cultural precinct with collaborative spaces for artists and innovators alike.

The precinct will celebrate and enhance the significant collection of heritage, cultural and environmental assets on site and provide improved connectivity to surrounding parklands, the stadium and cultural precincts to deliver exceptional place outcomes for the Central River City.

The Green at Parramatta North

The Green at Parramatta North is a revitalised 8,000 square metre sportsground, featuring new amenities including 6 cricket pitches, a rejuvenated turf playing surface, temporary changeroom facilities and sustainable LED lighting.

First established in 1879, The Green is a space that responds to Parramatta North’s history, including the stories from the Burramattagal people of the Dharug Nation and other Aboriginal people who have new and enduring connections to this place.

The Green at Parramatta North will boost participation in grassroots sport and is open to the general public and local sporting groups to enjoy.

We are inviting expressions of interest from sporting clubs interested in using The Green for the 2024 winter season.

Heritage restoration works

With a strong reputation for empowering positive change in the community, Spacecubed was appointed as the operator of the Western Sydney Start-Up Hub, which opened in late 2022. A new café, Havenstone, opened alongside the hub in early 2023.

Heritage restoration work continues on the stunning and significant colonial heritage buildings, some dating back to the 1820s and listed on the National Heritage Register includes the Parramatta Female Factory.

Additional funding announced in late 2021 will enable the:

  • conservation and upgrade of additional heritage buildings and other structures as the next part of a 10-year works program
  • preparation of business cases to establish cultural facilities and an immersive museum experience centred around the Parramatta Female Factory
  • repair and maintenance of Keller House to facilitate the delivery of a Stolen Generations Keeping Place, as supported by Aboriginal Affairs NSW and led by survivors and the Stolen Generations Council
  • upgrade of open space for public use
  • progression of the registration of interest process for the temporary activation and long-term tenancy of buildings and open spaces.
