Our developments

For the first time in over 100 years, the City of Sydney is building a new town centre.

We’re designing a unique, resilient and welcoming centre to form the residential, commercial and cultural heart of the Green Square community.

This will be a place combining sustainable infrastructure with community spirit, lifestyle and character.

The City has committed $540 million over the next 10 years to create world-class community facilities including an innovative new library and plaza, an aquatic centre, many parks and playgrounds, a childcare centre and a creative hub.

We’re also ensuring important infrastructure like stormwater drains, roads, footpaths and a transport corridor for future light rail are in place.

The City is working closely with private developers to ensure growth and development is sustainable, innovative and respects the character of our existing neighbourhoods.

Green Square town centre:

  • 14 hectares
  • $8 billion combined investment
  • 6,800–8,600 projected working population
  • $540 million City of Sydney investment.
