Green Square Town Centre

A vibrant place to live

Green Square is one of the most significant urban renewal projects under construction in Australia. Landcom is a major landowner within this town centre and we have a project agreement with the private sector (Mirvac Green Square) to develop our sites.

Our vision is to revitalise the industrial edge of Sydney’s inner south into a vibrant global village, forming a hub of residential, retail, commercial, and cultural amenities for the community.

About the project

Originally conceived in 1996, the NSW Government entrusted Landcom to work with landowners and the City of Sydney to rejuvenate the former industrial land into a future global village. 

Today we are the major landowner within the town centre, and the lead agency collaborating with key stakeholders. We have enabled delivery of the town centre by resolving complex land ownership, planning and infrastructure constraints. We’ve entered a project agreement with Mirvac Green Square to develop the site and transform it into an entertainment and cultural hotspot for those who want to live and work in Sydney.

The City of Sydney is responsible for the design and delivery of community facilities including the library, plaza, open spaces and aquatic centre.

Green Square Town Centre provides:

  • easy access to Green Square train station, buses and cycleways
  • proximity to employment areas
  • a mix of housing options, including Affordable Housing for very low, low and moderate income households
  • a future variety of shops and food options
  • sought after community infrastructure including public art a new plaza and library, creative centre, and new parks and an aquatic centre under construction
  • close proximity to domestic and international airports 
  • close and easy access to leading universities and educational facilities.

Current works

A development application for our next stage of Green Square Town Centre is currently under consideration by the City of Sydney. We expect to commence work on the next stage in 2019.

We've reached several construction milestones at the town centre including:

  • building the first high street in Sydney in 100 years, Ebsworth Street, which was delivered by Mirvac and Landcom and opened by the City of Sydney in June 2016
  • building ‘Ebsworth’, the first private residential building in the town centre and completed in March 2017
  • building ‘OVO’, the tallest residential building in the town centre and completed in May 2018
  • enabling the opening of Woolworths supermarket in May 2017 to service the first town centre residents.

Other initiatives

Community engagement

Between February 2016 and April 2018 Landcom led a unique joint community relations approach with City of Sydney, Mirvac and Crown Group producing regular construction newsletters, managing a community liaison group and assigning a dedicated Community Liaison Officer through the construction phase to minimise impacts on local residents.

As construction on new buildings gets underway we will continue to inform residents and manage works to minimise construction impacts.

We continue to work closely with the City of Sydney to coordinate communications, community building and placemaking activities.

Placemaking

We have employed a Place Manager and Green Travel Coordinator to support the community through creative placemaking and community building activities.

Our Place Manager also produces a Green Travel Guide that shows public transport, cycling and pedestrian options to the city and nearby universities, shops and recreational areas.

Sustainability

Landcom and Mirvac have a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Sydney to support the City in its aspirations for the Green Square Town Centre, as a pilot project, to achieve the highest rating using the Green Building Council of Australia's Green Star - Communities Rating tool.

We are committed to regular surveys of residents to understand their perceptions of health, wellbeing and community to inform our placemaking and project design.

Landcom and Mirvac are contributing $36.6m into the Affordable Housing Fund for the provision of Affordable Housing at Green Square Town Centre.
