City of Parramatta Lord Mayor welcomes Powerhouse news

City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Andrew Wilson has welcomed the announcement from the State Government that six design teams have been shortlisted to create the new Powerhouse Precinct in Parramatta.

“Congratulations to all the teams who have been shortlisted to develop concept designs for the landmark Powerhouse Precinct in Parramatta,” Cr Wilson said.

“With such a high calibre of Australian and international architecture firms involved in this exciting competition, the Powerhouse Precinct will undoubtedly be a world-class destination that will attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to Sydney’s Central City.”

“I look forward to seeing the vision these teams have for the design of the new museum and precinct. It will be a transformational project for arts and culture in Western Sydney, and help to position Parramatta as a truly global city.”

The Powerhouse Precinct is one of a number of City-changing projects underway, including the Parramatta Light Rail, Parramatta Square, and Riverside Theatres redevelopment. These will join the recently opened Bankwest Stadium.
