8 Phillip Street, Parramatta
PARRAMATTA CITY COUNCIL
Developing an Arts Plan
In 2017 we developed an arts plan for 8 Phillip Street in line with Parramatta’s interim Public Art Guidelines for Developers.
Parramatta is heading in a bold and transformative new direction. Its emergence as Sydney’s second CBD sees its services and infrastructure upgraded to what can only be described as ‘enviable’ by first world standards. The inclusion of a nearby future airport, the new Parramatta Stadium and a soon to be built light rail system creates a sense of progress and momentum that is mirrored by the development of 8 Phillip Street.
