The NSW government has committed to the largest ever government agency leasing deal in Western Sydney, with more than 62,000 square metres of A-Grade office accommodation to be built by Walker Corporation at 4 Parramatta Square.

The new building will accommodate at least 4,000 public service roles, including more than 1,600 planning and environment roles relocating directly from the Sydney CBD by 2019.

Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Dominic Perrottet, said the development would establish a major public service base in Parramatta, the heart of Sydney’s second CBD.

The development will bring together around 2,500 roles from the Department of Planning and Environment, the Office of Environment and Heritage and the Environment Protection Authority, creating a Western Sydney Planning and Environment “hub” and improving opportunities for these agencies to work together.

Around 1,600 Department of Finance, Services and Innovation roles already located in Western Sydney will also be co-located in the new building.

The selection of Walker Corporation as preferred proponent followed an expressions of interest process and subsequent detailed tender phase.

Development approval for the site has been obtained and construction work is expected to commence in March 2017.

Since 2014, the government has announced the relocation of more than 4,200 public service roles from the CBD to Western Sydney.

This includes more than 1,800 jobs from the Department of Education, which will be relocated to 105 Phillip Street, Parramatta in 2018.
