The new Parramatta office complex that will house the New South Wales Department of Education offices has 'topped out' and is expected to be complete by March 2018.

The department will have 1,800 employees working there.

The topping out ceremony on Monday of 105 Phillip Street was attended by Dr Geoff Lee, State Member for Parramatta along with senior executives of Dexus and Charter Hall.

The building has a fit-for-purpose design that focuses on its occupants, according to a media release. 

It is being developed by Dexus with Built as the builder. The property is owned by Charter Hall. Dexus will manage the property after its completion.

Dexus recently announced three new tenancy commitments at The Axxess Corporate Park in Mount Waverley, following upgrades to the properties by the property group.

It will “essentially become a vertical community”, comprising 25,000 sqm of A-Grade office space and amenities that include a rooftop terrace with a communal outdoor dining area and sports court.

“The topping out is a significant milestone in the development of 105 Phillip Street. This development strongly supports Parramatta’s growth as a place to invest and to do business, while delivering a world-class, fit-for-purpose office space for our customer, the New South Wales Department of Education,” said Ross Du Vernet, chief investment officer at Dexus.

Dr Geoff Lee, State Member for Parramatta said it was the start for thousands of jobs coming to Parramatta. 

“Not only is Parramatta the capital of Western Sydney, it is the capital of education,” he added.

The building is close to transport links and incorporates end of trip facilities to complement the workspace. 

It has also achieved a 6-star Green Star Design rating, the first of its kind for a building in Parramatta and is expected to receive a 6-star Green Star As Built rating post completion and 5 star NABERS Energy rating.

As part of the project, the urban landscape will also undergo a makeover, replacing the plaza with a landscaped through site link between Phillip and George Streets, creating a connection with the streetscape.
