The new Green Square community is closer to getting its planned new primary school and community facility.

The design has been unveiled by the NSW Government and the City of Sydney.

The new primary school will meet enrolment demands in one of Australia's fastest growing neighbourhoods. 

The project will include additional facilities designed for both school and community use.

Architect BVN’s competition-winning design integrates school and community spaces for both day and night use and will be built on the former South Sydney Hospital site on Joynton Avenue.
 

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the winning design from BVN would "create a fantastic place for children to learn.”
 
The NSW Government will fund and staff the project with a contribution from the City of Sydney.
 
The winning design was commended for its response to the surrounding local area, its clever multi-purpose sports court, smart educational approach and its consideration of the environment.

City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the City will contribute $25 million to the "revolutionary school to provide much-needed community facilities that will be activated day and night for the whole community to use."

“Close to the aquatic center and library, this school will be an important addition to the area’s educational, social and cultural life,” the Lord Mayor said.

“This new school will sit at the heart of the growing Green Square community and set a new benchmark for urban development," she added.

The latest apartment project being marketed is Green Square By Mirvac with Portman House at 77-93 Portman Street, Zetland.
