Parramatta's urban landscape is continuing to evolve as it reaffirms itself as Sydney's second CBD.

Privately-owned developer Coronation Property's mixed-use development 8 Phillip Street, is central to Parramatta's growing charm.

The 55-level tower is set to redefine luxury living, art, and hospitality, bringing together a unique fusion of design elements to create a landmark destination.

In collaboration with the renowned global architects Woods Bagot, the tower's unique reverse-step podium design not only extends the ground floor public domain but also pays homage to the existing heritage buildings, with a particular focus on preserving the St Andrew's Church Hall. 

Aras Labutis, Head of Urban Transformations at Coronation Property, confirmed that the development exemplifies the progressive future of Parramatta by establishing an attractive new precinct for both residents and visitor whilst respecting the historical significance of the area.

"8 Phillip Street pays tribute to the century-old St Andrew’s Church and Church Hall with an adaptive re-use approach at the urban level, while the sculptural tower sits above an activated ground plane," Labutis said. 

“With the tower responding to its surrounds, coupled with the layering of local heritage, amenity, hospitality and luxury residences, the project delivers an unrivalled vertical lifestyle destination to Western Sydney."

Crowning the building is an iridescent silhouette that will serve to illuminate the building and define 8 Phillip as a landmark destination on Parramatta’s night skyline.

The towering silhouette of 8 Phillip Street will be graced with an iridescent crown, transforming the building into a luminous beacon that will define Parramatta's nighttime skyline, with the illuminated crown not only adding a striking visual element but also underscores the tower's status as a landmark destination within the city.

The tower comprises 314 residences that seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor spaces, with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses. The apartments will sit alongside Parramatta's first luxury QT Hotel, spanning from the ground floor to level 17 of the tower. QT Hotels are known for their distinct style, rooted in creative collaborations with local communities across various artistic mediums. 

Residents benefit from a host of resort-inspired amenity, including a pool, outdoor terrace with landscaped relaxing areas, wellness facilities and two fine-dining restaurants on the ground floor.
