The Green Square project is transforming a 278 hectare area south of the city centre into an attractive, vibrant and sustainable urban place, with a diverse mix of housing, open spaces, offices, shops and facilities.
The Green Square area includes Beaconsfield and Zetland and parts of Rosebery, Alexandria and Waterloo and is just 3.5km from the city centre and 4km to the airport.
About 5,700 new dwellings have been built since 2000 bringing in close to 11,000 new residents. By 2030, Green Square is projected to house about 40,000 residents and attract about 22,000 workers.
The City wants to ensure this growth is guided by careful planning and the protection of the unique heritage of the area. We are working on priority projects to deliver quality community facilities, good transport connections, parks and open spaces and infrastructure to current and future residents and workers.
At the heart of the project is the development of the Green Square Town Centre, a new retail, commercial and cultural hub for the area around the Green Square station. The Town Centre will be the home of about 6,800 residents and 8,600 workers.
