A Perfect Storm For Retail

Parramatta CBD has an estimated 200,000 m2 retail floorspace1, including Westfield Parramatta, which is the joint-largest shopping centre in New South Wales2. Recent entrants to the market are transforming the retail offer in Parramatta CBD and there are several major retailers looking for space. Parramatta's central location makes it accessible to the 1.6 million residents already living in Western Sydney.

Parramatta’s retail transformation has already started. The completion of Parramatta Square will be the next major milestone and should add a further 7,000 m2 floorspace by 2019.

Development of the Riverbank Precinct and Civic Link, together with the potential expansion of Westfield and mixed use developments including the Cumberland Media site will provide a pipeline of retail floorspace over the next decade in response to market demand.
