Parramatta and Liverpool to be expanded
RETAIL landlord Scentre Group has extensive plans for its major shopping centres in Parramatta and Liverpool worth approximately $600M.

The group, which co-owns Westfield Parramatta with GIC and proposed a 25-storey office development above the shopping centre in 2014, has lodged revised plans for a 42-storey tower to be built on top of the centre creating a total of 112,000 square metres of office space.
The revised proposed Woods Bagot-designed skyscraper would be located on the corner of Argyle and Church streets in response concerns voiced by council, at a cost of some $500M.
To the south, Westfield Liverpool is set to receive a $93 million revamp after Scentre submitted plans that would include an 8-storey commercial tower and new entertainment precinct.
The 84,000-square-metre centre is poised to add 5500 square metres of additional retail space and 11,000 square metres of commercial space.
If approved the project would include ground-floor retail while the new entertainment precinct would feature new dining options as well as a reconfigured cinema.
The delivery of new commercial premises would also "provide space for the expanding Liverpool business community", Scentre said.
Also in Liverpool, council has short-listed nine companies, from a total of 23, to design a 20-30 year masterplan to transform a 28-hectare site known as Woodward Place in Liverpool’s CBD.
Aspect Studio, CHROFI, Cox Architecture, Ethos Urban, GHD, Group GSA, Hassell, RPS Australia, and SJB Architecture have been invited to submit ideas for the masterplan for the Woodland Place project.
A preliminary concept design for Woodward Place is expected by the end of the year.
