I drove up the M4 this morning and was surprised to see how quickly this building has shot up.

I've said it before and will say it again, Parra will look amazing in a few years time.

A skyline will look amazing. However, the real improvement is at street level. You have to stop by and visit the area rather than just drive along the M4 to see anything tangible. For example, the Altitude buildings may look great from a distance but it's not until you visit and walk around them that you see about half a dozen significant sized restaurants opening up along with other retail.

At the moment it is very much a work in progress and large chunks of Parramatta are or will be construction sites but give it a bit of time and I think it will all come together quite nicely.

I lived in the heart of Parramatta for a few years up to 2015, (Campbell st, just behind Westfields), so I know Parra at street level quite well.
That said, I realise it's changing at a rate of knots, and look forward to going for a walk around there again soon.
