Let's face it - even if Parramatta's CBD gets a boost from all of these new developments, it is hardly the most attractive location, both in terms of appearance and in terms of connections with the rest of Sydney.
In terms of appearance it will never compare with the natural wonders that the Sydney CBD has, but in terms of connections they will improve and there is nothing stopping Parramatta becoming a real business power house.

Yes the DA has been lodged and though we are waiting for confirmation it appears the tower will be 300m+ (Sydney's first super tall!) and 88 storeys in height

Waiting for confirmation in the DA before editing the title

Height is now 306 metres to roof. There may be provision for a telecommunications structure to push the building to 336 metres tall.

Should the thread title be changed to "Parramatta | Parramatta Square" seeing it is not the city of Sydney, but the city of Parramatta.

Also should the thread be for the Aspire building only seeing that it is likely that the other commercial towers are several years away.

I think they do!

I mean by the time Aspire goes through the development application process, the site is purchased and construction commences/is completed I'd expect the commercial towers to at least have been lodged at Stage 2.

Parramatta City Council has packaged the entire site as 'Parramatta Square.' I say for the time being keep the whole project together, at least until Aspire commences construction. Then maybe separate them out (as we have done with International Towers from the Barangaroo residential and hotel).

And considering the thread has been titled with Parramatta Square does that not at least give enough indication of where it is?

Thanks Erik!

The DA says that the spires are actually antennae which do not count towards the official height. You are in the know - is this correct or are the architects leaving this open for a future developer to change?

seeing that it has twin spires and imo really suit its summit, 336m it is!!
i think its a great way of displaying the top section. really gives it landmark status and iconic look about it.
much like John hancock tower or sears tower, citic plaza (Guangzhou) Shunhing square (shenzhen, bank of china HK,!!
i know see this tower as 336m not 306m, much like Q1 ect.

Sydney like London is a city of multiple local governments, but generally locals think of Parramatta as a borough of Sydney.

Parramatta city council is doing project to put their city on the global stage.

I think it's wrong that the thread title states it's in Sydney, people just assume that this block of buildings is in the Sydney CBD like e.g. World Square or Grosvenor Place.

The title doesn't provide enough info or the right info for people to know it's in another location or city as small as that city maybe.

Especially when Sydney city council couldn't give 2 [email protected]$ks they shouldn't reap no recognition or reward.

Nice, went to Parramatta once while visiting Sydney and had lunch beside the river.
Regarding the Sydney in the title, if Binhai counts as part of Tianjin, then this is definitely part of Sydney.
Definitely a nice tower, I hope it gets built, so I can go see it.
