Penrith is on the cusp of a significant transformation to strengthen our position as a key centre in the Western Parkland City.
The redevelopment of the former Council Chambers at 129-133 Henry Street into a new commercial building and community precinct will be the catalyst for the revitalisation of the Penrith CBD.
Global architecture firm, Woods Bagot, was chosen as the winner of a Design Excellence Competition for the building, now known as 131 Henry Street, following a rigorous competition and assessment from a panel of independent industry experts.
The proposed design will deliver a workplace of the future with 8,000 sqm of flexible commercial space, ground floor retail, on-site parking, green space and a building façade that activates both street frontages and incorporates best practice sustainability principles into the design.
Well-positioned in the heart of Penrith’s CBD, this commercial building will offer future occupants the ease and convenience of retail, restaurants, and major public transport links on their doorstep whilst also being adjacent to the future City Park.
By addressing the limited supply of A-grade commercial space in Penrith, this project will reinforce our role as a new commercial centre for growth, with improved investment and employment opportunities.
