Tomorrow’s Sydney: Why Green Square is Set to Transform the City

Tomorrow's Sydney Why Green Square is Set to Transform the City

What once was an industrial area will soon be a bustling cultural centre with a density higher than that of New York City’s Manhattan. The Green Square project is soon to be Sydney’s newest town centre in over 100 years, with $540 million being invested over the next 10 years by the city and a $13 billion urban renewal construction.

Situated just two train stops from the airport and 20 minutes from the city, Green Square has been thoughtfully designed to provide a beautiful quality of life for local residents and visitors. The community has a brand-new sports stadium, public swimming pool and shared green spaces to look forward to, as well as renewed pedestrian areas and a multi-level public play tower. You’ll be able to visit the state-of-the-art underground Green Square Library, or visit the Joynton Avenue Creative Centre to join a community workshop. The plans incorporate clever nods to the area’s heritage ensuring there are delightful surprises around every corner; fruit trees to honour the area’s market garden history, a Rope Walk Park to reflect an old rope and cordage manufacturing site, and a community park called The Drying Green where wool was once laid out to dry in the sun.

One of the most impressive aspects of Green Square is its sustainable credentials – its town centre has a 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, which is the highest possible rating. Environmentally conscious decisions have been made down to the smallest careful detail; from LED street lights, to urban water features that collect and reuse stormwater, to solar powered public artworks. It’s set to become a truly green city that shapes the way we approach urban design and community living.

From September, Veriu Green Square will offer modern accommodation at the heart of Green Square. Guests will be perfectly positioned to explore the new revitalised area from each of the brand new 144 hotel rooms and apartments, with access to a Veriu host who can give local advice and recommendations. In addition, guests will enjoy free fast WiFi, free Lekker bike hire and the choice of room service by hatted chef James Metcalfe’s new venture, Freddie Green’s.

Veriu Green Square adds to existing Veriu Hotels & Suites locations in Camperdown, Broadway, Randwick and central Sydney. These locations complement our 13 Punthill Apartment Hotels in Melbourne and Brisbane.
