Following planning approval in 2021, early works are well underway on the Powerhouse Parramatta site. The carpark structure has now been demolished and work is continuing to remove the concrete and metal from the site. The next stage of demolition will start on the buildings along Phillip Street, which includes the non-heritage section of St George’s Terrace.
Early works does not include any work to dismantle Willow Grove. Ahead of the demolition of the Phillip Street buildings, a scaffold is being installed near Willow Grove to provide a barrier between ongoing demolition activities and the building.
Following the demolition of the major structures and the removal of materials, remediation and archaeology work will start at identified locations across the site.
