Emerald City Residential

Emerald City is a mixed-use project located at the heart of Green Square which incorporates a full-line supermarket with boutique specialty retail, a commercial building and two residential towers above. The winning entry in a competitive design process, SJB’s concept is derived from Sydney’s indigenous landscape and the importance of authenticity; a new precinct that responds to the local natural environment, seasons and culture.

This project will service the growing community of Green Square through its public retail podium, whilst also accommodating 300 new residential apartments and a 5,000sqm commercial building located over four levels. The design ensures a balanced mix of complementary uses through careful site planning and the detailed design of the individual buildings.

Recognising the opportunity to provide for a balanced, connected life within the city, the high amenity design features landscape and communal spaces that will foster a sense of community amongst residents, workers and visitors whilst celebrating the local climate conditions. Our goal is to facilitate connection – connection of functions, connection to nature and ultimately a connection between people to support a new desirable community within this key inner-city renewal precinct.
