THE HEART OF HOBART
Uniting the city’s unique past with its celebrated contemporary culture, Parliament Square is set to become the heart of Hobart. Located directly behind the historic Parliament House and connecting both the city and the waterfront, Parliament Square will become a natural continuation of Sullivan’s Cove’s vibrant offering.
Designed by award-winning architects, the innovative urban design updates the traditional notion of ‘the town square’. Seamless integration of a generous outdoor space, distinct heritage buildings and carefully designed contemporary additions will provide the ideal setting for the mixed-use tenancies.
Creating a focal point for social activity, Parliament Square will become a dynamic community hub, a destination for locals and visitors alike to relax in and enjoy.
The precinct will be delivered in multiple stages, with the Salamanca Building due for completion in second quarter 2017 and the final stage in last quarter 2018.
The design vision for Parliament Square is to create a new urban form that carefully integrates its significant existing heritage fabric with the character of Hobart.
Designed by multi-award winning architectural practice FJMT Architects, in consultation with renowned heritage architects Design 5, the design seamlessly integrates usable public space with commercial functionality.
The well-considered merging of heritage and modern architecture reflects an image of Tasmania which is rich in history and at the cutting-edge of international contemporary culture.
A focal point for the city
A culture of artisans, makers and producers
Located immediately behind Parliament house and bounded by three key city streets – Salamanca Place, Davey Street and Murray Street – the square is surrounded on all sides by well-established retail and entertainment precincts that are already popular year round with locals and visitors.
Connected to both the city and the waterfront, Parliament Square is prominently placed, easily becoming both a gateway to Hobart’s celebrated areas as well as a notable cultural destination itself.
