Rouse Hill town centre, Australia

Being 35km away from Sydney’s central business district, The Hills needed an integrated solution that would reinvigorate its economic and social town centre, by creating retail, residential and educational opportunities for the community.

The GPT Group achieved a ranking in the top 1% of real estate companies surveyed globally on the 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability Index. Of the past five years, GPT has been rated global sustainability leader in this index three times and has been in the top two both other years.

Working with a sustainable framework alongside SCP Consulting we delivered the complete structural design of the centre, comprising 65,000m2 of retail space, 2,800m2 of office space, 200 apartments, a new school precinct, community library, restaurants and a multiplex cinema.


Maximising the financial potential of Australian property with solutions that fulfil the aspirations of investors, tenants and communities, the project won several international planning and design awards. Rouse Hill is different to a shopping centre, because it’s a Town Centre that combines the traditional values and streetscape of a contemporary market town with the latest fashion, homewares, dining, community services and lifestyle choices.

Most residents of Rouse Hill are reliant on private cars for transport, with a high number of households having two or more cars. With a state-of-the-art car park customers can find availability within 3000 spots with an innovative Car Park Assist System making it easier and faster to park and go.
