About Green Square
Green Square is one of the most significant urban renewal projects under construction in Australia. At the heart of this area is the Green Square Town Centre, forming the residential, retail, commercial, and cultural hub of the community.
Landcom is a major landowner within the town centre and the lead agency collaborating with key stakeholders. We have enabled delivery of the town centre by resolving complex land ownership, planning and infrastructure constraints.
We have entered a project agreement with the private sector (Mirvac Green Square) to develop the site.
