Penrith City Council is transforming Soper Place car park into a unique destination that blends work, leisure and play, while delivering extra parking for Penrith.

Soper Place Revitalisation is an exciting, city-shaping project that will help renew Penrith’s City Centre and have major benefits for residents, workers, visitors and local businesses.

The new development will revitalise part of the existing street level car park into a vibrant precinct with more car parking, commercial offices and green space including:

  • Multi-storey car parking with around 600 additional spaces
  • Four storey office building with approximately 6,200 sqm of A-grade commercial space
  • Multi-use community space, called the Public Room, with 931 sqm of floor space
  • Public rooftop garden and green building façade to help combat urban heat
  • Activation of the public domain

The design for Soper Place was decided through a NSW Government Design Excellence Competition and judged by a panel of independent industry professionals. The winning design was created by the team led by Durbach Block Jaggers architects, and seamlessly integrates commercial, community and nature to support Council’s Cooling the City initiatives.

This inspirational design has been lodged as part of Council's Development Application (DA) for the project. You can view the DA for Soper Place Revitalisation via Council’s online DA tracker by searching DA20/0858 here.


Alternative nearby parking (243 parking spaces) is available at North Street car park, located on the corner of Henry and Doonmore Street, approximately five minutes walk from Soper Place.
