With the WestConnex Revitalisation, the Parramatta Road Corridor seeks to integrate land use and transport as well as catalysing public domain improvements that support a higher density. The Parramatta Road Corridor consists of eight precincts – Granville, Auburn, Homebush, Burwood, Kings Bay, Taverners Hill, Leichhardt, and Camperdown.

Working closely with COX, CM+ provided urban design input into preparation of the Parramatta Road Urban Design Guidelines, which consisted of identifying development principles and requirements, establishing an urban design framework for each precinct for identity, future built form, public domain, and private amenity through research by design as well as stakeholder engagements with the various councils involved.
