The Green Square Library and Plaza will be the centrepiece of the Green Square Town Centre in Sydney. The design by Stewart and Hollenstein Architects features an underground living room and a seven storey glass tower which will be home to community rooms, reading rooms as well as a technology suite.

The development application for this project was first approved on February 2015. Early works started in July which will prepare the site for the construction phase in the coming months. The project is expected to be completed early 2018.
