UDIA JUDGES' COMMENTS
"Eclipse Tower has lifted the architectural bar in Parramatta.
From the lobby designed around destination lifts to the curved facade maximising views - this building exhibits the quality design required under new Parramatta Council codes.
It was positive to see key tenants had input into the building's final construction, proving this type of collaborative approach can lead to a highly desirable end product."
