Transformational project on a scale similar to some of the world’s most famous urban squares
Highly ambitious and exciting open-air plaza project never seen before in the City of Stonnington
Multifunctional urban park that delivers on Council’s Strategies for Creating Open Space
Cato Square is the $60+ million transformation of the old Cato Street car park in Prahran into almost 10,000m² of multifunctional urban parkland with over 500 spaces of underground car parking.
It is one of the largest, most ambitious and exciting construction projects ever delivered in the City of Stonnington.
When completed in 2019, Cato Square will provide urgently needed open space for recreation, events, festivals and markets and a 20 per cent increase in car parking spaces for shoppers and retailers in the surrounding Chapel Street and Greville Street precincts.
Cato Square will become an iconic cultural and recreational destination for residents, businesses, shoppers and visitors to Stonnington, with spaces for quiet contemplation and areas for vibrant community events.
Construction of Cato Square commenced in January 2018.
