One Hurstville Plaza, the $60 million 14-storey office tower being built next to Hurstville's public square, is due to open soon with practical completion scheduled for mid-April.

Michael Coombes, Director of Coombes Property Group, said the mixed-use tower would be comparable to those of other major employment centres.

"We're confident that this building along with the work that Georges River Council are doing will change the landscape of Hurstville and create a location that people want to work, live and invest in," he told the Leader.

"One Hurstville Plaza will allow business to operate within the St George region without compromising on amenity, location and quality that business are able to offer not only to their employees but to their customers and the local community."

Karen Le Provost, Associate at architecture firm PTW, said One Hurstville Plaza was envisioned as "a refined statement building animated by light and reflectivity, acting as a catalyst in reinvigorating Hurstville as a business centre."

"The vision from the conception was to activate the plaza with life and bring a vibrant retail and dining experience to the public domain while the tower, with its sleek silhouette creates a reflective backdrop to the plaza below," she said.

She said the fully glazed facade opens up 360-degree views that take her by surprise every time she visits the building.

"The higher up the more breathtaking the views become. My favourite view is on level 13 looking out towards Botany Bay," Ms Provost said.

"The level 1 terrace will be an amazing place to hang out in the morning sun, sitting amongst the expansive green walls and overlooking the plaza."

Georges River Mayor Kevin Greene said One Hurstville Plaza would deliver more than 8,400 square metres of "A-grade commercial floor space" over 11 floors and 1,800 square metres over three floors of mixed retail space, with the potential to generate 1,900 jobs for the Georges River area.

"One Hurstville Plaza will set the agenda for a revitalised commercial hub in the heart of Hurstville, putting the centre on the map as a business location of choice," he said.

The Mayor said Hurstville's rail connections, proximity to the airport and Sydney CBD would make it key to delivering the Greater Sydney Commission's vision for Greater Sydney as a metropolis of three cities, where people have access to jobs and services within 30 minutes of their home.

"The strategic centre sees over 45,000 commuter movements a day, hosting a variety of retail, restaurants, service providers, banks and medical practices," Mayor Greene said .

"Council's Hurstville Place Strategy will result in a reimagining of public spaces and activated streets to further attract visitors and workers to the centre."
