The South West Sydney growth corridor is rapidly expanding and Campbelltown is leading the way.
Significant investment in infrastructure combined with massive population growth is creating a major metropolitan destination and the engine room for future prosperity in the region.
Close proximity to Western Sydney Airport will give the area a distinct economic advantage to leverage off local and international investment opportunities and will be a crucial part of global Sydney’s future economic productivity.
Campbelltown is one of Australia’s fastest growing cities and according to the latest figures from forecast.id its population will grow to 275,778 by 2036, which is up over 60 per cent on current numbers.
A major focus area for Campbelltown’s growth and development is its health and education precinct.
Admissions and emergency departments are projected to double in size by 2036, creating demand for jobs at Campbelltown Hospital and other allied services.
Planning and design works have already commenced on Campbelltown Hospital’s $632 million stage two redevelopment – an upgrade of the facility which will bring world-class healthcare to the community.
There are also more than 14,000 students already enrolled at both Western Sydney University and TAFE NSW, with this figure set to increase.
Kathleen Hadely, 28, is a speech pathologist working at Campbelltown Hospital who grew up in Ingleburn.
“I have lived and worked in the Campbelltown region all of my life and observed first-hand the exponential growth in the area,’’ says Ms Hadely, who is pictured below.
“My focus was to find an investment property in a location that had the potential to deliver long-term capital gains. New Breeze at Bardia proved to be that place.
“It is half way between Campbelltown and Liverpool, which is home to the two biggest hospitals in the area, Western Sydney Airport will be a short drive and there is major infrastructure already in place including Edmondson Park Train Station and Bardia Public School.
“I can also now see several cranes constructing Edmondson Park Town Centre which will be a great shopping and entertainment destination.”
One of the biggest land holders in the South West is Dahua Group, which is developing two master planned communities, New Breeze at Bardia and Menangle Park comprising more than 5,000 land lots.
“We are committed to building communities with an abundance of facilities for residents to enjoy,’’ says Eric Li, Dahua chief executive officer in NSW and Queensland.
“Our focus is to deliver sustainable urban developments that meld with the local environment and provide world-class amenities,’’ he said.
New Breeze at Bardia is quickly taking shape; there are currently around 350 residents and almost 1,000 land parcels have been sold.
