Sydney’s Smart City in progress
By Tom O'Sullivan on 08 August 2018
With the turning of the first sod at Sydney’s new Science park, construction of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis has officially commenced.
Expected to deliver more than 12,000 smart jobs, educate 10,000 students and provide over 3,000 homes upon completion, the turning of the sod sets the start of the development at the 208-hectare Luddenham site.
Western Sydney, driven by Aerotropolis, will become the nation’s economic powerhouse creating 200,000 knowledge jobs at Badgerys Creek.
The first stage of development at Sydney Science Park includes a mix of commercial, residential, education and open space and the remainder of the first stage includes over 170 homes, a one-acre central park and NSW’s first “pre-post” STEM school.
Along with the STEM school, the first commercial buildings will be set to operate by 2021.
