New Airport Business Precinct plans for growing region

19 April 2023

A hotel, shops and conference centre to cater to the needs of a growing region are included in newly unveiled plans for a Business Precinct at the gateway to Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
Stage one of the development is expected to generate 400 jobs through construction with another 2000 permanent jobs once the business precinct is fully occupied and operational.

WSI CEO Simon Hickey said the precinct is designed to initially service the region’s steadily growing construction workforce and would evolve as the airport and its surroundings develop over time.

“While the airport and the connections to it are being built, there are thousands of workers across the runway, terminal, civil works, metro and M12 construction sites and they will be the first to use this precinct which will adapt to meet the needs of airport customers,” Mr Hickey said.

“Once the airport becomes operational in 2026, the precinct will welcome flight crews and international passengers, but we are leading the way by meeting the demand for shops, accommodation and offices, which is increasing as momentum builds.”

The 20-hectare site is designed to include a ten storey, 150 room hotel, gym, café and conference facility and around 25,000 square metres of warehouse and office space. The initial construction phase includes internal roads and connections to arterial roads.

“Western Sydney International Airport is shaping up as a destination in its own right and we are making sure that we cater to local demand during the construction phase and as we grow to ultimately become Sydney’s biggest airport, 

“The vision for Western Sydney International is to maximise the economic uplift of the new airport by bringing business and commercial development alongside international and domestic passenger flights and cargo services in a vibrant, diverse and growing region.”

The Western Sydney Airport Business Precinct Stage One Major Development Plan is on public display until 13 July, 2023 in the airport’s Experience Centre, Penrith City Council Library, Liverpool City Council Library and online.

Western Sydney International is on track to open to international, domestic and air cargo services in late 2026
