Badgerys Creek Precinct, South-West Suburbs Sydney, NSW
Badgerys Creek, the site of the planned Western Sydney Airport, is destined to become an economic powerhouse.
The region surrounding the airport has been nicknamed “aerotropolis” because of the massive projects planned for this location.
At the centre of this development will be the $5 billion Northern Gateway, a planned city featuring an international university and education precinct; a wellness and healthcare centre; a Westfield retail entertainment precinct and a hi-tech logistics hub.
Billions are being spent on road and rail infrastructure to cater for a population that is anticipated to swell to around 300,000 by 2036. As these projects roll out, Liverpool City Council is becoming an independent satellite economy.
Suburbs that are strategically located near the airport development are likely to benefit from the evolution of this precinct through rising property prices. Relative affordability has made the region popular with first home buyers.
This report includes the suburbs in the Liverpool LGA of Busby, Cecil Hills, Chipping Norton, Edmondson Park, Green Valley, Hinchinbrook, Holsworthy, Hoxton Park, Leppington, Liverpool, Lurnea, Middleton Grange, Moorebank, Prestons, Wattle Grove and West Hoxton.
