Sydney Olympic Park Development Projects

Sydney Olympic Park is a 640-hectare residential, commercial, education and entertainment precinct, 14 kilometres west of Sydney’s CBD and 9km east of Parramatta. It boasts 430 hectares of green space and parklands and seven sporting venues.

After the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Sydney Olympic Park was transformed into a dynamic place to live, work, study and visit. The NSW Government has committed to a Master Plan to further revitalise the precinct that will bring the jobs total to 34,000 and increase new homes to 10,700 for its 23,500 residents by 2030.

Around 12,000 people currently work in the area in more than 200 businesses. This figure is set to increase to more than 20,000 jobs by 2036.

More than 13 million people visit Sydney Olympic Park each year to enjoy everything it offers, from the parklands to sports stadiums and major event venues.
 

Master Plan Approved

The NSW Government approved Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan in 2018. The Plan outlines how the area will be revitalised and bring more jobs to the precinct.

Four residential towers loom over existing green park space in Bicentennial Parklands. The illustration is meant to show the balance that can be attained in development and leisure.

There Are Plans For:

  • A new town centre and community facilities
  • An extra 100,000 square-metres of retail space
  • A new high school 
  • New buildings around major venues
  • Increased open space
Cars flow more freely through Sydney Olympic Park in the future where currently there is heavy demand on infrastructure during major events.

New Streets Will Improve Access To The Area

Road infrastructure projects are also planned. Roads will be widened for the future light rail corridor. New buildings to create a lively entertainment hub to support Sydney Olympic Park’s current major venues will complement its existing sports capacity. There will be opportunities in education, hospitality, health and wellbeing as the business community rapidly expands.
