VISION FOR $8B WORLD TRADE CENTRE

Jobs explosion under radical plan
TERRY COLLINS
AN $8B World Trade Centre proposed for Bringelly could see an employment explosion in Western Sydney and billions of dollars pouring into the region over the next 20 years.

Submitted to the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet by the Aerotropolis Group and planned by Woods Bagot, the development would comprise four WTC towers, an international convention and exhibition centre, commercial areas for large multinational companies, an innovation and incubation centre for start-up companies, retail spaces and residential areas.
 
The Aerotropolis Group, which has acquired a licence to establish a World Trade Centre in Sydney, has proposed the development for a 120-hecatre parcel of land just three kilometres from the proposed Western Sydney Airport.
 
The development aims to create an ecosystem to promote international trade, economic activity and employment by connecting Sydney with 322 other cities in 87 countries across the world with the WTC network.
 
It also aims to be a net zero carbon precinct, through energy production, storage and use on site.
 
Lead architect at Woods Bagot Neil Hill said the new Western Sydney Airport and the realization of the Greater Sydney Commission’s strategy for the Western Parklands City provided an “extraordinary opportunity to conceive urban development”.
 
The proposed site at 203 Greendale Road is located adjacent to the one of the properties in the University of Sydney’s Camden Farms in Bringelly.
 
The farms are currently used as teaching and research facilities for Veterinary Science and Agriculture and Environment but the university has already lodged a rezoning proposal for the creation of a mixed-use employment, retail, commercial and residential on the land, according to its submission to the Greater Sydney Commission’s Draft South West
District Plan in March 2017
 
The Aerotropolis Group says the synergy between the airport, the new World Trade Centre and the university would create huge economic and employment growth in Western Sydney.
 
The development is estimated to generate $13.7B of direct economic output over 21 years according to analysis by PwC would hopefully open by 2026 to coincide with opening of the Western Sydney Airport.
 
The federal, state and eight local governments signed a city deal for Western Sydney on March 8 this year, but an implementation plan has not yet been released.
 
Import and Export
 
The plan incorporates a range of commercial typologies from side core towers to lower rise aimed at creating sustainable workplace settings where business can engage with the external environment, connecting with 322 WTCs all over the world.
 
Education
 
The site is linked to the University of Sydney, providing the opportunity for educational shared hubs. The development could be a destination for an international education market featuring aerospace technologies. It could also facilitate collaboration between the university and industry.
 
Public space
 
A primary civic spine along the north would be connected to the university and the lake, with landscaping and water features providing amenity. This would serve as a central space for community life and connect key spaces and precincts.
 
Transport
 
A multi-nodal hub would connect all three cities of Sydney with an internal light rail network connecting with the university and future developments east of the site. The network would support alternative energy vehicles and there would be a metro rail network through the development and the airport.
 
Residential
 
There would be a mix of high and low density sustainable residential dwellings creating a village sense of community with price settings to include low cost housing and short-term stay accommodation. It is anticipated hotel accommodation would be developed.
