The retail industry is set to benefit from renewed development at Sydney Olympic Park following government approval of the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030.
Greenlighted by NSW Planning Minister Anthony Roberts, the next stage of the plan proposes a bold new vision for Sydney Olympic Park underpinned by sustainable design. The precinct will feature a new residential community, enhanced transport infrastructure and increased retail opportunities.
According to the plan, the creation of a town centre lies at the heart of the vision and will solidify Sydney Olympic Park’s standing as a lifestyle destination. It will be the new home of 23,500 people in 10,700 houses, 34,000 workers, 5,000 students and 100,000sqm of retail space.
The area will also be supported by a number of public transport initiatives including a Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 connection and a new Sydney Metro West to improve connectivity between Sydney Olympic Park, Parramatta and the Sydney CBD.
In addition to the approval of the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030, the following amenities are also undergoing construction:
- A new 24 storey hotel built in the P6 car park
- A new hotel built between ANZ Stadium and Sydney Showground
- A new primary and high school for students
- Australia’s first “built-for-rent” apartments
- A $24m wave pool built in P5 car park
- Potential development of Sydney Showground
- Further provision for accessible parking
- Five new local parks providing green space
In light of these exciting changes, Sydney Olympic Park continues to be a prestigious location for trade exhibitions and Sydney Gift Fair remains an essential vehicle connecting both wholesalers and retailers in the gift and homewares industry.
