The first building of Sydney’s newest business park in the heart of Western Sydney. Construction of the multi-million dollar Werrington Park Corporate Centre (WPCC) continues at speed and is on track to cater for western Sydney’s growing need for new high-tech industries and knowledge-economy jobs.
Leading builder ADCO Constructions reached a milestone recently with the structure completed and the building topping out.
WPCC will be the highest quality commercial office development west of Parramatta. The new three-storey office building is state-of-the-art in its design, and is rated 5 Green Stars and 4 Star NABERS for sustainability, minimising its energy and water use reducing operational costs.
It will provide A grade office accommodation comparable to that recently developed in Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, Norwest and Macquarie Park.
The $30 million project is a partnership between the University of Western Sydney, Penrith City Council and the Penrith Business Alliance, and also supported by the Australian Government. It is the first step to establishing a 58-hectare multi-million dollar Business Park Precinct for Greater Western Sydney – a region home to 2 million people, and predicted to grow by another one million people by 2036.
Located in one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing economic regions, WPCC is centred between the North West and South West growth corridors.
With excellent presence on the Great Western Highway, it is the ideal Western Sydney headquarters for a business who wishes to leverage the future growth associated with the development of Sydney's second airport at Badgery's Creek and the infrastructure being developed in the region.
The leasing campaign is underway, with agents CBRE and Colliers International sourcing tenants and reviewing the more than 30 enquiries received to date. The University is also leveraging its relationships and partnerships across the computing, engineering, IT, mathematics, humanities, communication arts, science and health fields.
Tenants at WPCC have the opportunity to collaborate with the University in areas such as employee professional development, research, graduate placements and have access to the proposed onsite Business Development Incubator that will promote entrepreneurship for start-up businesses.
Over the next 20 years, the Precinct will have the capacity to generate 6,000 ‘knowledge jobs of the future’ in areas such as health, engineering, digital communication and education, and importantly, give people the opportunity to work and learn where they live.
Many of Greater Western Sydney’s residents currently have to commute long distances to work. Within the Penrith Local Government Area (LGA) alone, more than 64 per cent of its 88,000-strong skilled workforce spends close to two hours each day commuting to and from a place of work that’s outside the LGA.
