Growth & Development
Sydney Olympic Park has witnessed significant development since the Games and continues to grow to offer the community more in living, commercial, retail, sports and dining options.
Over $2.7 billion dollars of development projects have been approved at Sydney Olympic Park since the Games. Development has, and continues to transform this unique suburb and its community.
Sydney Olympic Park is now an economic hub of Sydney offering a remarkable place to do business for 220 organisations. Commercial development since the Games has included new high grade office buildings adding 150,000 square metres of gross floor area. A range of businesses are now located in the Park including the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Thales, Samsung, Lion, Fujitsu and soon the National Roads & Motorists’ Association.
Sydney Olympic Park opened its doors to its first residents in January 2012, and is now home to over 2,000 residents. The number of residents at the Park is set to increase dramatically in the next few years as there are another five new residential developments on the horizon that will bring an additional 1,700 dwellings.
Sports and the Community
The sports offering of Sydney Olympic Park has grown to include two new sporting venues since the Games. Netball Central is Australia’s first purpose-designed netball facility that was used to host the 2015 Netball World Cup. The other venue is an Australian Football League Centre of Excellence for the Greater Western Sydney Giants. This facility is a state-of-the-art training and administration centre as well as a learning centre to support the community.
Education facilities with a focus on sport have been added to the Park including the New South Wales Institute of Sport and the Australian College of Physical Education. Enhancements and developments for the community include the upgrade of the Sydney Showground stadium, a new $7 million play space called Blaxland Riverside Park, as well as additional shared pathways for cycling, walking and running.
As the Park has grown with new development and increasing visitation, additional services and amenities have also increased. Five hotels, serviced apartments, a lodge, cafes, restaurants and bars, a hairdresser, florist, pharmacies, bakery, childcare centres, convenience stores and other facilities now service the daily community and visitors.
