Sydney Science Park is a $5bn project that will create an internationally recognised epicentre for research and development in the heart of Western Sydney. Set over 280ha, Sydney Science Park will be a fully integrated community that will create more than 12,000 knowledge based jobs, cater to over 10,000 students and be home to over 10,000 residents. We have studied world’s best practice and added our own unique perspective to create an unparalleled vision for Sydney Science Park – a vision focused on liveability and lifestyle.
This is not a science park as much as it is a new science city.
Sydney Science Park is located in the strategic ‘Western Sydney Priority Growth Area’ at Luddenham. It has easy access to the M4 and M7 motorways, is 3km from the new airport at Badgerys Creek and close to major town centres; 9km to Penrith, 18km to Liverpool, 22km to Rouse Hill and 24kms to Parramatta.
The NSW Government is currently finalising the route selection for the rail connection to the airport as well as the new Outer Sydney Orbital (M9) and Airport Motorway (M12). Both these pieces of vital infrastructure will service the Sydney Science Park. Badgerys Creek Airport is expected to be opened by 2024. The NSW and Federal Governments are making a once in a generation investment in the region and Sydney Science Park is perfectly located among these crucial projects.
Sydney Science Park’s first precinct has been designed by Celestino in conjunction with Urbis and FJMT Architects. It delivers the key elements required to build an innovative ecosystem in a vibrant and activated community. The masterplan has been designed to facilitate collaboration and engagement between the Park’s users, especially its innovators and entrepreneurs.
By encouraging walking and connectivity, the Park will promote a healthy living and working environment. In addition, every aspect of the park is being designed to reflect the innovation ethos. We are building a truly smart city that will use world-leading sustainability practices and the latest international technologies. The first precinct will contain approximately 160,000sqm of commercial floor space, 661 homes, 8,000sqm of retail and 9ha of open space. Click here to view the proposed first precinct masterplan.
The first building to open will be one of the most sustainable and technologically advanced in Australia. The 30,000sqm building, to be delivered in three 10,000sqm stages, has been uniquely designed by FJMT Architects, credited with the Charles Perkins Building at Sydney University and the Tyree Building at NSW. The first two floors will be home to Baiada’s state-of-the-art laboratories.
The laboratories will be able to perform to PC3 investigations and the building will have uniquely interactive functions. It will be open to users on a fee for service basis. The first building will be operational by 2018.
We welcome a range of local and international users from across the innovation ecosystem. Packages being designed to accommodate start-ups, venture capital, educational and research institutions, and multinational companies, to name a few, will be made available in early 2017.
We already have partners from many of these sectors planning to move to the site and deliver the knowledge jobs of the future including;
