6 December 2012 — Housing lots in Edmondson Park, the first new transit oriented development in Sydney’s south west, are now on sale.
Covering about 800 hectares, it will eventually incorporate between 7500 to 8000 dwellings and a town centre connected to a train station on the new South West Rail Link.
It is about 30 kilometres from Sydney’s central business district.
Landcom Corporate Marketing general manager Robert Sullivan said Edmondson Park would help the NSW Government to deliver its 10,000 lot program and respond to the future housing needs of Sydney.
“Public transport and a train station centrally located in the new town centre are at the heart of the new town,” he said.
“Edmondson Park is a highly connected community which offers choice in housing, transport, education and lifestyle to satisfy the needs of the community from singles to families and retirees.”
When it’s completed, the Edmondson Park town centre will also have a main street with a supermarket, shops, cafes and restaurants, commercial and community spaces, he said.
Edmondson Park will also include two new public primary and one new high school and a 150-hectare regional park and multiple local parks and sporting facilities.
Meanwhile, a bus priority road is proposed to link the future train station with the Parramatta to Liverpool Bus Transit Way.
Landcom developed the 309-hectare site out of the former Ingleburn Army Camp which it bought from the Department of Defence in August 2011.
