Accommodation to Western Sydney
The NSW Government is implementing and monitoring the Government’s Accommodation Policy and Decade of Decentralisation policy. The aim of the policy is to consolidate offices and relocate public sector jobs from the Sydney CBD to metropolitan Sydney and regional locations with a particular focus on Western Sydney. The Government’s target is to relocate and consolidate more than 3,000 public servants to new offices in Western Sydney to stimulate economic growth, long-term job generation and provide jobs closer to home.
Development & Transactions and Property NSW, part of the Housing and Property Group within the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, have specialist teams who are currently working closely with Government departments to ensure their relocation requirements are met and Government’s targets are achieved. The Government's current accommodation projects include:
- Parramatta - Department of Education
- Parramatta - Department of Customer Service and Department of Planning, Industry and Environment
- Parramatta - Department of Communities and Justice
- Liverpool - Department of Communities and Justice
- Macquarie Park - Transport for NSW
Our team secured the largest ever government agency leasing commitment in Western Sydney, with more than 65,000 square metres of A-Grade office accommodation developed by Walker Corporation at 4 Parramatta Square. The new building will accommodate at least 5,000 public service roles by early 2020.
The 105 Phillip Street project on behalf of the Department of Education has been completed - 25,000 square meters of A grade office accommodation housing some 2,200 workers.
Our team sought proposals from the private sector to deliver a new building with a requirement for 5,000sqm of office space in Liverpool. A preferred party was selected and capital expenditure was approved to relocate functions of the former Department of Family and Community Services, now Department of Communities and Justice, to the new building. The new building is complete and houses around 350 staff.
Our team sought proposals from the private sector to deliver a new building for Government Accommodation with a requirement for 25,000sqm of office space utilising a vacant Government owned site in Macquarie Park. TfNSW will occupy this building.
The building is under development by the John Holland Group and will be complete in early 2020.
