post-header

Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport (WSI) has announced a new Business Precinct, inviting businesses to join the 24/7 greenfield site in one of Australia’s fastest growing regions.

Plans for the precinct are well underway, with WSI establishing a 50/50 joint venture partnership with leading Australian property group Charter Hall Group (Charter Hall) to deliver the first stage of the Business Precinct.

WSI CEO Simon Hickey, Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King, and Charter Hall Industrial & Logistics CEO Richard Stacker turned the first sod at the Business Precinct site earlier today.

Hickey said stage one of the precinct’s development is expected to generate 400 jobs during construction, with another 2,000 permanent jobs anticipated once it’s fully occupied and operational.

“Western Sydney International Airport is the engine room for growth and development across the region that’s attracting billions of dollars of investment and generating thousands of training and job opportunities,” Hickey said.

“We’ll be getting on with the job of building the precinct over the coming months, with the first phase of works due for completion by the end of next year – at which point extensive testing of the airport will be underway as we prepare to welcome passengers and airlines in late 2026.”

The precinct will initially serve thousands of workers that are building the airport and its extensive connecting infrastructure, later adapting to meet the evolving needs of airport customers and the local community.

“We’re pleased to partner with Charter Hall on the delivery of the precinct – their extensive investment and development expertise across the nation will be a vital asset as plans to procure new business customers progress this year,” Hickey said.

Upon completion, the 20-hectare mixed-use development will include up to 40,000 square metres of modern warehouse space, ancillary offices, a 150-room hotel that will service flight crews, a service station and convenience retail, including food and beverage outlets, as well as gym and conference facilities.

Construction of the first stage of the Business Precinct also includes internal and external roads, connections to arterial roads and landscaping.

Charter Hall Industrial & Logistics CEO, Richard Stacker said Charter Hall has been working in close partnership with WSI and has a deep understanding of the importance and impact of the airport to not only Western Sydney, but NSW and Australia more broadly.

“To achieve success in a project of this scale, a true partnership is crucial. We have a track record of aligning with our joint venture partners’ ambitions, and bring expertise in developing, owning and managing high quality facilities that attract high quality tenant customers, for the long-term,” Stacker said.

Businesses seeking more information about the new precinct opportunity are invited to visit www.charterhall.com.au/wsi-bpso for further details.

Today’s announcement follows the release of the Western Sydney Airport Business Precinct Stage One Major Development Plan for public consultation last year, which was approved by the Federal Government in November 2023.

WSI is on track to open to international, domestic and air cargo services in late 2026.
