Sod Turning Marks Start of Work at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility

Work has commenced on Western Parkland City Authority’s First Building – a visionary precinct that marks the start of construction for Australia’s newest city, Bradfield City Centre. The building includes a pilot of the new Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility.

Premier Dominic Perrottet was joined by Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade Alister Henskens, Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts and Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott at a Sod Turning Ceremony to mark the start of development.

Located within the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, the diverse, dynamic and sustainable global city precinct will unlock $10 billion in private investment.

“We are building a world-class city centre that will supercharge the creation of jobs and economic opportunities across Western Sydney.

This first building is the start of a game-changing and job-generating city centre that will transform Bradfield into a hive of economic activity for businesses and offer new services and attractions for residents across Western Sydney,” Mr Perrottet said

Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott said the start of construction marked a monumental moment for the residents of the Western Parkland City who will experience the Bradfield City Centre come to life on their doorstep.

“Western Sydney residents will soon see this empty paddock grow into a thriving city centre with world-class transport infrastructure.”

Once complete, research institutions and the wider industry will have access to some of the Advanced Manufacturing and Research Facility’s high-tech facilities including research equipment, a visitor centre and shared-use offices.

Team Taylor looks forward to bringing this iconic development to life.
