Norwest Business Park is a thriving business community strategically located with direct access to Sydney’s orbital motorway system, providing easy access to the CBD, airport and Sydney’s manufacturing and distribution heartland.
The Business Park has grown to accommodate over 20,000 employees, with expansion expected to increase capacity to over 35,000 employees.
This growth needed more infrastructure to accommodate the increase in people, and there are three infrastructure projects currently underway to help service the area. These include the North-West Rail line (with two stations in Norwest - one at Norwest Boulevarde/Brookhollow Avenue, the other at Old Windsor Road/Celebration Drive), the upgrade of the Windsor Road entry to Norwest and the M2 upgrade.
The Business Park has a wide range of space available accommodating companies such as Woolworths, Resmed, BBraun, Inchcape (Subaru) and Capital Finance, and a plethora of small and medium businesses. It is also home to the Hills Private Hospital and Hospital for Specialist Surgery. The Hills Shire has the highest proportion of businesses between three to four people and this is reflected by the amount of quality office space available between 50–150m2.
In recognition of the key role the Norwest Business Park plays within the Hills Shire, the Hills Shire Council has relocated its council chambers within the Business Park.
Norwest Business Park has grown into a full service, self sufficient area, which includes:
• Post office / Banks (business and retail)
• Restaurants / Bars and Cafes
• Childcare Centres
• Gyms / Drycleaners
• Two shopping centres incorporating both a Woolworths and Coles supermarket.
• Recreational Lakes / Walking and Bicycle tracks
Prior to the development of Norwest Business Park, the majority of non-residential developers in the area had concentrated on purely industrial projects. Norwest Business Park signified a major shift in development thinking: instead of developing properties for mainly industrial purposes, a significant proportion of office and retail space became part of the picture.
In recent years, in addition to a number of sites being developed purely for residential use, a number of proposals to redevelop sites in the Business Park have been made, some of which include large scale high-density residential development. Accordingly, the Norwest Business Park will be an integrated precinct incorporating a wide range of business, leisure and residential uses.
