Blacktown to boom on multi-billion-dollar deal

Blacktown City Council has entered into a ground breaking multi-billion-dollar agreement with Walker to transform the city. Walker will invest over $2 billion in revitalising the Central Business District, creating 1,000 construction jobs and adding 4,500 permanent jobs, contributing $920 million annually to the city's economy.

Led by Executive Chairman Lang Walker AO, the project aligns with the council's vision for the Blacktown Brain and Spinal Institute, introducing state-of-the-art facilities and boosting education, retail, and commercial sectors in the CBD.

The masterplan, to be refined in the coming months, emphasises vibrant, people-friendly spaces through innovative architecture. Blacktown, already the most populous city in NSW, is set for unprecedented growth, reaching 615,000 residents by 2041.

Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM sees the project as a game-changer, ensuring world-class infrastructure, education, and open space for Blacktown residents. Business Western Sydney Executive Director David Borger expects Walker's visionary approach to replicate the success seen in Parramatta.

The strategic partnership marks a major win for Blacktown, promising economic prosperity, job creation, and a modernised urban landscape. Residents eagerly anticipate the transformation that aims to make Blacktown the best in the west.
