GROWING THE SOUTH-WEST | Bardia is part of a 'boom'

The South-West Growth Corridor is rapidly expanding, with Campbelltown one of the leaders of the transformation. According to latest figures from the population will grow to 275,778 by 2036, up 60 per cent on current numbers.

Significant investment in infrastructure development combined with massive population growth is creating a major metropolitan destination and engine room for the region's future prosperity. Suburbs benefiting include Bardia, Ingleburn and Bradbury.

One of the biggest land-holders in the South-West is Dahua Group, which is developing two masterplanned communities -- New Breeze at Bardia and Menangle Park comprising 5000+ lots.

Dahua's Eric Li said: "New Breeze at Bardia is quickly taking shape with about 350 residents living there now. Almost 1000 land parcels have also been sold. Buyers can see major infrastructure in place, including Edmondson Park station, Bardia Public School recently completing its $35m upgrade and Edmondson Park Town Centre progressing.

"It's our first major masterplanned development in NSW. We saw New Breeze at Bardia was in the middle of the burgeoning South-West and could see the potential of the land."

Kathleen Hadely, 28, is a speech pathologist at Campbelltown hospital who grew up at Ingleburn. She said: "I've lived and worked in the South-West all my life and seen the exponential growth first-hand. My focus was to find an investment property in a location that had the potential to deliver long-term capital gains. New Breeze at Bardia is that place.

"It's half-way between Campbelltown and Liverpool, home to the two biggest hospitals in the area. Western Sydney Airport will be a short drive and there's major infrastructure already in place, including Edmondson Park station and Bardia Public School. I can see several cranes building Edmondson Park Town Centre which will be a great shopping and entertainment destination."

Campbelltown's closeness to the new airport (30 minutes' drive) will give the area an economic advantage to leverage off local and international investment opportunities and will be a crucial part of wider Sydney's future productivity.
