Leading international property and infrastructure group Lendlease is the latest major corporation to now call Western Sydney home, with the global giants opening their new office in Parramatta today.
Local councils and MPs, along with Minister for Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres MP, were on hand to officially launch Lendlease’s Western Sydney base, located in Phillip Street Parramatta, which builds on its deep history with the region.
“Lendlease’s connection with Western Sydney dates back nearly 60 years to company founder Dick Dusseldorp who was one of the first to recognise the potential of the region when he purchased land for development near Campbelltown,” Chairman of the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue, Christopher Brown said.
“And Lendlease has been making a positive mark on Western Sydney ever since, through the development of our major roads, shopping centres in Macarthur and Bankstown, sporting infrastructure such as the Sydney Aquatic Centre at Sydney Olympic Park and residential communities in the south-west and north-west.
“Today’s office opening is an extension of the legacy forged by Dick Dussledorp and reaffirms Lendlease’s commitment to helping support the growth of Western Sydney.”
Mr Brown said that in addition to Lendlease’s history in the region, it was also currently at the forefront of some of the region’s most significant projects, including the development of the Western Sydney Airport, Northern Road and the Western Sydney Stadium.
“The success of Lendlease has been built around its focus on people, and the creation of places, and a commitment to deliver first-class developments that respond to the needs of its communities.
“For a region that has, at times, been let down by poor design and developers only interested in making a dollar, today’s announcement is a win not just for Western Sydney, but for the creation of better connected, liveable and sustainable communities.”
The new Lendlease Western Sydney Office includes smart, collaborative and flexible spaces for up to 100 employees. Lendlease’s international headquarters at Barangaroo South, Kingsgate in Brisbane and the new workplace at Melbourne Quarter, which opened earlier this month, have all informed the office’s design, which is underpinned by a team-based working environment.
Almost 40 percent of Lendlease’s Sydney workforce are based in Western Sydney.
