Invest in The Hills

The Hills is an affluent area projected to grow significantly.

Location

The Hills has significant white collar labour force, comprising 80% of employed residents. The well-educated and professional workforce is reflected by a high average annual income in The Hills of over $120,000, which is 27.4% above the Sydney average.

The Hills provides a high level of amenity for residents including several modern shopping precincts, hospitals, schools and employment.

The Hills has historically recorded strong growth for apartments, confidently recording an average 4.3% over ten years and 20.8% growth in the twelve months to June 2014.

Also delivering strong rental returns, The Hills enjoys an indicative gross rental yield of 5.1%, for the 12 months to June 2014, which is above the Sydney apartment average of 4.5%.

North West Rail Link

The $8.3 billion North West Rail Link is currently Australia’s largest public transport infrastructure project and a priority rail project for the NSW Government. When completed, the rail link will be the first fully-automated rapid transit rail system in Australia.

North West Rail Link

The project will deliver eight new railway station and 4,000 commuter car parking spaces to Sydney’s growing North West and is estimated to be completed in 2018. Trains will operate every four minutes in the peak – or at least 15 trains an hour. Customers won’t need a timetable – you’ll just turn up and go.

The North West Rail Link will transform The Hills and over the coming decades an extra 200,000 people will move into the North West Growth Centre, taking its population above 600,000 – a staggering 33% population increase creating unprecedented apartment demand.

Why Norwest

The Norwest Business Park and retail precincts are North-West Sydney’s employment, shopping, dining and recreation destination, providing an outstanding opportunity to link business and pleasure with easy urban living.

The Hills is benefiting from over $12 billion in infrastructure projects, including the North West Rail Link – Australia’s largest public transport infrastructure project, directly connecting The Hills to Sydney CBD in just 35 minutes, with trains every 4 minutes in peak times once completed.

Other current projects include the Hills M2 Motorway upgrade, Norwest Private Hospital expansion and Castle Towers Shopping Centre expansion.

The Hills is expected to provide upward of 58,000 new jobs by 2031, and Norwest is home to some of Australia’s top companies including Woolworths, The Reserve Bank of Australia, PWC, Optus and the Commonwealth Bank.

The Norwest community is also serviced by Norwest Marketown, Hillsong Church, several schools, lakeside cafes and restaurants as well as Norwest Private Hospital.

Oakmont is perfectly positioned to capitalise on demand from The Hills’ urban Gen-Y professionals, as well as empty-nesters.
