Rouse Hill Banner

The Rouse Hill Town Centre is located approximately 39 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD within Baulkham Hills Local Government Area (LGA) and directly adjacent to the Blacktown LGA. These two council areas are two of the largest and fastest growing LGAs in NSW. The nearest major centres are Blacktown 11 kilometres to the south, Parramatta 19 kilometres to the south-west and Castle Hill 8 kilometres to the east.

The total greenfield development site in which the Town Centre is located is 122 hectares in size and is marketed as ‘The New Rouse Hill’ (to differentiate it from the existing adjacent suburb of Rouse Hill). The 12 hectare Town Centre component is located on the western edge of the site immediately east of Windsor Road opposite Schofields Road.

At completion, the 122 hectare, $1.2 billion masterplanned development is expected to house 4,500 new residents in up to 1,800 new dwellings, generate up to 12,000 permanent jobs within the Town Centre, and accommodate approximately 34 hectares of open space. The Town Centre component is being developed in two stages – Stage One is complete and includes 65,000m² of retail and commercial floor space, while Stage Two is due for completion in 2008 and will bring the total floor space up to 200,000 m². As well as the retail uses, the Town Centre development includes:

  • 11,600m² of commercial space, comprising offices, gymnasium and educational facilities
  • 5,000m² of health and medical facilities
  • 2,400 m² for a library and a community centre
  • An interchange for buses that run between surrounding districts and join the Parramatta - Rouse Hill Transitway (an interchange with the future North-West Rail Link is also planned)
  • Shop-top housing
  • Predominantly underground parking 

The Rouse Hill Town Centre is envisaged by Landcom to be ‘the commercial, retail, transport and social hub of the expanding north west region’. Once it and surrounding release areas are complete, it is expected to become the service hub for around 250,000 residents of the north-western area of Sydney.
