Blacktown. More office space needed

The Blacktown CBD won't play a part in government plans that could transform it into a regional city until it is more attractive to developers, said Elias Kinnas, president, of the Blacktown Chamber of Commerce. He said Blacktown needed more office space before it could accommodate more white-collar jobs. He pointed to several stalled developments worth a total of hundreds of millions of dollars that would have provided office and retail space in Blacktown, such as, a 15-storey mixed-use development approved for the McDonalds' site on Sunnyholt Road and a commercial redevelopment of the three-hectare Blacktown RSL site would have transformed the city. He said developers did not want to invest in Blacktown until other major developments attracted more business.
