Sydney transport overhaul could benefit property investment

November 04, 2011

A planned overhaul of New South Wales' transport plan is likely to bring some relief to Sydney, which is suffering from "overstretched infrastructure", according to DTZ.

New information from the research group indicates that after a subdued period of economic growth across the state this year - due in part to January's devastating floods and a heavy reliance on the service sector - 2012-13 could see stronger growth.

This may also lead to rental growth for Sydney commercial property next year due to a reduced amount of available new stock..

 

"Despite the lack of rental growth in 2011 and more nervousness in the leasing market, we expect 2012 to see rental growth partly due to the lack of new stock coming onto the market," the DTZ report asserted.

Some 93,000 sq m of commercial property is set to become part of the Sydney CBD's supply chain next year - a below-average figure which is likely to increase further in 2013.

Over the past year, $180 million has been set aside to develop light rail transportation in central Sydney - which the city claims is its largest single investment since the 2000 Olympics.
