School secures north west Sydney campus

The Glenwood site (outlined), about 33 kilometres from Sydney.

The Anglican Schools Corporation, for its vocational training arm, which it has been investing more heavily in for over a decade, has snapped up a Glenwood property opposite Bella Vista station.

The Old Windsor Road site was marketed to occupiers and developers.

On 2.25 hectares, the holding contains school infrastructure including demountable classrooms, a training centre, basketball court, playing field and congregation hall.

The purchaser intends to occupy, displacing the Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre, which has operated there for over three years.

The property also previously accommodated Trades North West.

Prior to 2013, it was surplus land to the adjoining Emmanuel Baptist Church.

In Melbourne, the Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre occupies a sprawling office abutting Brunswick train station, diagonally adjacent to the Railway Hotel which in 2021 was part taken over by comedian Mick Molloy (story continues below).

Growth corridor

Knight Frank’s Grant Bulpett and Mark Litwin marketed the Glenwood holding, zoned SP2 Infrastructure Establishment and Place of Worship; as well as occupiers, their campaign targeted residential and essential services developers, including in the aged care sector.

“This significant land holding sits in a premium postal code in Sydney’s north west, just 200 metres from the Bella Vista station and town centre, providing an easy connection to major employment, retail and lifestyle centres,” Mr Litwin said.

“The market was extremely active for this property and zoning,” Mr Bulpett added. “As part of a growth corridor, the need for training and education facilities in western Sydney is increasing as the population continues to expand”.
