Located in Denham Court, East Leppington, Willowdale is a fast-growing master-planned community in Sydney’s South West Growth Area. On completion, Willowdale will be home to around 10,000 residents and feature around 25ha of parks and playgrounds, a shopping and community hub and a new primary school.
The new shopping centre is anchored by a 3,800sqm full-line Coles and 12 specialty shops, with 260 car spaces.
