It is one of the newest communities in the region and it is designed to "bring the inner west" to southwest Sydney.

Construction may have only recently got under way at Ed. Square but prospective buyers are already jumping on board with more than 5500 expressions of interest in the development since the start of the year.

Ed. Square will bring 992 apartments and 890 terrace homes adjacent to Edmondson Park railway station.

While it may only look like a construction site at the moment, Ed. Square is ready to be transformed, with the first homeowners looking to move in by 2019.

Construction on a town square almost as large as the Rhodes Waterside shopping complex has started and will bring with it an "eat street", a five-screen cinema, supermarket, a tavern with live music and various other retail shop fronts.

Ed. Square design director George Massoud said several popular eateries from the Liverpool and Fairfield areas had been approached to establish restaurants in the area.

"We want to bring what we call our 'local heroes' to Ed. Square," he said "Those people who residents will already know." Several eateries, the cinema and supermarket will open next year on a 2400sq m site to coincide with the first residents moving in.

Fraser Property general manager residential NSW Nigel Edgar said the new community was within walking distance of Edmondson Park station no matter where you lived in the development, providing access to the Sydney CBD and a future connection via the South West Rail Link directly to the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.

Mr Edgar said a mix of urban housing surrounded by green space and bushland would create a vibrant community immersed in an active lifestyle around an urban centre that was entirely "walkable".

"We've designed things so there will only be limited traffic out the front of the home for visitation," he said.

"We want the space out the front to be a communal area for people to engage in social activities and for kids to be able to play."

"Ed. Square is meant to be entirely walkable. You will be able to walk to the shops, to the cinema, to the restaurants and to the train station."

"There are a number of parks and we're surrounded by regional parkland." Mr Edgar said the development was the first of its type in the region.

"Our idea is that we're bringing the inner weststyle of living to outer southwest Sydney, which is unique," he said.
