The Illawarra's peak business body believes Wollongong is in the midst of a construction boom that parallels Sydney's.
The Illlawarra Business Chamber says as we get into 2019 there are 16 projects under construction in the Wollongong CBD alone, with some nearing completion.
The IBC says coupled with around $600 million-worth of investment over coming years it will result in population growth and an increase in economic activity that will benefit the entire Illawarra.
