He found the total land value increased from $10.891 billion in 2008 to $14.177 billion in July 2011.

Residential land values generally increased strongly, while properties on main roads had just moderate increases in value and waterfront property generally remained steady or had slight decreases in value.

From 2010 to 2011, the median residential land price in Leichhardt increased 8.5% from $563,000 to $611,000.

Western found commercial land values in most main centres in Leichhardt had moderate to strong increases, with the exception of commercial land on Parramatta Road and Marion Street, which generally showed just a slight increase.

Year-on-year, the median commercial land price in Leichhardt increased 5% from $572,000 in 2010 to $603,000 in 2011.
