The NSW Government has just revealed plans for a $250 million dollar revamp of the iconic Sydney Fish Market in Blackwattle Bay. The redevelopment is part of UrbanGrowth NSW’s major transformation of the Bays Precinct which includes Rozelle Bay, Glebe Island and White Bay Power Station.
ASPECT Studios, BVN, Wallner Weiss and GXN join the international design consortium led by Danish architects 3XN. The team will work closely with UrbanGrowth NSW, Sydney Fish Market, Government Architect’s Office, City of Sydney and key stakeholders “to create a world-class food and dining destination on the inner harbour that will be dynamic, sustainable, and sympathetic to the local area.” – Barry Mann, UrbanGrowth NSW
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said “The Fish Market is one of Sydney’s most popular attractions and it’s fantastic to see the incredible international interest in this exciting project.”
New public domain upgrades will include the foreshore promenade, links to the adjoining Wentworth Park and the continuous public realm around Blackwattle Bay. Construction is scheduled to start in late 2018.
