The $750 million investment from the NSW Government will help the new Sydney Fish Market in Blackwattle Bay become one of Australia’s leading tourist attractions. Visitor numbers are expected to double to over five million a year.
Scheduled to open in 2024, the project will include public promenades, a ferry wharf and more than 30,000 square metres of public open space.
The sustainability features of the new building will include advanced water efficiency and solar electricity generation. It will have a 6-star green star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
Danish architects 3XN designed the building in partnership with Sydney firms VN and Aspect Studios.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the new fish market will be a boon for regional communities.
“It will showcase the very best seafood from along the NSW coast,” Ms Berejiklian said.
The development applications for the demolition of the existing wharves and the construction of the new fish market will soon go on public exhibition.
