WCN Editorial Team 19 Nov 2020 OCEANIA BUILDINGS

The state government of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia has selected Multiplex, a construction company, for the redevelopment of the Sydney Fish Market at Blackwattle Bay in Sydney.

Located adjacent to the existing Fish Market in Pyrmont, the project has been designed by Danish architect 3XN, BVN and Aspect Studios.

The new redevelopment is expected to deliver more than 6,000m2 of new public space in a four-storey market hall setting.

The new Sydney Fish Market will include new restaurants, cafés, bars, fishmongers and speciality food retailers, new public promenades, offices and commercial space as well as a ferry wharf.

It is expected to deliver the upgraded technology along with improved facilities to keep seafood fresher and facilitate easy trade.

The design of the redevelopment project will include a distinctive wave-shaped and scale-patterned roof paying homage to the fishing industry as well as a more visibly accessible auction area.

The project will also provide all new open public spaces that will allow shared pedestrian and cycle paths and waterfront access from Sydney Fish Market to Woolloomooloo as well as improve access to nearby public transport links.

During the redevelopment works, the existing Sydney Fish Market will continue to operate and trade without disruption.

Construction on the project is expected to begin next year and is estimated to be completed in 2024.

During the construction phase, the project is expected to create nearly 700 jobs and more than 700 on-going jobs when opened.
