Infrastructure NSW (INSW) has selected Turner & Townsend to offer project management, superintendent and tenancy coordination services for the redevelopment of the Sydney Fish Market at Blackwattle Bay in Sydney, Australia.

Located in a prime location on Sydney’s Harbour, the new Sydney Fish Market is also within one kilometre from the western edge of the Sydney CBD.

To be constructed over the water in the bay, this new market in a four-storey building will house specialty food retailers, wholesale fishmongers, restaurants, cafes and bars.

This building will be located adjacent 4,700m2 of public open space.

The development of the project has been divided into two phases.

Under the Early Works phase, the project involves demolition of several post-industrial structures, while the Main Works phase involves building of around 30,000sqm of building, surrounding wharf structures and public spaces, offering access to the water.

The Sydney Fish Market project is part of the wider Blackwattle Bay redevelopment, an urban renewal project.

The Blackwattle Bay precinct planning area includes around 8.4ha of land between Bank Street and Blackwattle Bay.

Turner & Townsend managing director for Asia Pacific Anooj Oodit said: “Combining new world-class facilities with stunning design, the new Sydney Fish Market is set to establish a new destination for the Blackwattle Bay area. We are pleased to be bringing our technical expertise and track record on complex major projects across the world to bear on this important development.

“At a time when investment is so critical to the economic recovery, the decision to accelerate the project is a mark of confidence in the construction sector and the long-term value that this project will unlock for Sydney let alone Australia.”
