Premier global construction company Multiplex has been appointed by the NSW State Government to deliver the long-awaited Sydney Fish Market redevelopment in Blackwattle Bay, expected to breathe new life into the world-class Sydney landmark. Designed by Danish architect 3XN along with BVN and Aspect Studios, and located adjacent to the existing Fish Market in Pyrmont, the new Sydney Fish Market development will deliver over 6,000 square metres of new public space in a four-storey market hall setting.
It will comprise new restaurants, cafés, bars, fishmongers and specialty food retailers, as well as new public promenades, offices and commercial space and a ferry wharf. The new Sydney Fish Market is also set to deliver much needed upgraded technology including improved facilities to keep seafood fresher and allow for easier trade.
The innovative design of the new Sydney Fish Market includes a distinctive wave-shaped and scale-patterned roof paying homage to the fishing industry. Another feature of the new design is a more visibly accessible auction area giving the visiting public a deeper understanding of the seafood supply chain.
Construction is set to commence in 2021 with completion due in 2024.
