Syd­ney Fish Mar­ket 2.0

What is it: A pimped up Fish Mar­ket, twice the size and just as fresh When will it open? 2020

Time Out (Sydney) - - FUTURE SYDNEY -

Syd­ney Fish Mar­ket has been in op­er­a­tion at Black­wat­tle Bay since 1966 – and it’s long due a facelift. Ear­lier this year, Dan­ish firm 3XN Ar­chi­tects came on board as the de­sign­ers for the $250 mil­lion ren­o­va­tion. The plan is to build a new 35,000m2 mar­ket (twice its cur­rent size) ad­ja­cent to the cur­rent site – a space cur­rently oc­cu­pied by a con­crete sup­plier. The re­ju­ve­nated Fish Markets would in­clude decked­out din­ing ar­eas on the fore­shore with a ca­pac­ity for 3,000 pa­trons; there’ll be pub­lic board­walks, a siz­zling hot Syd­ney Seafood School, an im­proved whole­sale mar­ket with auc­tions open to the pub­lic, and pos­si­bly a rooftop bar. They’re shady on the de­tails for that one. No doubt the fresh new look will at­tract even more tourists to Pyr­mont: Syd­ney Fish Markets al­ready re­ceive three mil­lion visi­tors ev­ery year, and Ur­banGrowth NSW (the de­vel­op­ers be­hind the Bays Precinct De­vel­op­ment) says the new markets would have the fa­cil­i­ties to re­ceive twice that num­ber. Oh boy! Con­struc­tion is due to be­gin next year and they reckon the rib­bon will be ready to cut by 2020.
