The NSW Government has revealed the Sydney Fish Market’s final design, which will include new public wharves, a waterfront promenade and community spaces.
The fish market will move to a new site in the heart of Blackwattle Bay and is scheduled to open in 2023.
The building will feature a unique timber and aluminium roof inspired by fish scales. The new market will also feature an expanded seafood cooking school, food kiosks, restaurants, bars and outdoor spaces for social events.
“This is an incredibly exciting day for us, for NSW fishers and fishmongers and for seafood lovers everywhere,” says Bryan Skepper, Sydney Fish Market general manager.
“The new building includes everything our customers are looking for – more public space, more dining options, boardwalks and a community feel.
“It also delivers what our fishers and fishmongers need in 21st century technology with improved facilities that help keep the seafood fresh and make it easy to trade.”
The existing fish market will continue to operate during the construction process, which is slated to commence mid-2019.
