The iconic Sydney Fish Market in Australia has embarked on a major transformation valued at A$750 million (US$497 million), with works covering the market itself and surrounding bays.
The reimagined Sydney Fish Market is set to open in late-2024, and is expected to be the “most significant building by the harbour since the Sydney Opera House” for the destination.
Post-transformation, the purpose-built, operational fish market will also be a major culinary attraction. Its distinctive wave-shaped and scale-patterned roof will pay homage to the fishing industry, while simultaneously collecting rainwater for use. The amphitheatre staircases and the foreshore promenade will wrap over the working wharf, allowing visitors a glimpse into the market’s operations.
Sydney Fish Market plans to activate the world-class site through an ongoing calendar of events, engaging and educational activations, and vibrant tourism experiences.
