Plans to revitalise Blackwattle Bay in Sydney into an entertainment and cultural hub have been revealed to the public.
NSW Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the rezoning would also include new public open space to join up a 15-kilometre harbourside walk.
“Our vision for Blackwattle Bay would see new public open space equivalent to one and a half football fields and a foreshore promenade that will complete the 15-kilometre continuous harbourside walk from Woolloomooloo to Rozelle Bay,” Stokes said.
“Twelve redevelopment sites are proposed which will boost new housing by 1550 dwellings and create the opportunity for more than 5,600 jobs.
“These plans are part of the broader Pyrmont Place Strategy to revitalise what is the western gateway to the CBD and accommodate for future growth.

“Sydney Fish Market has been home to world-class seafood for decades but it’s time to give this much-loved location a makeover for the Sydney community and visitors.”
The Sydney Fish Market is being relocated to the head of Blackwattle Bay, with the site of the old fish market being turned unto a mixed-use precinct.
Stokes said the plan for Blackwattle Bay included new transport options to connect the precinct with the CBD and Greater Sydney, such as the new Pyrmont Metro station, pedestrian and cycling links.
The Blackwattle Bay State Significant Precinct Plan is on public exhibition until 6 August 2021.
