The New South Wales Government has appointed Multiplex to deliver the Sydney Fish Market redevelopment in Blackwattle Bay.
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 6000 square metres of new public space in a four-storey market hall setting.
It will include new restaurants, cafés, bars, fishmongers and specialty food retailers, as well as new public promenades, offices and commercial space and a ferry wharf.
The Sydney Fish Market will also include upgraded technology such as improved facilities to keep seafood fresher and allow for easier trade.
The redevelopment is set to create around 700 jobs throughout construction, with another 700 ongoing jobs once it opens in 2024.

Multiplex Regional Managing Director NSW David Ghannoum said the company is thrilled to be appointed to this iconic Sydney project and draw upon our extensive experience building submersed infrastructure.
“The redevelopment of the Sydney Fish Market is set to have a huge and positive impact on the local community as well as the fishing, construction and tourism industries and we couldn’t be more proud to help deliver this world-class development,” Ghannoum said.
The redevelopment is set to provide new open public spaces that allow for shared pedestrian and cycle paths and waterfront access from the market to Woolloomooloo.
Multiplex is aiming to achieve a 5-Star Green Star rating and is consulting with Australia’s leading marine habitat restoration specialists to identify ways to remove floating waste, improve water quality and enhance the recovery of marine life.
The existing Sydney Fish Market is one of the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest seafood market, in terms of variety, in the world. The market sources product both nationally and internationally and trades over 13,500 tonnes of seafood annually.
