HANSEN Yuncken will deliver the stage one redevelopment of the $750 million Sydney Fish Market.
Stage one works will also include the removal of marine piles and any repairs to the existing sea wall, and preparation of the site for safe handover for main works.
Infrastructure NSW is finalising a tender process for the major construction phase, which is expected to start in early 2021.
The current fish market site nearby will remain fully operational for four years while the new site is being built.
Community feedback has been invited for plans to revitalise Blackwattle Bay, anchored by the new Sydney Fish Market and designed to deliver 4,700 sqm of public open space and return inaccessible parts of Sydney Harbour to the public for the first time in decades.
Visitor levels are forecast to double from three million each year to six million over the next decade.
Planning consent for the project was granted in June.
Infrastructure NSW, on behalf of the NSW Government, submitted two associated State Significant Development Applications to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for assessment, including a concept DA for the first stage of the development, and a DA for construction of the new Market.
