The NSW Government’s new Sydney Fish Market project, forming part of the revitalisation of Blackwattle Bay, now has a range of tenancies available for lease. 

With $750 million invested by the NSW Government, the waterfront destination and largest working fish market in the Southern Hemisphere, is set to offer a world-class visitor experience. Designed by renowned architects 3XN, the purpose-built facility will showcase Australia’s vibrant seafood industry and culinary culture of Sydney.

Spanning 30,000 square metres, the new Sydney Fish Market will introduce 12,000 square metres of retail space as it expects to double current annual visitation, welcoming approximately six million people from around the world.

“Sydney Fish Market is already so much more than a fish market – we are a one-stop-shop for Sydney food-lovers, with a fantastic butcher, bakery, green-grocer, artisanal deli, and bottle-shop on site, as well as our world-class wet seafood retailers. Our new state-of-the-art facilities present an opportunity to expand the Market’s offerings even further, and deliver a truly one-of-a-kind visitor experience,” Sydney Fish Market CEO, Greg Dyer said.

Retail Strategy Group has been appointed to develop the retail strategy, curate and lease the new Sydney Fish Market precinct. There is 19 new opportunities for lease ranging from smaller tenancies, ideal for merchants and grab and go options, to larger tenancies suitable for restaurants or a brewery, which are open to all food and beverage businesses. 

“This is an exciting, once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of Sydney’s next iconic destination as one of the foundational retail partners. Against the backdrop of Blackwattle Bay, Sydney Fish Market’s restaurants, bars and hospitality offerings will trade seven days a week. From an early morning coffee and pastry, through to an ice-cream after fish and chips, the Market will be a place for everyone,” Retail Strategy Group founder and director, Angela Bonnefin said.

“Our approach to the leasing and curation of the new market is simple. We want the finest operators in each category to join us on a journey to create a world class fresh food marketplace. Everyone is eligible to apply through the Expression of Interest phase and we can’t wait to work with the best-in-class retailers to bring this iconic project to life.”

EOI submission deadline is 31 August 2023.
