Bank Street - Blackwattle Bay Marina and public space

The NSW Government is building a new marina and public boardwalk as part of the Bays Precinct Growth Centre.

A new marina and public space is being built by the NSW Government at 5 - 11 Bank Street, Pyrmont.

The project is part of the Bays Precinct redevelopment which aims to develop a bustling public destination along the waterfront around Rozelle Bay.

The development will include the Blackwattle Bay Marina and a public space with a waterside boardwalk.

NOV 2019Work starts

Early work on the project will start from mid-November 2019, with the establishment of the work site.

As part of this work, a number of activities will take place:

  • Fencing around the construction area
  • Stockpiling of materials and equipment
  • Establishment of site offices and storagesheds.

Once early work is complete, major work will start, subject to approvals and weather conditions.

Project information

The project will include building wet land and dry land facilities for a marina and wharf at Bank Street, Pyrmont.

  • Wet land work will include a fixed wharf, floating pontoons and a publicly accessible timber walkway.
  • Dry land work will include:
    • a demountable office building
    • a secured storage compound for LPG gas bottles to service stoves and BBQs on the vessels, 14 bins (3000 litres), and three ice machines
    • up to 11 storage single stacked shipping containers (approximately 50 cubic metres)
    • up to eight storage single stacked shipping containers (approximately 90 cubic metres),
    • wall-mounted business identification signage at the Bank Street frontage,
    • installation of a 5 kilolitre rainwater reuse tank,
    • protection measures for the ANZAC Bridge Pylon including fencing and bollards
    • a new vehicle crossover to Bank Street.

The facility has been approved for use of up to five years.

There will also be a boardwalk to give public access to the waterway which will form part of the Bays walk.

The Bank Street marina and wharf facilities will be built to provide an alternative site for the displaced Blackwattle Bay Marina which was moved from Pyrmont Bridge Road, Glebe to accommodate the development of the new Sydney Fish Market.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment held a public consultation session about the project in 2017. For details of the project history, as well as the consultation, visit the Major Projects webiste.

NSW Maritime is now responsible for the delivery of the Bank Street Marina project.
