Historic Pier 2/3 is the last remaining undeveloped wharf in Sydney. The Pier has been activated for arts, cultural and creative purposes now and into the future.
Long Term Redevelopment of Pier 2/3
In July 2011, as part of the planning for long term redevelopment of Pier 2/3, six organisations were shortlisted as potential residents or users of the Pier. They are the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian Theatre for Young People, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Bell Shakespeare, Biennale of Sydney and Sydney Writers’ Festival. Discussions have been undertaken with these organisations in parallel with the development of a comprehensive Walsh Bay Arts Precinct.
The Master Plan for the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct was available for public comment from 14 November 2013 until 21 February 2014.
The Master Plan was further refined to a Concept Design, which was submitted as part of a Concept State Significant Development Application in 2014. The Department of Planning and Environment initiated a 30 day public exhibition period from 17 July 2014, seeking public submissions on the Concept State Significant Development Application. The Development Application was approved in May 2015.
Over the next two years detail and design planning for the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct will be undertaken.
