Pier 2/3

To make way for the Walsh Bay Redevelopment Program, Pier 2/3 has now closed its doors for short-term hires.

Scheduled to complete in 2019, the exciting Walsh Bay Redevelopment Program kicks-off in mid-2017 and will feature:

  • a new waterfront square between Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5
  • use of the precinct for arts festivals, community events and pop-ups with potential to include restaurants, cafes and bars
  • provision of flexible and adaptable spaces in Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5 for arts and cultural activities
  • events within the waterfront square and outdoor spaces
  • heritage modifications and interventions required to Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5 including stairs, balcony and roof modifications.

Long Term Redevelopment of Pier 2/3

Seven prestigious arts companies have recently made long-term commitments to the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct and will make significant funding contributions. Australian Chamber Orchestra and Bell Shakespeare Company will join the Australian Theatre for Young People, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Sydney Dance Company, Philharmonia Choirs (including the Song Company) and Gondwana Choirs in the precinct.

A commercial strategy to ensure a dynamic mix of commercial, retail, food and beverage outlets in the precinct, along with processes for appointing commercial operators of the Waterfront Square and Pier 2/3 event space, is currently being prepared.

The Concept Design was completed and submitted as part of a Concept State Significant Development Application (DA) in 2014, which was approved in May 2015.

The concept design was a refinement of the Masterplan, completed in 2013. The Vision Report and Master Plan were created through consultation between Arts NSW and the proposed arts companies.
