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
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.
