“Our vision for Blackwattle Bay [includes] a new open public space equivalent to a football field and a half and a foreshore promenade that will complement the continuous 15 km harbor promenade from Woolloomooloo to Rozelle Bay, ”said Stokes.
“Twelve redevelopment projects are proposed, which will boost the construction of new housing with 1,550 housing units and create the opportunity for more than 5,600 jobs.
“These plans are part of Pyrmont Place’s larger strategy to revitalize what is the western gateway to the CBD and accommodate future growth.

The plan would transition the remaining industrial and port areas to a mix of commercial, residential, recreational and entertainment uses at the site, which is close to public transportation, including the recently announced Pyrmont metro station, as well as the CBD.
