Dutch architects OMA will work alongside Hassell of Sydney and international firmPopulous to deliver the 20-hectare masterplan, adding the new leisure complex to the north of Pier Street and new residential neighbourhood The Haymarket on the site of the existing Sydney Entertainment Centre and car park.
“This project will redefine Sydney as a global city and create one of the world’s great meeting and entertainment destinations,” commented Destination Sydney’s chief executive Malcolm Macintyre. “Not only will it become a beacon for international visitors for conventions and events but will also build on the appeal of the Darling Harbour area for Sydney-siders creating an entertainment hub that promises to reconnect and re-energise the city.”
A phased redevelopment will see the existing Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre close in December 2013, while the current Sydney Entertainment Centre will remain open until December 2015. Construction is set to complete in late 2016.
