The Walsh Bay Arts Precinct will deliver a public arts and cultural precinct for the community on Sydney’s famous waterfront. The redevelopment will combine the existing heritage with state-of-the-art facilities. RCC was appointed delivery partner for the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct redevelopment and is currently on site delivering Pier 2/3, working with Infrastructure NSW, Create NSW and the current and future tenants of the area. RCC successfully delivered Wharf 4/5 in December 2020.
The project will double the arts and cultural space at Walsh Bay, with the creation of new arts facilities and performance venues in Pier 2/3 and refurbished facilities in Wharf 4/5.
On completion, the revitalised Walsh Bay Arts precinct will be home to an expanded group of prestigious companies: Sydney Theatre Company, Sydney Dance Company, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Gondwana Choirs, The Song Company, Bell Shakespeare, Australian Chamber Orchestra and Australian Theatre for Young People. In their rejuvenated home these companies will add to the vibrancy and diversity of Sydney’s night time economy, increase cultural participation and enable a range of new local jobs.
