About the project
An exciting public waterfront space will be created in the ferry basin between Princes Wharf and Queens Wharf to provide a focus and connection for downtown businesses, residents, visitors and locals.
A place for respite and relaxation, it will be an oasis inspired by our coastal and cultural environment. Following the 36th America's Cup, the space will be further extended towards Queens Wharf.
The Downtown public space will consist of a new piled wharf structure over the water, enabled by the relocation of existing ferry piers to the western side of Queens Wharf as part of the Ferry Basin Redevelopment project.
Estimated to run from late 2019 to late 2020.
