As Sydney Markets prepares for its move to the Aerotropolis in Western Sydney, plans are already underway for a significant urban renewal project at its existing Flemington site.
Located between the Sydney CBD and the budding city of Parramatta, the soon to be vacated site looks set to be transformed into a green urban village, dubbed Flemington 2036. The concept designed by Sydney architect Tony Owen, includes a mix of urban agriculture, commercial offerings, high-density living, shared facilities and a new market hall.
The entire Flemington 2036 development will be self sustainable with the food grown on site. The proposal, is predicted to support up to 10,000 new residents and 4,000 workers, with an option of providing a new station on the proposed Metro West line to further connect the site to jobs in Parramatta and in the Sydney CBD.
