This week Sydney Harbour Federation Trust relaunched the precinct as Sub Base Platypus, and is now calling for expressions of interest from commercial tenants to lease and redevelop the site.

The $23.8 million Platypus Renewal Project will transform the space into a public domain suitable for events and exhibitions, complete with visitor accommodation, restaurants and cafes, art spaces and business tenancies.

Parts of the site are expected to be opened to the public from as early as mid 2018. Image: Sydney Harbour Federation Trust.
