Create NSW is working with the Powerhouse to deliver the Powerhouse Ultimo Renewal project.

The Powerhouse Ultimo Renewal is a transformative $480-$500 million investment by the NSW Government to establish a world-class museum that will significantly contribute to an important and developing part of Sydney.

The renewal will see Powerhouse Ultimo deliver a programming focus on design and fashion, presenting exhibitions that showcase the Powerhouse Collection, international exclusive exhibitions and programs that support the creative industries.

The expansion will deliver renewed and expanded exhibition and public space, connecting the Powerhouse Museum to the City by re-orienting the Museum to the Goods Line and connecting to adjacent precincts.

A significant investment in the development of a creative industries precinct will also deliver subsidised studio and workspaces at Ultimo for creative industries and will deliver a thriving active precinct that will contribute to the growing night-time economy.
