Freo's View

Fantastic news for Fremantle today that the ADINA group will build a $ 120 million, 142 room apartment hotel on the Woolstores shopping centre site owned by Freo-based company Silverleaf. The shopping centre will also be upgraded.

The hotel will mainly feature one bed apartments, 60 studios and a few two bed rooms.

Construction will start next year and completion will be in 2018.

This is extremely good news for Fremantle after the delay of the Hilton Doubletree hotel development at Point Street, which might not happen at all when a new hotel is being built just over the road.

The Adina Hotel operators hope to take advantage of the cruise ship industry and people attending conferences in Fremantle.

All we need now is for the Department of Housing announcing they will move into Kings Square and Fremantle would be well under way of economic recovery and support for our retailers and hospitality industry.

My real big hope now is that we will get an exceptionally beautiful building on the Woolstores site. Come on Gerard O’Brien, you and Silverleaf can do it!!!

    Hi Roel

    Readers of your blog will recall that I have mentioned several times in the past that the Kings Square Project Plan A was for a hotel to be built on the site of the current Council Administration building. It was Toga Group, Adina is one of their brands, who put a proposal in writing to the Council and to Sirona Capital to operate a hotel on that site, with a keen interest in invigorating the Fremantle Town Hall in the process.

    In my time with the City of Fremantle Gerard may have, on several occasions, expressed skepticism about the capacity of the City’s partner in the Kings Square Project to bring that Project to fruition.

    I understand Gerard would have liked to have brought the Myer building back in 2011. Perhaps the opportunity will come again?

    Kind regards

    That could put a nail in the coffin of the Hilton project.

    Hope it is not another white or grey box that looks as if it will last 20 years like most of the new stuff. Will the shops have to close?
