DAP REFUSES EIGHT-STOREY BUILDING IN ADELAIDE STREET
A WA Joint Development Assessment Panel this morning rejected the application by the Yolk Property Group for a very boring eight-storey apartment development at 52 Adelaide Street, Fremantle, on the former Spotlight site.
The panel of five member which included Councillors Rachel Pemberton and Andrew Sullivan rejected the proposal by 4-1. Surprisingly only Councillor Sullivan believed the project should be approved and that is very disappointing.
The Yolk group can now apply for a ruling of the State Administrative Tribunal, so we’ll know the outcome of that in a few months, if they take that road.
For me the eight-storey height in that location was not a big issue although I believe it should be capped at seven storey along Adelaide Street, but the proposed building was ugly and mediocre and not at all sympathetic to the unique Freo character.
