Freo's View


Posted in architecture, building, city of fremantle, development by freoview on November 7, 2016


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.

    Not a surprising vote by Cr. Sullivan.
    Great to see Cr. Pemberton, who also attended the Notre Dame meeting, re their new massive development cnr High & Cliff, voted against this next huge mundanity supreme in Adelaide street.
