COTTON ON FOR FREO ATWELL ARCADE
It looks like Cotton On might move into the Atwell Arcade in the Fremantle High Street mall before Christmas, and what a positive difference that would make to the drab shopping street.
While there will always be room for improvement and the redevelopment does have it critics I believe it has been a good compromise. The initial proposal was for a five-storey building which I vehemently opposed on behalf of the Fremantle Society.
The four-storey building is not overpowering in that location and it angles away from High Street, and the panels create welcome softness to the concrete. I personally quite like the way it looks from Cantonment Street.
