Freo's View


Posted in city of fremantle, development, notre dame university by freoview on March 2, 2017


If as I expect the WA Joint Development Assessment Panel next Thursday rejects the application by Notre Dame University for a five-storey development at 3 High Street, the university will have to look at alternative solutions.

The School of Nursing requires a lot of floor space, so a lower three-storey building in the West End won’t be big enough for UNDA I presume.

I found the perfect location for the new Notre Dame building on the corner of Suffolk Street and South Terrace, opposite Fremantle Hospital.

It is a leisurely ten-minute walk from the rest of the UNDA campus, close to public transport and parking and just a ten-minute walk to the railway station.

The vacant site is outside the West End conservation area, so height won’t be an issue and neither would be street level activation.

The City of Fremantle is planning a new carpark at the Stan Reilley site, so no worries about parking either, and Queensgate and Collie Street parking is nearby as well.

    One of the follies from the WW1 was having the Officers Mess too far back from the trenches. The Colonel Blimps got too fat and were accustomed to ask as they congregated in the bar “how many of the stuff bought it today, old chap?
    Well spotted site.
