NOT A MATCH FOR FREMANTLE

Match

 

It appears that the MATCH Group have quietly postponed or abandoned their plans to develop the former Energy Museum site in Fremantle’s Parry Street.

All the signs to promote the mixed development of residential and commercial accommodation have been removed from the building’s facade.

Plans were for a four-storey residential new building behind the old one and the former museum transferred into a Bread in Common style restaurant and bar and other retail on street level.

While the delay is disappointing it is also understandable as there is a lot of apartment development happening in Fremantle and the Heirloom by Match building still has apartments for sale.

Real estate experts say their is a glut of apartments in the Perth metro area and an oversupply of them, so developers will probably have a bit of a wait and see attitude to see where the market is heading before realising plans that already have been approved.
