My blog post yesterday that the sale of the former Fremantle Energy Museum building means the end of the M/27 residential development by the MATCH Groups was not correct, so I copy their media release below for your info:

The completed restoration works by M/Group of the original S.E.C Building and former Western Power’s Energy Museum at the Fremantle Substation site in Parry Street, is another example of how M/Group has worked effectively with the City of Fremantle and State Heritage Council to support the integration of valuable heritage fabric into contemporary urban living.

The property, which sits adjacent to a boutique Match apartment development that overlooks parkland at its rear, has been released for sale under an Expression of Interest (EOI) campaign; opening the door for a range of potential uses.

Mr Lloyd Clark, Managing Director of M/Group, said the apartments on this site are already 35% sold, and the renewed heritage building will be on a separate green title. He said the opportunity to build a business on this site comes with inherent character and is surrounded by an established and new residential community.

“The planned apartment building, M/27 by Match, will be home to 40 boutique apartments and is due to commence construction in late 2018,” he said.

“The opportunity to take ownership of the building certainly opens the door for a ‘Bread in Common’ type food and beverage venue, although could as easily be adapted for boutique office space. The purpose of our work on this site is to, perhaps ironically, create new energy. It is a great opportunity for a potential proprietor in a great location.”

Match, which is part of M/Group, is the company behind the highly celebrated Heirloom by Match heritage renewal and is currently in the construction phase of the M/28 by Match boutique apartments in South Terrace.

The company prides itself on introducing design-focused apartment product that enhances the streetscape and activates living space in strategic locations.

The heritage works on the heritage building, undertaken by M/Group’s building division M/Construction, have included the restoration of existing brickwork, refurbishment of metal window frames and the restoration of existing large timber sliding doors.

The sale of the building is being managed by Knight Frank and more information can be obtained by contacting James Baker on 0418 912 007.

For more information on the limited number of parkside M/27 by Match apartments, visit m27apartments.com or contact 0432 660 066.
