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.
A funky new cafe and clothes shop has opened at Elder Place opposite the Fremantle railway station. The Calypso Warehouse looks inviting, cosy and cute, so check it out when you are down that way.
They sell women and men clothing, coffee and other things.
It is on the corner of the Wilson carpark and next to CODA architects.
Sadly further in town at the Piazza the Red Cherries coffee bar has closed but they now operate the cafe in the Fremantle Markets food yard section on weekends.
There is a big fundraising RECYCLED FASHION SALE on this weekend November 7 and 8 to help rais funds to get an urgently needed shipment of clothing to the people of Monkey Bay in Malawi.
