The latest photos of the Fremantle Kings Square demolition, which is stage one of the redevelopment of our inner city square and hopefully the start of the economic recovery of our city.

If all goes to plan the new buildings and City of Fremantle Civic Centre will open late next year, with Department of Housing staff estimated to move in early 2020 while the FOMO retail concept by Sirona Capital should be up and running in time for Christmas 2019.

It will be a fascinating battle between FOMO and all the shopping centre and Perth’ Forrest Place all trying to get new ideas going that will ¬†change the centres into old town squares and trying to become the heart of the community.

FOMO sounds exciting and Fremantle is a lot more attractive than shopping centres so I’ll back Freo any time.

The City of Fremantle has released images of what the new library in the new civic centre at the Townhall will look like.

If al goes to plan the civic centre will open late next year when the entire Kings Square Project should be completed.

The Kerry Hill architects design will bring some class to Freo’s city centre.

FREO KINGS SQUARE DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

 

Myer

 

The ¬†former MYER building at Fremantle’s Kings Square is a mere skeleton now that the part demolition is at an advanced stage with large sections of the Queen Street facade now also removed.

It is amazing how fast the demolition work at Fremantle’s Kings Square is progressing. The former Myer building is looking like a skeleton with large sections between the concrete pillars removed.

The former Queensgate cinema building is one heap of rubble with the demolition crew now peeling back the William Street facade.

I find it fascinating to see how deliberate the demolition work is done. It’s not a big wrecking ball slamming in, but carefully removing sections. The machine was rubbing off the brickwork at the Myer building quite gently.

I took these photos late afternoon on Wednesday.
