Fun new lifestyle hoardings have gone up around the Fremantle Civic Centre development at Kings Square and they even included my old ugly mug, so that is very special.

BUILDING BONANZA FOR FREMANTLE

 

It looks like 2020 could be a huge building bonanza for Fremantle with the probable start of three major developments close to each other in the city centre,

New hotel plans by Silverleaf Investments for the Woolstores shopping centre will go to public consultation soon, and I hear the SKS group is getting serious about the Hilton Double Tree development on the Point Street car park site, while the Yolk Property Group has indicated they will also start soon on the Little Lane residential development at the former Spotlight site next to Target.

Sirona Capital will open the new buildings at Kings Square and the FOMO retail and hospitality concept in the first quarter of next year, and the Housing Department will move in above it.  The City of Fremantle’s new Civic Centre is due for completion by the end of 2020.

The refurbishment of the Mannings Building is looking great, but I hear the micro brewery part of it is on hold because Silverleaf Investments have also obtained the Newport Hotel next to it and want to open up the back of it to create a hospitality hub in Paddy Troy Lane, where Benny’s cafe and bar is already creating an alfresco area.

In the West End The Social residential development on the former Fremantle Workers Club site in Henry street is also progressing well.

Still no word when the Match group will start on the residential development at the former Energy Museum site at Parry street, and when Silverleaf Investments will begin with the development of the former Police and Justice complex in Henderson Street.

Hopefully the Minderoo Trust and Forest Family Foundation will develop the sites they bought in Fremantle soon as well

I find it inspiring to witness Fremantle’s transformation toward a city of a mix of stunning heritage buildings and many new modern buildings. It’s the facelift Freo had to have.

I am certain there are great times ahead for Fremantle.

START OF KINGS SQUARE’S GRASSY SLOPE

 

Civic Centre

 

I assume that the angle of the steel beams is the start of the grassy slope Civic Room of the new City of Fremantle Civic Centre at Kings Square.

I love seeing the new community and library building take shape more and more.

It is exciting to see the new Fremantle Civic Centre at Kings Square taking shape.

Steel beams now show the pointy end of the building-the bow of the civic ship- near Queen Street, where a cafe is planned to open at ground level.
