THE BOW OF FREO’S NEW CIVIC SHIP

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.

A few new photos of the Fremantle Civic Centre and Kings Square Redevelopment project.

The ‘aerial’ photo was taken from the 7th floor of Arundel Court, which is opposite Fremantle Hospital. I’ll need knee replacements after taking that photo as the old building does not have a lift.

PICTURES OF A CHANGING PORT CITY

Three more big concrete cores have been poured for the new Fremantle Civic Centre, and  amazing how much bigger Kings Square looks now that the large raised planter boxes and the Moreton Bay fig trees have been removed.

Just around the corner in Paddy Troy lane the Manning development by Silverleaf Investments is really starting to take shape.

Freo is on the move and let’s all hope and wish that it will revitalise our city very soon.

If you go and have a look at the changes at Fremantle’s Kings Square also go and try out the great coffee and food at the Little Italian PARLAPA cafe in William Street, straight opposite the Townhall.

PARKING TILL 9PM. WTF FREMANTLE?!

 

Destination marketing, redevelopment, placemaking, and all that stuff are not going to help Fremantle much when one of our major inner city car parks closes at 9pm.

That is happening at the Sirona Capital owned Queensgate carpark in Henderson Street, that used to be open till midnight, but is now only open from 6am to 9pm.

That is ridiculous! It should be open till midnight at least Friday-Sunday.

The irony about it is that the Kings Square Redevelopment project, of which the car park is a part, is supposed to turn Freo’s ailing economy around. Yep, but only if it is before 9pm.

THE OLD AND NEW OF FREMANTLE

 

Old and New

 

I got this interesting perspective from Fremantle Oval that shows part of the Kings Square redevelopment and the Townhall.

The crane is for the new Civic Centre building that is progressing well.

FREO’S FANTASTIC FACELIFT

 

Facelift 1

 

It is really exciting for me that there is so much going on in Fremantle and that good old Freo is getting a well-deserved facelift all over town.

At Kailis in the Fishing Boat Harbour work has started on the new 80s cafe that will feature more affordable fish such as herring and mullet and will have a raw fish section. I love sashimi so I’d better win Lotto so that I can become a regular at the raw fish bar.

In gorgeous High Street another heritage facade is being restored while at ground level the Breaks cafe is being renovated.

And at Kings Square the raised tree beds are being removed so that the new pavement can be put down.

Fremantle’s rejuvenation has been a long time coming but I hope and believe that brilliant times are the future of our beautiful city.

ROTTNEST ISLAND AUTHORITY FOR NEW FREO CIVIC CENTRE?

 

Quokkas for Kings Square?

I heard the exciting, but yet unconfirmed, rumour that the City of Fremantle might have a coup with the possibility of the Rottnest Island Authority setting up office on the third floor of the new Civic Centre that is under construction at Kings Square.

The RIA is in a way a local government, so it would make sense to have representation in the new Freo Civic Centre at Kings Square that will open late next year.
