Good to see activity on the  Beach Street site next to the Australia Hotel. From memory, and please correct me if I am wrong, an eight-storey residential building was approved for the site by Fremantle council, so hopefully that is what is happening.

AUSTRALIA HOTEL IN FULL GLORY

Australia Hotel

 

Nice to see the Fremantle Hotel Australia backpackers all painted again after it took years of dispute with the heritage department on what the right process was for the street level facade.

It’s looking good and is a much nicer sight now for cruiseship passengers when they arrive in Fremantle Port.

A LOT OF DEVELOPMENT IN FREMANTLE

Posted in development, fremantle by freoview on May 27, 2015

Whilst we are all waiting on and whinging about the delayed Kings Square development, elsewhere in Fremantle things are happening and that is great to see.

Fantastic to read in the West Australian today that the Heirloom by Match residential development of the former Dalgety Woolstores site will start this week. The $ 130 million development of the 90-year-old building will see 183 new apartments housing approximately 250 new residents. It will be completed by 2017.

Match will also do a mixed-use development of the Energy Museum site just down the road. A few metres from there a residential and commercial ground level building at Queen Victoria/Quarry streets is getting there fast, and around the corner the former International Backpackers is being transformed into the Australia Hotel.

Talking about hotels, the Hilton Doubletree at Point Street should start in due course and the short-stay Quest Hotel at Pakenham Street had a start but appears now stagnant.

More development will happen on the Woolstores shopping centre site, the Synagogue building next to Fremantle Oval, the Atwell Arcade development is well under way, and the Pakenham/Bannister Street carpark residential building will be built soon as well.

Far out West the new Mediterranean Shipping Company building is nearing completion around September, so there is a lot going on in our city, and these are very positive signs for the revitalisation of the inner city..
