SIRONA CAPITAL posted this stunning photo of the Fremantle Henderson Street carpark artwork, which is part of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project, with the text below, so I need to share that of course!

Freo’s New Giant Mural TOGETHER – A Symbol of Community Spirit

A striking new 2,000sqm artwork on the façade of Fremantle’s FOMO building stands as a beacon of hope and solidarity in these uncertain times.

Titled TOGETHER, the work is the brainchild of renown London-born artist Morag Myerscough and spells out the word in enormous colourful letters along the façade of the Kings Square car park on Henderson Street.

Visible from as far away as Monument Hill, the work has a new resonance as the people of Perth and beyond face the challenges of staying connected while maintaining social distancing and remaining at home.

With Morag’s famous work around the world centred on creating a sense of joy and belonging for all those who encounter it, we hope the people of Fremantle and Perth take some comfort in TOGETHER and the knowledge we are not alone in facing this trial.

TOGETHER is Morag Myerscough’s first permanent artwork in Australia.

It’s not all down in good old Freo, as long as we look up now and then. The Henderson Street carpark, which is part of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project, is looking very bright and colourful.

The artwork by British artist Morag Myerscouch is nearly completed.

Look away if you don’t like bright colours!

The artistic painting of the Fremantle Henderson Street carpark by Sirona Capital is now well underway, and I quite like it.

CREATING FREO’S FUTURE

Freo’s View reader Pete commented that he did not like the ‘shark tooth’ images on the Henderson Street carpark, so I hope he will like the more colourful very Freo art that is being put up at present.

Only a few metres away the construction of the tavern and boutique hotel at the Warders Cottages is well under way, and on the other side of the carpark the Walyalup Civic Centre at Kings square is also getting there.

There is so much happening in Freo at the moment as far as development is concerned, that we can all look forward to a brighter future for our gorgeous city.

FREO CARPARK ARTRACTION

The Fremantle Henderson Street carpark facade is getting an arty facelift, which is a good idea, as it is pretty bland currently.

Do the triangles indicate that Kings Square in reality is two triangles and not a square?

The carpark upgrade is part of the Sirona Capital Kings Square Redevelopment Project that is nearing completion, with Department of Communities staff moving in from March 23.

FREMANTLE HERITAGE CAR PARK

car park

 

Fremantle has so many hidden treasures and I ‘discovered’ this car park of the former warehouse at Little High Street this morning.

The entrance is at Phillimore Street and the excellent adaptive re-use of the former warehouse into residential apartments was done by Freo architect Ralph Hoare.

The unit on the corner of High Street, opposite Chalkys cafe, is for sale for just over $ 2 million as I understand it.

BETTER FREMANTLE PARKING SIGNS

parking

 

The modified electronic parking sign at South Terrace near the corner of Parry Street is much better than the previous one, as it is showing many more carparks in the area, and the available car bays.

I assume the other signs around the Fremantle CBD also have been modified, but I will check it out.

EXPLORING FREMANTLE ALWAYS PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES

The weather is just too nice, the sky so blue and the sun so warm that I ignored doctor’s advise and took my knee brace off for a few hours, so that I could have a slow stroll through good old Freo.

Here a few photos I took while doing that.

KINGS SQUARE AHEAD OF SCHEDULE

Another minimalist photo of the work that is going on at the Queensgate carpark in Fremantle’s Henderson Street, as part of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project by Sirona Capital.

The carpark is due to re-open well before the Christmas shopping starts, so only a few months from now.

The replacement for the Queensgate building at Newman Court now has a ground floor roof and first storey floor, and I was told this morning that the builders are ahead of schedule, so that is great.

FREO’S BEAUTY IN THE ORDINARY

As part of the beautification of the vacant Fremantle Point Street development site a piece of a partly demolished wall was painted yellow and black.

I photographed just a part of the wall and that created an artwork of its own.

There is always beauty in the ordinary!
