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.

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.

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.

FREO NEW CIVIC CENTRE UPDATE

 

 

Another milestone at the Fremantle Kings Square Redevelopment project with the basement concrete floor of the library of the new Civic Centre being poured today and the scaffolding coming down on the core that has reached its height.

One can also get a nice few of the pointed roofs of the kiosks of the FOMO retail and hospitality concept by Sirona Capital.

GOOD LOOKING FREO KINGS SQUARE

 

 

The three viewing windows are now all accessible to the public to look at the building progress of the new Fremantle Civic Centre and the final touches of the Sirona Capital buildings behind it.

The Kings Square Redevelopment Project is modernising the inner city, so I can’t wait for its completion with a new children’s playground added as well.

It was such a nice clear sky on Friday afternoon that I had to take these photos. Click on them to enlarge!

VIEWING WINDOWS AT CIVIC CENTRE CONSTRUCTION

 

KS 3

 

Nice to see that Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt was true to his word and followed up on my request to install viewing windows for the public at the new Civic Centre construction at Kings Square.

Three windows have been put in the fence, but currently only one can be accessed as the other two are fenced off as part of the paving project that is under way.

The Fremantle Kings Square Redevelopment Project is going very well with the Sirona Capital buildings nearing completion, the Henderson Street car park has a new shade structure on the roof, and the new Civic Centre construction is also on track.
