THE NEW FACE OF KINGS SQUARE

 

KS

 

We are getting more and more an idea what the buildings at Fremantle’s Kings Square will look like, with these steel structures now being added to the facade of the former Myer building.

Probuild are working hard for developers Sirona Capital to finish the project on time so that the FOMO retail precinct can open late next year.

FANTASTIC CREATIVE FUN AT FOMO COLOUR

 

 

What a fantastic fun FOMO Colour event at Fremantle Oval today!

More than 600 creative people, young and old, came to altogether create one of the biggest canvasses ever painted in WA, if one put all the images together.

The event was organised by the Kings Square Redevelopment Project partners Sirona Capital.

The event was booked out very fast and they had a waiting list of 600 people, which they had to close.

FOMO, by the way, stands for Fremantle On My Own and is the motto for the new retail concept at Kings Square, which will open late next year.

GLAZING AT FREO’S KINGS SQUARE PROJECT

Nice to see the glazing on the first floor of the building that replaces Queensgate at Fremantle’s Kings Square, a project by Sirona Capital.

Sirona is also refurbishing the former Myer building and glazing is already substantial there. It gives a bit of an impression of what the buildings will look like when finished at the end of next year.

Also interesting to see for the first time the southern wall of the Townhall, now that the civic centre has been demolished.

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.

UP UP AND AWAY TO FREO’S FUTURE

The erection of a second large building crane started this morning at Fremantle’s Kings Square.

Builders PROBUILD have taken a section out of the former Myer building to create a courtyard to accommodate the crane.

Walking along William Street one can now also see real progress on the new building that replaces the Queensgate building, with large concrete pillars sticking up into the sky.

Sirona Capital has also started promoting the FOMO retail concept and offering spaces for lease.

There are a lot of positive things happening in Fremantle, so let’s feel like Team Freo and be supportive of our beautiful city.

FUNDING FOR FREMANTLE KINGS SQUARE PROJECT

 

First State Super, Sirona Capital and Altis Property Partners announced they have signed a $190m funding package agreement, comprising construction and term debt, for the Kings Square Fremantle redevelopment.

Kings Square Fremantle is underwritten by a 15-year lease to the WA State Government for 20,000sqm over five levels and across two buildings to accommodate some functions of the Department of Communities, mainly Housing.

The project also includes the introduction of FOMO (Fremantle on My Own), a new urban retail, food and dining destination in a concept which is authentically Fremantle, and the full refurbishment of the 830 bay multi-deck Queensgate car park.

Sirona Capital managing director Matthew McNeilly said he was excited to have First State Super on board as a funding partner for the transformational Kings Square Fremantle project. “What sets this project apart from others is that we have actively sought to conceptualise, plan and deliver it in ways that reset traditional thinking for projects of this type, size and scale,”

The  former MYER building at Fremantle’s Kings Square is a mere skeleton now that the part demolition is at an advanced stage with large sections of the Queen Street facade now also removed.
