LAPA PARKLET NO MORE

Lapa

 

Interesting to note that the Brazilian carnivore paradise LAPA in Fremantle’s High Street got rid of their alfresco parklet.

I wonder if they have to make way for more police car parking or if the alfresco was not worth the money because it was rarely used by patrons.

And talking about parking, several parking bays in front of the Esplanade Hotel on Marine Terrace have disappeared to make way for a taxi rank, that used to be in Collie Street.

Great fresh produce, breads, pastries, eggs, organic food, breakfast, lunch, coffees.
Farmer Damian‘s animal touch farm will be there and live music and face painting.

WOOLSTORES DEVELOPMENT TO START LATE NEXT YEAR

Word on the Fremantle Woolstores shopping centre grapevine is that the development of the Adina Hotel by Silverleaf Investments will start around September next year, because Coles is going to spend about $ 6 million on relocating the supermarket further east within the centre, presumably to make way for the hotel lobby.

Just around the corner the Point Street carpark is also still operating, although the SKS Group had asked the City of Fremantle to return the property to them, so that they could start on the basement of the mix-use development, that will also house the Hilton Doubletree hotel.

But we are seeing a lot of development in Fremantle, and more planned, so our city is moving forward.

Hougoumont 2

Hougoumont 1

The Planning Committee of Fremantle Council unanimously approved on Wednesday the temporary erection of two sea containers on the Hougoumont Hotel in Bannister Street, which will create a sky restaurant and bar.

The restaurant will have 98 seats, of which 24 will be alfresco.

The roof top addition is for only five years until the Hougoumont starts on Stage Two of the development with additional rooms.

A BIG FREMANTLE SUNDAY. ENJOY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, concert, food, markets, music, Uncategorized by freoview on November 4, 2018

 

 

There is a lot on this Sunday, so take advantage of the good weather and connect with our Freo community.

There is a big Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road from 8-12 with additional art&craft and other stalls to the usual fresh and organic produce, breads, pastries, coffee, breakfast, etc. There is of course live music, face painting and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm.

From 10-12 the Repair Cafe is on again at Stackwood, corner Stack and Wood streets in White Gum Valley, so if you’ve got anything that needs repair that is the place to go to.

 

Harbour Classic

From 1pm the Harbour Classic will be sailed in Fremantle Port, so that should be a great spectacle to enjoy.

 

Felicity Groom

And last but not least, pop powerhouse Felicity Groom and her three-piece band will be performing at the free music courtyard session in the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 pm.

HOUGOUMONT WANT ROOF TOP BAR ADDITION

Posted in accommodation, bar, city of fremantle, development, heritage, hospitality, hotel, Uncategorized by freoview on November 3, 2018

 

The owners of the Hougoumont Hotel in Bannister Street are seeking temporary approval  for two storey additions to the hotel, to be used for food and beverage facilities for the Hotel onsite.

The proposal involves the installation of two sea containers and recladding to create a ‘pop up’ restaurant/bar on the subject site.

Hours of operation are to be consistent with the existing Hotel Accommodation which are Monday – Saturday 6am – 12am and Sunday – 10am – 12 am.

The dining area has been designed to cater for a maximum of 98 seats (74 internal and 24 external) persons; 15-18 full time staff members will operate from the entire premises at any one time (including accommodation, food and beverage components of business);

No live music is to be performed, with only background music to be played.

The business is envisaged to operate for a period of 5 years until the second stage of the Hougoumont Hotel development is to be carried out .

Opinion: I am not at all certain that two sea containers on top are a very good look in the West End heritage area, and while the proposal is for a temporary five-year use only, there is no guarantee that the applicants won’t apply to make it permanent after that.

The Planning Committee of Fremantle Council will debate the matter on Wednesday.

THE MANTLE CHANGE TO TAVERN

Posted in city of fremantle, development, hospitality, local government, tavern, Uncategorized by freoview on November 3, 2018

The popular THE MANTLE food market on the corner of James and Beach streets has applied to the City of Fremantle for a partial change of the venue to tavern, micro brewery and distillery.

The licensed area would only be for 120 patrons and opening times are Tuesday-Thursday 7am to 9m and Friday to Sunday from 7am to 11pm.

Next door to The Mantle The Sunshine will open soon with a food and fresh produce market, so the two combined should become a real attraction in the far east of the Fremantle CBD.  There is ample parking along Beach Street and good access to public transport as well.

The officers have recommended that the application for a tavern will be approved. The item is on Wednesday’s Fremantle Council’s Planning Committee agenda.
