Manning building.

 

The scaffolding on a beautiful High Street heritage building is coming down revealing the stunning restored facade.

The building which is next to the former RSL club has the Breaks cafe at ground level and new residential living above it. It was designed by retired building designer Tom Mascaro who did a favour for his mate the property owner who lives in Italy.

The back of the Manning building in Paddy Troy Lane is also showing what is will look like in a few months, when it will open as a tavern, micro brewery and distillery.

NEW LOOK AT FREO’S MARKET STREET

Market Street

 

The new veranda and posts at the Manning building, that is being redeveloped by Silverleaf Investments, allow for a new look at Market Street.

I took the photo early on Friday morning, before the bad weather came in.

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 veranda posts of the Manning building along Market Street are being put in and looking very good, while workers are now removing the paint on the facade in the High Street mall and William Street.

In Paddy Troy lane one really becomes aware of how significant this development is, so go and have a look!

This is an important development of the historic building by Fremantle based Silverleaf Investments which are one of the major players in our city.

CORRUGATED AWNING NOT GREAT FOR MANNING BUILDING

I have mentioned the development of the Manning building in the centre of Fremantle previously and believe it is a positive step for our city.

The renovated facade along Market Street has been revealed now that the scaffolding has come down and it looks great, but I wonder if the corrugated awning is really the best Silverleaf Investments can do.

The veranda at William Street will be reinstated and be financed from the percentage for the arts money Silverleaf have to invest, so a shame that a more appropriate solution was not used for Market Street.

At the back in Paddy Troy lane the big tavern, brewery and distillery development is starting to look very impressive.

BEAUTIFUL MANNING FACADE IS BACK

Nice to see the facade of the historic Fremantle Manning building at Market Street being stripped off the paint and back to its former beauty.

I hear that owners Silverleaf Investments will paint the top ornaments to a colour that will better match the facade.

At the back of the building in Paddy Troy Lane a major development is happening to create a tavern, brewery and distillery.

The development of the heritage Manning building in Fremantle by Silverleaf Investments is substantial and will create a new attraction in the CBD.

A new tavern, micro brewery, retail outlets, distillery and offices will be created at the building that runs the entire length of the High Street mall.

I took the photos above on Sunday.

MANNING REDEVELOPMENT ON TRACK

Work on the Manning Building redevelopment in the Fremantle inner city is progressing well with two large metal frames installed at the back of it in Paddy Troy Lane.

The Silverleaf Investments development will see a new tavern, micro brewery and distillery being added to the heritage building and hopefully help with the Fremantle Council’s efforts of  revitalising the CBD.

FREO CBD DEVELOPMENTS PROGRESS

 

 

I had a look at the progress of two major Fremantle inner city developments at Kings Square and the Manning building and it was reassuring to see that things are going well and fast.

Contractors for Silverleaf Investment are working hard on creating the new tavern and micro brewery at the back of the Manning building, so that will be an exciting new addition to the Freo hospitality industry.

Here a few photos to see where they are at.

MANNING BUILDING AWNING WORK STARTS

Work has started today on the awning along the Manning building in Fremantle’s Market Street to allow safe passage to pedestrians, while at the back in Paddy Troy Lane the part demolition of the additions of the building is still going on to make way for a tavern and micro brewery.

It is all part of the Silverleaf Investments development of the site.
