TRADERS UPDATED ABOUT KINGS SQUARE PROCESS

 

Kings Square

 

Only a handful of local traders turned up yesterday for an update about the building progress of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project.

These updates at the Federal Hotel have been regular events to keep affected traders in the loop.

Those who came heard form builders Pindan and Probuild, Sirona Capital and City of Fremantle Director Infrastructure and Project Delivery Graham Tattersall that things are going very well and to schedule.

Completion of our Civic Centre community facility will be in July 2020, so a construction period of 18 months. Excavation will start in two weeks for the lower level and the main structure will be up before Christmas this year, so that will give us all a much better idea of what we can expect and how it works in the space.

Sirona is on the home straight with their two buildings and they are estimated to be completed by August/September this year. The paving of Newman Court on the Sirona side will be done in September and the Civic Centre half toward completion of that building.

Queen Street should be back to normal in July when the hoarding there comes down, so that will make traffic flow a bit easier.

The Newman Court thoroughfare between William Street and Queen Street will be open before Christmas, so that is good news as well. Scaffolding around the carpark will be removed in July.

CIVIC CENTRE CONSTRUCTION TO BE OPENED FOR VIEWING

I shot the reflection of the Fremantle Townhall in the windows of the former Myer building that is being redeveloped by Sirona Capital as part of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project.

Pindan builders have also started on the new Civic Centre, but they have built dark fences around the site so that no one can look in.

I asked Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt and CEO Phil St John to put some viewing windows in, and when I bumped into Director Graham Tattersall he assured me this morning that viewing windows will be installed once the signage and branding have been put on the fences, so that they know where the appropriate locations for the windows are.

Members of the Freo community who, like I, want to watch the progress of the construction of the new City of Fremantle Civic Centre can do so for the time being from the first floor of the Fremantle Mall at William Street of course. It’s a healthy exercise to walk up those steps daily. 😍
