ANOTHER STEP FOR THE KINGS SQUARE REDEVELOPMENT

 

 

Riggers are dismantling the building crane this Saturday that assisted in building the new home for the FOMO retail concept and commercial office spaces by Sirona Capital.

Contractors for PROBUILD were high up in the sky lowering the large crane to the ground in sections.

More large glass windows have been installed on the former Myer building at Kings Square that is being developed by Sirona Capital as part of the Kings Square Redevelopment Project. We are slowly getting an idea what it will look like.

PROBUILD is hard at work to finish the buildings on time for the opening around Christmas this year.

MORE HEIGHT IS LESS BULK AT KINGS SQUARE

It is interesting to see how the top level addition to the former MYER building at Kings Square makes the building look less bulky.

Probuild are hard at work for Sirona Capital to finish the Kings Square Redevelopment Project by the end of this year.

The new City of Fremantle Civic Centre building should also start soon and be completed by mid next year.

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.

I check out the development progress at Fremantle’s Kings Square daily and took this photo on Sunday morning.

PROBUILD is well on the way with the building of the new Queensgate building and the redevelopment of the former MYER building for Sirona Capital.

FREO’S KINGS SQUARE REACHING FOR THE SKY

 

KS 1

 

Columns on the second floor of the Kings Square building, that replaces the Queensgate building, are going up along William Street, while more support columns are added on the top fourth floor of the former Myer building at Queens Street to add more storeys.

A second large concrete pump will be installed by Probuild the next few days to speed up the work, while the interior demolition of the civic centre is also well under way.

The Kings Square Redevelopment Project will be a game changer for Fremantle and is due for completion toward the end of next year.

HIVE OF ACTIVITY AT KINGS SQUARE

 

Kings Square

 

It is a hive of activity at Fremantle’s Kings Square with PROBUILD, the contractors for Sirona Capital, keen to make inroads fast on the new building for the FOMO retail concept.

Workers told me they would be there till 7pm last night to put more of the pre-fabricated beams and columns up and that they would be on site today and on Sunday as well.

Go and check it out when you are in town and have a coffee and meal at Parlapa, just opposite the Townhall in William Street!

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.

TWO MORE FIG TREES REMOVED FROM KINGS SQUARE

 

Kings Square

 

The City of Fremantle will remove two more ailing Moreton Bay fig trees from Kings Square and replace them with other mature trees.

After community consultation 73% of ¬†participants were for the removal of the so called Christmas tree and 69% for the removal of tree No.5 just east of St John’s church.

It makes sense to me not to wait for limbs to break off and take a public safety risk, especially with the Christmas tree that is adjacent to the planned new children’s playground.

Tree No.5 will immediately be replaced with a mature London plane tree to create a nice line of those trees north of the Townhall and civic centre, while City staff will be sourcing, purchasing and preparing a mature Moreton Bay fig tree to replace the Christmas tree.

Interesting to see today all the construction workers at Kings Square on a Sunday. Probuild clearly wants to keep on schedule and get the job done. The sooner the better, as far as I am concerned.
