The development of a tavern and whisky bar at the former Synagogue next to Fremantle Oval is well under way as the photo I took this morning shows.

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.

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.

RUNNING WITH THIEVES FOR SOUTH FREMANTLE

Posted in brewery, city of fremantle, development, hospitality, tavern, Uncategorized by freoview on June 6, 2019

 

The City of Fremantle Planning Committee last night unanimously approved the long overdue development of the vacant Sealanes buildings between South Terrace and Marine Terrace in South Fremantle.

The 300 patron venue is proposed to operate as a high quality ‘gastro tavern’ incorporating a working boutique micro-brewery and micro-distillery offering patrons a mix of high quality beverage and dining and ‘cellar door’ in a casual, friendly atmosphere. It will be operated by Running With Thieves.

Alterations to the Marine Terrace and South Terrace frontages, including the provision of new doors, metal balustrades, alfresco bench seating, and new shop front windows will allow views across to South Beach.

LOVING THE FREO VIEW CORRIDORS

port views

 

I love the view corridors to Fremantlte Port through the streets where parts of the port are framed by the beautiful heritage buildings, such as here in Pakenham Street.

If more people made themselves tourists in our own twon there would be a higher appreciation for how special Freo is and that we should feel blessed to love here. I certainly do!

By the way, the building site front left is of the new Fremantle Republic tavern, gin distillery and micro brewery, so more excitement coming to the West End of town soon. Taking the facade back to its original tuckpointing has improved it a lot already.

FREO SYNAGOGUE TAVERN ON THE WAY

synagogue tavern

 

It is often frustrating how long it takes for an approved development to start in Fremantle, so it is good to see that work has commenced at the tavern development of the former Synagogue on the corner of Parry Street and South Terrace.

MELVILLE WAVE PARK REJECTION SIMILAR TO FREO’S J SHED TAVERN

 

The rejection by the State Government of the proposed wave park in the City of Melville is a huge win for the community there and has a lot in common with the State’s rejection of the planned tavern at J Shed on Fremantle’s Bathers Beach.

It is quite intriguing to notice that both local councils approved the controversial plans against huge community opposition and outrage and that even the community votes at special electors meetings were ignored.

One has to wonder also about the proposed location of a wave park in Melville that is just a 20-minute drive to Fremantle beaches. From memory there has even been an application for a small wave park near Port Beach, which makes even less sense.

It is nice to notice that the planning approval process, that is often criticised, worked well in both instances and that inappropriate uses of crown land were rejected by the State.

FREO.SOCIAL GREAT NEW FREO VENUE

FREO.SOCIAL, Fremantle’s latest music venue, micro brewery, distillery and tavern opened its doors at Parry Street to the public today, so make sure to go and check it out!

Millions of dollars were spent on renovating the 1896 built former Artillery Drill Hall, which is owned by the National Trust and was home to the Fly by Night musicians club before.

I did not get a look at the Entertainment Hall, where live music concerts will be held, so make sure to keep up to date who is playing when on the Freo.Social Facebook page.

FREMANTLE APPROVES SYNAGOGUE TAVERN

 

The Old Synagogue

 

The Planning Committee of Fremantle Council last night unanimously approved the application for a tavern at the former Synagogue site on the corner of South Terrace and Parry Street.

There was no discussion about the proposal with Elected Members saying it would be a good development.

The consensus was that the landmark site had been an eyesore for too long, and that the development would integrate well with future plans for Fremantle Oval.

Mayor Brad Pettitt said the tavern was a really good outcome for Fremantle.

Now all the proponents will have to do is apply for a liquor license and wait approximately a year before that gets approved, which really is a far too long process.

The development will create a basement and a rooftop bar, beer gardens, restaurant, and an alfresco area on Parry Street.

TAVERN FOR FREMANTLE SYNAGOGUE

Posted in city of fremantle, development, heritage, hospitality, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on March 4, 2019

 

The Old Synagogue

 

The application for a tavern in the former Synagogue site on the corner of South Terrace and Parry Street will come before the Planning Committee of Fremantle Council this Wednesday.

The application includes a rooftop deck, a mezzanine level, a basement bar under the Synagogue, a multi-level beer garden, an alfresco area out on Parry Street, and a front bar in the shop at South Terrace.

The officer’s recommendation is for conditional approval.

The Synagogue site is in desperate need of activation as it has been vacant for years with a derelict building site at the back facing Fremantle Oval. It would fit in well with the future development of the oval and activation of the precinct.

The only concern is that no tenants have been found yet by the developers to run the hospitality operations, so let’s hope they’ll announce someone soon.
