These two stunning buildings in Fremantle’s historic High Street are for lease. The one on the right is all vacant while the one on the left has the Breaks cafe at street level, but amazing available spaces upstairs.

Any takers?

HIGH STREET CLOSURE UPDATE

Posted in city of fremantle, hospitality, parking, retail, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on June 24, 2020

 

Here the latest update from Pipes for Fremantle about road closures in the West End:

Due to forecasted wet weather conditions, construction work on High Street between Henry Street and the Roundhouse is now scheduled to start on Thursday 25 June, and the full length of High Street will now be closed to traffic from Thursday 25 June to Saturday 4 July.

The full length of High Street is still on schedule to be completed the week of 27 July.

This work will result in the following updated impacts:

Full High Street closure:

At this stage, the whole length of High Street will be closed to traffic between Thursday 25 June and Saturday 4 July. Please note that these dates are dependent on weather and we will endeavour to complete this work before 4 July. We will update you if these dates change.

Construction fencing will come down along High Street between Market Street and Henry Street on Friday 26 June and event fencing will be in place until Saturday 4 July to allow for reinstatement work. Footpaths will be fully accessible and most machinery will be removed from this area from Friday 26 June.
Intersection and partial road closures:

High Street at the intersections of Pakenham, Market and Mouat Street will have closures this week.

Pakenham Street between Leake and Bannister Streets will continue to be restricted to local traffic and deliveries only.

These closures will also be in place during the week of 29 June. However, the exact dates for each of these closures will be dependent on weather.

ROADWORKS IN FREMANTLE’S WEST END

Posted in city of fremantle, traders, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on June 5, 2020

 

I received some updates from the Pipes for Fremantle project by the Water Corporation, which is happening all over the Fremantle CBD.

At the moment they are replacing the pipes between Market Street and Henry Street along High Street. From there they will be doing Henry Street to Little High Street and the details will be announced before July 17.

Work in Essex Street will be done between late July and late August.

In Leake and Cantonment streets they will be working from mid August to late September.

They will then be in Nairn Street from early to late September, and in Norfolk Street from early October till early November.

There are some traffic delays and road closures in Market Street, High Street and Pakenham Street currently, so best to avoid the area and drive through Cliff Street.

The water corporation and gas people are in Fremantle’s West End and have dug a deep trench for new pipes along High Street.

It is very strange that the Pipes for Fremantle people no longer send media releases to this blog because it would be nice if I could inform the public and businesses about disruptions, as I did last year when PFF used to send me information.

Social

 

I noticed when walking past that there are still a few apartments for sale at the SOCIAL in Henry Street.

Living in Fremantle’s historic West End must be very special, so if you are in the market check it out!

The STREETS OF FREMANTLE Facebook page posted this hand-coloured photo of High Street, looking west toward the Roundhouse, so I need to share it with you all, because it is such a gorgeous and vibrant image and I love historic photos of our beautiful city.

We rarely see that many people in High Street anymore unfortunately.

NEW HOME FOR CHART&MAP SHOP

The Fremantle Chart&Map Shop, that was evicted from its Collie Street premises, allegedly because of outstanding rent, has found a new home at 70 High Street in Freo’s historic West End.

The new shop will be between Bodkins Bootery and Hush cafe, so a prominent location.

Tradies were working in the shop this morning to put a new floor in, so it will be a few weeks until the shop opens.

Life goes on, and must go on, so a photo of the very nice balcony shutters at the brand-new The Social apartments in Freo’s Henry Street, where the Workers Club used to be.

In these challenging times it is nice to get a break, so great news that the BREAKS cafe in High Street in Fremantle’s West End has re-opened after extensive interior and exterior renovations of the building.

BREAKS looks great with new lights, a beautiful mezzanine area at the back, and it would make a fantastic small bar as well, so who knows what the future might bring.

PICK UP THE RUBBISH, FREO CITY!

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, rubbish, Uncategorized by freoview on December 9, 2019

 

Rubbish

 

I have no issue that this piece of pallet was presumably left behind after the fantastic Fremantle Long Dinner. Bumping out in the dark after a big night one can forget something, but I do have an issue with that for the last ten days City of Fremantle parking inspectors, rangers, street cleaners and rubbish collectors must have walked or driven by this many times a day, and no one cared to take responsibility and get the rubbish picked up.

It is in our historic West End that is frequented by many visitors, so someone just do your bloody job and get rid off it, PLEASE!
