Where would you put a government office in Fremantle?

I’d be interested to know what you think the best site for a State Government office for the Department of Housing is in Fremantle? It is very exciting that a new government office will be moving from Perth to Fremantle but now the challenge will be finding the best place to build a new office building for around 1000 workers (15-20,000m2) in central Fremantle in time for them to move in a few years.
The old Fremantle Woolstores is appealing on one level as it would see that heritage building restored with a lot of the original fabric – like the amazing jarrah floorboards – remain and be made visible.. On the other hand having it right in the centre of Fremantle around Kings Square also makes a lot of sense in terms of getting these new office workers activating and enjoying the heart of Fremantle.
Great to have choices on such an important announcement for Freo.
