Six Thousand on MYRE

As you have no doubt heard MYRE is looking quite awesome. I was especially happy with this hip blog calling the City of Fremantle a “trendsetting council”

MYRE Project Grand Opening

The dream of building the ultimate bespoke pop up shop is now here. Fremantle’s old Myer building in King’s Square has been in the hands of a bunch of ambitious creatives and well-organised architects for the past few months now. After months of sweat and labour the doors will finally open to the rebranded The MYRE Project. The huge collaboration between space fillers Spacemarket and trendsetting council City of Fremantle will see the 4000sqm ground floor set a retail case study of how to not just make a stand alone pop up store but a pop up mall.

The retail floor will allow you to get your hands on some quality goods from some emerging locals. You are covered from pretty much every angle; a tonne of apparel wears will be on sale including threads from Amicus CollectiveCommon Ground and Six Thread. If you’re in the mood for a bit of art shopping then Feast Your Eyes and Buratti Editionscan help you out, whilst Rock, Paper, Scissors and Peaches & Clean take care of all your beauty needs. Most people’s personal favourite will most certainly become one of the awesome food retailers including; Kate & Abel who will be serving up your caffeinated brews and Sue Lewis Chocolatier serving up science based cocoa bean goodness including the offbeat blue cheese truffle that will truly satisfy.

Retail is still only the starting point for the 5 storey ex-department store. The 22,000sqm space is being divided up floor by floor with the basement set aside for artist studios. The first floor is a production area and is currently churning out some authentic handmade furniture, whilst the rooftop is being transformed into a huge hybrid of a bar, garden and the casual helipad that is set up for VIP shoppers – not even kidding.
The future is bright for the MYRE project, which will be around till August 2014 – at the very least. If you are short of an easel, wood saw or a helicopter then don’t fret you can still head down this week for the opening week and grab yourself a coffee and stroll the one of a kind creative goods plaza.
