A view from a new top of Freo

Today I got a new view of Freo from the top of the new Atwell Arcade Building behind the High Street Mall. I can see why these offices we so sought after!

I am told these will be finished in April with new retail on the ground floor. Also check out this great timelapse video on the build process:

    This development will be a fantastic addition to the City of Fremantle

    Hi Brad

    What do you think of it in terms of bulk and scale from High and William Streets?

    I think this particular development will do a lot of damage to credibility in terms of the necessary densification for Fremantle.

    Hope builds bridges Fear builds walls

      It is a good point but when approving it I saw this building as part of the transition between the highly protected low-rise West End on the other side of Market Street and the higher scale East End from Target across. With the heritage buildings restored on each end of the arcade I think it is a good outcome.

      But it will be, as your suggest,controversial regardless.
