We’re Another Year Older… But It’s Been A Good 2016 for Freo

I hope everyone had a enjoyable Christmas and most of you are getting a well-deserved break over coming days and weeks.

One thing I love about this time of year is the opportunity to look back and reflect on the last 12 months.

2016 was a big year for Fremantle so thought I’d wrap the year up with a few photos of the year.

We had some wonderful visitors from Australia’s Governor General to the King and Queen of the Netherlands. We had politicians from all sides of the WA’s Parliament visit Fremantle and, of course, some important announcements including the transformative 1500 government workers moving into the Kings Square redevelopment as well as the important state heritage listing of the Fremantle’s West End.

In 2016 I think it is also fair to say the Fremantle turned the investment and development corner with a number of new developments completed including the Atwell Arcade, the new MSC headquarters on Cliff Street, the Heirloom Woolstores redevelopment, and the Quest Hotel on Packenham St.

But it was not all about development, in 2016 there was also some amazing community events such as the High Street long table dinner to raise money for St Pats, the very special Fremantle Foundation Impact 100 community projects, and the emergence of impressive on-line communities like Fremantle Massive. This is not to mention the Australia Day conversation that went national and of course the fabulous container Rainbow.

It’s been a good year and here is to a great 2017 too.
