MANY changes but staying 6160

MANY 6160  is Australia’s largest temporary space activation project (possible the largest anywhere in the world but as they say it is a bit hard to know how to measure this) .

Since Spacemarket opened it in October 2013, the former department store has become a fabulous cutting edge retail space with producers above and a gallery below.

But all good things must … well … change and evolve and MANY 6160 V1.0 is closing and moving on so the Kings Square project can get underway.

In fact this weekend (18/19) is their last in the old Myer building (check out the leaving event below) and I think you’ll agree that the project has been a huge success for Fremantle and exceeded expectations in terms of longevity and quality. The City of Fremantle has been working closely with the MANY team since the project launched and lately on their transition plan.

So the exciting news is that MANY 6160 will transition to MANY 2.0 in three other under-utilised buildings in Fremantle:

Big parts of the retail floor will be relocating to 52 Adelaide St (old-Spotlight). It will be great to see that area get some much needed reactivation.

The production floor will largely go into 45 Henderson St (the Old Police Station) and 135 Stirling Hwy (Old Matilda Bay Brewery).

I am extremely pleased to see this amazing initiative continue and evolve. MANY has been a key part of keeping Fremantle unique and creative.

The leaving party is next Friday the 24th. All welcome.
