FINALLY the City of Fremantle is looking at doing something with the Queensgate building and surrounding Kings Square precinct. Landowner Sirona Capital Management, which acquired the Myer Fremantle building last month, have proposed an $80 million redevelopment which the Council is currently considering. The building will be redeveloped and re-leased in partnership with Luke Saraceni’s Saracen Properties.
“Should it be found feasible to proceed, a great deal of effort will go into a design that is worthy of the important place King’s Square serves as a civic space in Fremantle.”
Freo used to be one of my favourite places, and I have often wondered about the Kings Square area, and the strange layout of the Queensgate building (anyone know who originally did this one?). I think its way overdue and really hope this happens.
