Cold stores new role

FREMANTLE’S former Cold Stores site between Queen Victoria and Beach Streets is to be developed into a 101-unit complex for Fremantle’s battlers.

The redevelopment will retain and reuse significant heritage buildings, including the original 100 year old Fremantle Cold Storage building and its 1950s extension at the eastern end of the site on Beach Road.

Housing Minister Kim Hames said, in its history, the site had accommodated a tram station, power sub-station, foundry, bacon curer, meatworks and motor company.

Dr Hames said work on the $14 million redevelopment, designed by Spowers Architects, would begin in the middle of next year and be completed in twelve to eighteen months.
