what a waste, no residential, and how does this equate to the City's expectation to attract people to live in the City Centre How short sighted to sell of the City's assets to for a small financial gain. when it would have made more sense to be in a Joint Venture with the developers and share in the financial growth and regular revenue stream..

Well I reckon it's about time. Good on you Fremantle! Possibly the most progressive council we have.

Fremantle have been misleading the residents of Fremantle. All along it promised that redevelopment would entice people to live in the City by providing residential accomodation as part of the King's square development. This promise has not been honoured. Fremantle City Council have taken its residents for a ride....

Without progress the city will die....This is a significant step forward & should be supported

Fremantle should learn from Melbourne's revival in the 1990s. For every new office space in the city, there needs to be several new residences. Without residential growth, the city will die at 5pm daily. And if all the development is commercial-only, then the public transport is one-way and overloaded in the morning, one-way and overloaded in the afternoon, and under-patronised the rest of the time. Getting residents into the city is the only way to keep the shops in business too. Letting iconic resident businesses like the local AFL footy club go doesn't help either.

The Fremantle CBD is in dire need of rejuvenation as it is genuinely in the pits. But no residential? WOW! What a waste. Surely they can get some apartments in there plus a hotel plus offices plus retail.
