Quay to the port

THE Fremantle Port is seeking expressions of interest for development of a 2.9-hectare site as part of the second stage of the Fremantle Waterfront Master Plan.

The site has been identified as suitable for a range of uses, including office developments and tourism-related retail.

Fremantle Ports general manager strategy and commercial development Chris Leatt-Hayter said the completion of the new $35 million Maritime Museum and the new ferry terminal had opened up access to the area.

“The new ferry terminal allows the river ferries to access Victoria Quay and this has helped to open up access for tourism providers,” Mr Leatt-Hayter said.

“The Fremantle Waterfront Master Plan set out a number of uses that are appropriate, covering things like professional and commercial offices and retail.”

Residential development has not been identified as an appropriate use, due to the demands of an operational port.

The master plan has set out a development strategy for the whole west end of Victoria Quay.

Plans to shift the freight train line closer in to the passenger train line will further open up the area and develop a closer link between the port and Fremantle’s city centre.

Frank Knight associate director Barry Toms said this landmark project would lead to development on superbly located land not required for port operational purposes.

“We anticipate that a number of new developments will be constructed as part of the first stage of transformation,” Mr Toms said.
