Success for Fremantle online initiative

CITY of Fremantle business attraction initiative, Fremantle Property Bank – an online database of commercial property available in the city’s CBD precinct – is experiencing initial success since its launch last month.

The online property bank provides free listings for property owners and businesses to encourage new and expanding businesses to find commercial accommodation in the Fremantle shopping precinct, particularly the city’s west end, which has been experiencing a sustained period of decline.

Recently the first business to find new premises on the Fremantle Property Bank website, design agency Green Room Creative, moved into its new office location on Cliff Street from its former premises in Nedlands.

The agency’s director Nick Bruechle said traditionally its type of business would be suited to areas closer to the CBD, but with advances in new technology businesses could hang out their shingle just about anywhere without losing touch.

“The port has always been a great source of inspiration for artists and other creatives, and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see more people from advertising and related industries setting up shop here,” he said.

Chelsea Project Officer Scott Mills said the Property Bank database was helping attract new business to the area.
