City of Fremantle unanimously approved a mixed use development that will reinvigorate our East End, bringing over 200 new apartments and space for 2 new restaurants to a location that desperately needs activation.

  • 2 x ‘Restaurant/Café’ tenancies at ground floor on north-east and south-east corners of building (583 sqm total floor area).
