From the President

9 April, 2016

Fremantle Council heritage staff and Heritage Council staff have spectacularly failed to ensure good outcomes for the West End in recent building works.

The building pictured here on the corner of High and Adelaide Streets has been well restored above the awning, but no efforts were made to have the shopfront harmonise with the upper storey heritage. The incongruity is alarming and totally unsatisfactory.
Next door to the Boost outlet is City Beach, whose shopfront I helped design when Deputy Mayor, when owners pretended they didnt know what a good shopfront looked like. Traditional materials, look,  and form give semblance of original layout and harmonise with upper floor.
Please see previous post concerning damage to 5 Mouat Street last week.
