New plans for a hotel development on Point Street in Fremantle’s East End have been released for public comment.
The seven storey mixed-use development includes plans for a Doubletree by Hilton hotel with 168 rooms and a ground floor restaurant and bar.
There will also be 45 residential apartments and ground floor tenancies including five shops and two commercial units.
The development is proposed on the site of the existing Point Street multi-storey car park and the adjoining temporary open air car park.
A public information session about the proposal will be held on 9 January 2020 from 5:30-6pm at the City of Fremantle’s administration offices at Fremantle Oval, 70 Parry Street, Fremantle.
The plans and associated documents are available on the City of Fremantle’s My Say Freo website or can be viewed during business hours at the City’s customer service desk at Fremantle Oval.
The deadline for public submissions is 14 January 2020.
The plans will then be considered by the Fremantle Council’s Planning Committee before being referred to the Joint Development Assessment Panel for a final decision.
The Doubletree by Hilton proposal is just one of many hotel developments in the pipeline for Fremantle.
The City is also assessing a new application to redevelop the Woolstores shopping centre, which includes a 141-room hotel along with new commercial office space, retail outlets and a child care centre.
Work is currently underway to convert a row of the historic Warders Cottages on Henderson Street into a boutique 11-room hotel with a new indoor and outdoor bar and dining area nestled between the rear of the cottages and the Fremantle Markets.
Plans have also been approved to transform Fremantle’s state heritage-listed Police and Courthouse complex into a hotel and restaurant precinct.
The development plan includes a 62-room hotel on the police station site, adapting the courthouse into a bar and restaurant and adapting the lock-up and police quarters into shops and commercial units.
