As Kings Square in Fremantle starts to take shape, new tenders have been released for the construction of the new Civic Building and Library and Leasing Agent services.
The City of Fremantle is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified, experienced, safety and quality conscious construction contractors for the project. Expressions of Interest will close on Friday 17 November 2017 at 2.00 pm (AWST).
The building will be 4 stories and has been designed to complement its location and proximity to the heritage listed Old Town Hall building. The new building will have a number of direct linkages with the Old Town Hall, to allow the two buildings to be interconnected.
The building is to include:
* A library
* Civic Meeting Areas
* Community Meeting Areas
* Offices for the City's Administrative Function
* Lettable Retail, Food and Office spaces
* A unique urban room
Demolition of the current building will not form part of the scope of work.
Real Estate Services
There is also a current tender for a qualified and experienced Leasing Agent. The successful agent will, in conjunction with the City, compile a list of proposed operators for the four ground level commercial tenancies within the new City of Fremantle administration building development.
The tender closes on 27 October 2017.
About Kings Square
The renewal of Kings Square is a joint project between the City of Fremantle and project partner Sirona Capital with a total value of $270 million.
Sirona Capital is investing $220m into the commercial precinct which includes redeveloping the former Myer building, replacing the Queensgate building and upgrading the Queensgate car park. There will be new offices across the two buildings and new prime retail and entertainment that will add to the Freo retail culture.
The City of Fremantle’s contribution is $50 million to replace the current administration centre, library and visitor centre with a contemporary complex designed by renowned Fremantle architect, Kerry Hill &Associates. There will also be extensive work to upgrade community public spaces in the square.
The end result is a coordinated approach to redeveloping the entire Kings Square precinct.
