Got to hand it to Mandurah though for pursuing density. Most councils who were running out of land to have developed would just decide to leave their population stagnate for all eternity.

People in glass houses

Posted on 13 September 2013. Tags: Architecture, Heritage, Property
CHRIS THOMSON

A grand old building in Fremantle’s rustic West End is set to be revamped to incorporate a dazzling glass house at which only five of the port city’s infamous local objectors have thrown stones.

The revamped building is slated to become the Fremantle offices of Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A., the world’s largest shipping line in terms of container vessel capacity.

MSC building FremantleMSC wants the pictured, $7.08 million project to include a revamp of the landmark Elders building, otherwise known as Wilhelmsen House, on the corner of Cliff and Phillimore streets.

Also included is a four-floor glass-fronted annex with roof deck from which MSC’s staff would be able to peer across Cliff Street at the defunct Hotel Fremantle now owned by the University of Notre Dame. The annex would be built over an existing, street-level bitumen car park.

If approved by a state government planning panel when the panel meets on Thursday, as recommended by the City of Fremantle, the project will include 1490sqm of office space.

MSC building FremantleDuring the mandated consultation period for the renovation rescue, 33 submissions were received, only five of which were objections.

Fremantle is well known for its powerful heritage lobby. Staunch objectors have sunk many a developer’s design for the historic port city.

Issues raised by the five objectors include assertions that the four-floor building is too tall, will overshadow existing structures and does not have enough parking.

The state heritage office supports the plans subject to monitoring of any structural impacts on the Elders building, and to further details being provided on the shape and colour of the Elders’ building’s distinctive existing roof.

Too tall? WTF are some people smoking? It's the same height as adjoining buildings.

Lol. So Perth.
The Fremantle objectors must have smoked one too many cones to come up with something like that.

It's unnecessarily complicated and a bit to heavy on the kitschy sun/sea symbolism, but I'm always a sucker for glass boxes between heritage buildings. And Fremantle needs every development it can get, frankly.

Having a hard time accepting that those objections are not biting satire.

Or possibly people just using a cut & paste objection for every development?

That was a joke, but I agree re framework. It doesn't look technically accurate at all, especially considering the top floor is supposedly open air.

I love it.

Exactly the sort of development that allows Fremantle to keep its old character while allowing some modern amenity.

Fremantle would be amazing if all the cheap shitty 60's fillers and open carparks were replaced with this type of development.

If it were residential, the design couldn't be anything like it is, so that's a mutually exclusive desire there stu.
