Lands Minister Ben Wyatt today called for expressions of interest for the sale and redevelopment of the former Fremantle Technical College site in the heart of the port city.

Located opposite the iconic Fremantle Markets, the historic property offers heritage-listed buildings on more than 2,400 square metres of prime land and represents a significant redevelopment opportunity for the right investor.

The college site has been a part of the fabric of Fremantle since the late 1800s and is within walking distance of key tourist attractions including the Fremantle Prison, Round House, Maritime Museum and Fishing Boat Harbour.

The State Government is seeking a proponent who has the vision to reactivate and restore this underutilised heritage asset, building on the regeneration of Fremantle's city centre and successfully demonstrating heritage conservation and adaptive reuse.

Conservation and maintenance works were recently completed to prepare the character buildings for sale. Any future redevelopment plans will need to ensure the heritage value is retained and celebrated.

Expressions of interest close at 2pm on March 4, 2020. For more information and agent details, visit the Land asset sales page.
