Burt Street, Fremantle

Burt Street banner

The Department of Communities (Communities) has appointed Edge Visionary Living (Edge) to deliver a $129 million apartment development at 19-25 Burt Street, Fremantle.

The 1.4ha Burt Street site is located in the cultural east end of Fremantle – near the city centre, arts centre, harbour and public transport.

The site will be transformed into a high-quality residential destination, featuring five new buildings with up to 265 apartments, including six live-work artist studios. There’ll be diverse housing choices to suit a range of people and budgets, as well as vibrant shared spaces for the whole community to enjoy and a small portion of space for commercial uses.

A focus of the project is to explore ways to implement sustainability initiatives and to ensure the development complements the vibrant Fremantle community.

Indicative timeline

The site will be developed in stages.
After a period of community consultation and development approvals, the first stage of works is expected to begin in October 2021, noting timeframes may be affected by COVID-19.

Community consultation

Communities is committed to engaging with the local community to deliver housing that complements the vibrant Fremantle community.

While Edge has prepared a draft development design as part of its proposal, the design will be further refined and there’ll be opportunities for the community to provide feedback.

During the detailed planning phase, community consultation will be led by Edge along with Communities.

Upcoming consultation opportunities will be published on this page when further information is available.

Anti-hooning measures

Communities has been notified of illegal hooning activity occurring on site and is investigating effective and cost-efficient solutions to prevent this, in consultation with the City of Fremantle, WA Police and surrounding residents.

If you’d like to provide input into this matter and be part of a community reference group, please email the project team with your contact details and they will be in touch.

The WA Police have been informed of the situation and is now monitoring the area.
If you do witness hooning or other illegal behaviour on site, please contact the local police station on 131 444 at the time of occurrence.
