THE rejuvenation of one of Fremantle’s rundown heritage buildings is now complete.

Property company Match opened the doors to the $68 million Heirloom project at the Dalgety Wool Stores last week, inviting special guests to a preview tour of the newly transformed 94-year-old building.

Match managing director Lloyd Clark said Heirloom had been a challenging project but they were proud of the finished product.

“We grew a fascination for identifying and salvaging what we considered to be some of the City’s most treasured heritage buildings,” he said.

“We knew the risks involved in tackling these projects, but saw it as an opportunity and didn’t want to see amazing architecture be left derelict and eventually deteriorate, as is often the case.

“The Dalgety Wool Stores definitely fell into this category and its completion is without question our biggest achievement in the company’s 15-year history.”

Heirloom will be officially opened in the next few weeks.
