DHA project approved for Fremantle

DEFENCE Housing Australia has been given the green light to start their newest Fremantle project.

Earlier this month, the South-West Metro Development Assessment Panel approved a proposal to build 166 new apartments and a commercial space on a 4754sq m Queen Victoria Street site.

DHA acting managing director Jan Mason said when finished, the project would be home to around 300 people, including defence members and will have a big courtyard and room for at least five commercial operations.

“This is a great project that will deliver tangible benefits to existing and future Fremantle residents,” she said.

“We’re eager to deliver this project in a timely manner so that we can ensure there is an adequate supply of high quality homes available for our defence members.

“All going to plan, we’ll begin forward works by the end of the year and building work will commence next autumn.”
