A LITTLE over 18 months since construction began, Defence Housing Australia’s newest Fremantle development has reached its topping out milestone.

The last of the concrete has been poured on the Liv Apartments development, which will include 1300sq m of commercial space, landscaped courtyards and public open spaces.

DHA managing director Jan Mason said one-third of the apartments would be set aside as housing for Australian Defence Force families, with the rest to be sold to private owners and investors.

“This important milestone leads us closer to realising the vision behind Liv Apartments and its contribution to Fremantle’s exciting future,” she said.

“Our aim from the very beginning was for Liv Apartments to be a positive and progressive part of Fremantle’s community. In addition to employing local builders and tradespeople to boost the local economy, we have ensured Liv Apartments blends into the East End community while remaining environmentally-aware.”

Ms Mason said the project was on track and construction was expected to finish in August.
