It was announced today that the proposed ING development on Victoria Quay has been abandoned. This is a superb victory for those people of Fremantle who opposed the out of scale, boring, and ugly shopping centre, that showed no respect for the sublime heritage we have been able to preserve in our city.
This is also a strong message to those councilors who are supportive of nearly anything, with the excuse that Fremantle needs to move on. YEP! Right, but not at the expense of the uniqueness and beauty of our city. We do not want BIG BORING BOXES!
Quality is what Fremantle needs, not quantity and height.
