MYRE: The Exciting Future of the Myer Fremantle Building

You are no doubt aware that Myer Fremantle closed not too long ago, leaving the huge building vacant. Seems a shame really, don’t you think? Well some very enterprising locals thought so, and they’ve taken the first steps to turn this vast, vacant space into a hive of activity. After taking control of the building’s lease and securing some pretty cool anchor tenants, the team at Spacemarket are now looking for other individuals and businesses to get involved.

The elusive Spacemarket have a knack for looking at the vacant, the abandoned, the unused and seeing its potential. They see through boarded up windows into a world of possibility (kind of like that scene in the 1980 film Xanadu). Instead of an empty, brown block, they envision rooftop parties, workshops, independent retail spaces and much, much more.

The ground floor will be a unique retail and gallery space. They’ve currently secured Uncle Joes barber and café as well as Feast Your Eyes gallery and creative space for that level. The first floor will be all about production, all kinds of making and building, with A Good Looking Man secured to go in here. And up on the roof, well that could be a bar, café, gym, or events venue with a carefully curated program that ensures tourist and community involvement.

Does this all sound very exciting to you? Perhaps you have an idea for a new business and you need a little push to get it off the ground, or you are an established business that would like to get in on this grand plan? Well get in touch with the team by selecting the right area:

And here are the links to the Expression of Interest forms if you want to know more and get in there: retail and production.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this space as it develops. We can’t wait to see what happens!
