The State Government has opted to stay local today after confirming the sale of the Fremantle Technical College to the Prendiville Group.
After standing dormant, the currently under utilisied heritage-listed buildings will be restored by the company.
Prendiville Group is planning the development of a training school for hospitality professionals, and as part of their commitment to the redevelopment, will also relocate to South Terrace within the technical institute building.
A new alfresco food and beverage offering will be initiated as part of a short-term activation of the site, with a potential future stage including a hotel or student accommodation facility fronting Norfolk Lane.
The new tourism and hospitality facility will provide dining and accommodation options within walking distance of key tourist attractions including the Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Prison, Round House and Maritime Museum.
