South Fremantle Power Station redevelopment

The City of Cockburn's response to WAtoday on 15 September 2022 about the redevelopment of South Fremantle Power Station in North Coogee

Question: How disappointed is the city that Australian Capital Equity has pulled out of the South Freo project?
The City strongly believes the former South Fremantle Power station site will play a distinctive role as a unique coastal landmark incorporating a vibrant mixed use development to enhance the Cockburn Coast, provide a national tourism destination and a regional employment hub.
We are disappointed, but the opportunity to get involved in the realisation of this coastal gem is still very much alive.
Question: What does this mean for the project and the broader area?
See above
Question: What would the City like the government to do to finally rejuvenate the area and the building?
We appeal for the State Government to acknowledge the State significance of the heritage-listed South Fremantle Power Station for the benefit of all West Australians.
This site represents a fantastic opportunity for the State Government to make this redevelopment a project of significance and a coordinated approach by State Government agencies would help achieve this.
