Project summary

M/27 is nestled behind the former SEC Heritage Substation that was constructed in 1932. To the rear boundary is the expansive Fremantle Park.

The project contains 40 apartments over 4 levels, in a mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom configurations. Parking is provided at the basement and ground levels. The apartments capture sweeping views of the Fremantle port and adjacent Fremantle Park reserve and sports fields.

The development has successfully achieved key design drivers of the project brief summarised as follows;

  • 100% Cross ventilated apartments
  • Captialise views and natural light
  • Supports and responds to Fremantle’s unique cultural heritage.
  • Contributes to the community’s desired identity and character for Fremantle
  • Provides a meaningful and significant Public Art Contribution.

Unlocking a complex development site, the clever use of space, and integration with the heritage context – M27 is a truely contextural built form response.
