Work has commenced on Yolk Property Group’s Little Lane apartments at 52 Adelaide Street in Fremantle, with demolition of the iconic site now underway.
Home in the 1960s and 1970s to the much loved Coles department store and in more recent times the Many 2.0., Little Lane will feature 70 apartments above a laneway alive with a new mix of cafe and foodie culture.
Yolk Property Group Director Pete Adams said one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest construction providers Icon / Cockram had been appointed to build Little Lane.
“We chose Icon / Cockram for their experienced and well respected local staff, their proven longevity having been in operation for 158 years and their proud association as part of Kajima Corporation – an $11billion Japanese construction powerhouse,” Mr Adams said.
“Designed by Harris Jenkins Architects, the apartments make the most of natural light and include impressive sustainability and energy-saving features that make it easier and more affordable for people to live in a way that makes smarter use of the earth’s resources.
“With extensive use of rooftop solar panels and a guarantee from an independent energy supplier, residents will be rewarded with a discounted rate of 10 per cent less than Synergy’s A1 Home electricity rates.”
“Since we started demolition, we have noticed a rise in enquiry which has resulted in good sales results over the last few weeks.”
Just 100 metres from the nearly completed, highly anticipated Kings Square redevelopment in the heart of Fremantle’s East End, Little Lane will feature modern interiors designed by Rezen Studios.
Affordable through a mix of dwelling sizes, the one, two and three-bedroom residences start from $359,000.
Mr Adams said Yolk Property Group constantly looks for cleaner, greener energy solutions that protect the planet and reduce residents’ power bills.
“We are focused on the long term – creating communities and empowering them to make positive change in the way their lives impact the environment,” he said.
“Everything has been planned out at Little Lane including construction processes, apartment design, building orientation and material selection to make this a part of the project from the very beginning rather than an afterthought.”
With demolition works scheduled to take three months, construction is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021.
