New Buildings

These lists distinguish between entirely new buildings - and new constructions built inside or in association with older structures, usually facades.

Entirely new buildings

The Maritime Museum, 2002, on the western end of Victoria Quay, was designed by Cox Howlett & Bailey Woodland.

Murray Slavin designed the MSC building in Cliff St, 2016 - adjacent to the Dalgety Building, cnr Phillimore St, which is tenanted by MSC.

Tannock Hall of Education (named for the first VC, Peter Tannock) is a 2010 NDU building on the corner of Cliff and Croke Streets. It was designed by Marcus Collins and built by Fairweather W & Son. The Pier Hotel once stood here.

New buildings in association with existing facades

The new Atwell Arcade building, which is inside and above the older Atwell Building that faces both High St (Mall) and Cantonment St, still has an arcade, but it's almost all modern. The original arcade was designed by Harold Boas. The new building is a glass box in a conventional Mies style.

The Halco building on the corner of Short St at 8 Pakenham St was a warehouse constructed in 1929. (It was also the site of Manning's Folly 1858-1928.) A 77-apartment building is now on the site, and the building you see in the photo has been gutted. The warehouse was designed by Joseph Allen.

The Fremantle Workers Club was at 7-9 Henry St 1956-2015. The site is now a four-storey apartment building, keeping the groundfloor facade, which is one brick deep.

Customs House, at the corner of Phillimore St, no. 2 Henry St, still has the curved facade of the Falk Building tho the interior - and that of several other buildings on a large site bounded by Phillimore, Henry, and Pakenham Streets - has been completely rebuilt for the occupation of various commonwealth government departments. At least this part of the building (if not all of 'it') is apparently now called Customs House, as that's what the sign on the building says.

The next bit of Customs House, along Henry St, with the older facade.

Another bit, continuing along Henry St, but with a new facade.

And another, also with a new facade. This bit has a date, 1986, and a sign: Australian Customs House Store.
