It takes a village.

After over 10 years of collaboration on the largest private-public partnership in the City of Fremantle’s history, Walyalup Koort and FOMO have been recognised as best in class.

The 2022 WA Property Council Award marked an evening of recognition for the Property industry, with Sirona Urban receiving two awards:

  • Best Mixed-Use Project for Walyalup Koort, in partnership with the City of Fremantle
  • Best Retail Project (under 75 stores) for FOMO

Walyalup Koort is the cornerstone of the renewal of Fremantle’s CBD, and the first major step in the city’s ‘Freo 2029’ vision. The project has transformed the heart of the city with a complete redesign of the old King’s Square and the Fremantle Civic Centre.

The $270 million project was realised through a landmark partnership between Sirona Urban and the City of Fremantle. With a singular vision of revitalising Fremantle as a space for people, it also brought together some of Australia’s leading architecture practices: Kerry Hill, Hassell and HDR. The bustling heart of a renewed city, it represents the largest single development project undertaken in Fremantle since the creation of Fremantle’s port itself.

FOMO retail precinct is part of the Walyalup Koort project. Designed by Susanne Pini at HDR and completed over four years, FOMO comprises 5,500 sqm of bustling retail space, with a diverse selection of retail, dining, service and entertainment vendors.

FOMO has supported the renewal providing a vibrant retail experience that spills into the streets and laneways of the surrounding precinct with food, festivals, art and live activations.

With the reuse of the old Myer department store, FOMO also celebrates its history and heritage, creating a truly unique retail precinct that reflects the vibrant personality of the surrounding community.
