Part of the City of Fremantle's $275,000 upgrade of the High Street Mall includes public seating and tables, bike parking facilities and better lighting.

The upgrades, slated to finish by the end of the year, are part of a local re-branding and refresh of the area, according to Fremantle manager of economic development and marketing, Tom Griffiths.

He said there’s also been some great work by landowners in preserving and improving the heritage components of some of the mall’s buildings, particularly in the Manning and Atwell Arcades.

“We’re also partnering with the owners of Atwell Arcade to implement an interactive public art piece we hope will become a key feature and talking point of the new-look mall. We expect to have this installed later next year,” he said.

“Over the past year the City has worked with landowners to devise a strategy to enhance the mall, which we all agreed was looking tired and in need of some attention. Part of this was landowners re-branding the mall and developing targeted leasing strategies to attract the right mix of retailers."
