If you’re a fan of the multi-venue Old Synagogue precinct in Fremantle but dread making the trip south, listen up. The award-winning team behind the stunning heritage-style transformation are set to do the same thing NOR—breathing new life into a huge 1950’s warehouse space along Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley.
Originally held by the Turvey Brothers for manufacturing bespoke furniture, the industrial-style building at 521-525 Beaufort Street has most recently been occupied by Empire Furniture, who were there for 12 years before closing up shop in 2019.
They plan to preserve the building’s rich history and character while giving it a bold, contemporary fit out that draws people to the precinct, with three unique venues, including a multi-level restaurant, large gastro pub complete with beer garden and plenty of breezy roof decks perfect for enjoying a sunny afternoon sip, plus a late-night speakeasy to cosy up in. And if the Old Synagogue is anything to go by, it’ll be bang on trend and absolutely stunning.
This new development is the latest in a long list of revamps along the once bustling strip, with other notable action including the reopening of beloved small bar Clarences as the new Clarences Company Co and the snazzy revamp of the iconic Flying Scotsman by Three Pound Group, which is due to finish up soon. With the Old Synagogue team coming to the hood too, we have a feeling 2021 is going to be a very big year for Mount Lawley so watch this space.
