Pentridge Prison Redevelopment
Coburg, Victoria. Australia
Urban renewal transformation to preserve the past and create a new chapter for an important historical asset.
Calibre Built Environment’s proactive and collaborative approach was essential in helping to realise the Pentridge Prison Redevelopment vision to create a vibrant, well-designed urban village that invigorates an important historical asset.
Developing thriving new community hub
Perfectly located to become the new heart of Coburg, this urban renewal project sees the significant prison site transformed into a new community hub complete with housing, retail, community areas and public open spaces.
Protecting heritage assets
A particular priority was to preserve the site’s historic integrity, most notably characterised by the famous bluestone walls. Thoughtful design and high quality construction has seen the new buildings seamlessly integrated with the existing heritage assets.
