Located within the historic Pentridge Prison, Pace 3058 is a sustainably-minded village of townhouses and apartments that provides its own sense of community, while also connecting residents with the broader Coburg community. Designed to offer a personal sanctuary within each home, the architecture of the building represents the post-war European heritage of Coburg, with subtle hints of the former goal site.
“Even if we’re just a small part of the history and future of this incredible city, then it’s a legacy worth pursuing,” says Shane Wilkinson, managing director of Pace Development Group, who have partnered with Pace Building Group, SJB Architects, Studio Wonder, and Aspect Studios to bring the project to life.
Pace 3058 aims to merge the history of the precinct with distinct sustainability to ensure a lifestyle in tune with Melbourne’s future.

Pace 3058 is laden with future-focused ideas, including energy-efficient design, double glazed and low-emissivity windows, and cross-ventilation for better regulation of internal temperatures. The rooftop greenery supports biodiversity and restricts urban heat island effects. On-site bicycle storage and repair workshops also encourage travelling via bicycle.
Just down the road from the new village lies Pentridge Piazza, a modern development featuring art studios and gallery spaces, as well as a shopping hub, cinema complex and supermarket. Residents are also in walking distance to public parks and gardens. Edgars Creek Parkland and Coburg Lake Reserve are both just under a 15-minute walk away, with the bustling Merri Creek trail nearby as well. Open every Saturday, the always busy Coburg Farmer’s Market is just a five-minute walk away.
As well as so much located within walking distance, Pace 3058 boasts many of its own amenities. Enjoy a morning swim in the 25-metre lap pool or head to the residents’ lounge of an evening to enjoy a quiet drink. Host a dinner party in the private dining space, or meet your neighbours over a shared onsite barbeque. There are also lush rooftop gardens and communal terraces to enjoy.
With Coburg primed for growth, having experienced a 12% property growth between 2021 and 2022 alone, Pace 3058 offers a truly unique opportunity to invest in a future-proof home within a vibrant, growing locale.
