Shayher Group purchased the Pentridge site in 2013. Our main objective is to create an integrated hub of community activity with contemporary, architecturally superb residential, commercial and retail spaces that add to and celebrate the site’s rich heritage.
The vision for Pentridge is to create a vibrant, well-designed urban village that invigorates an important historical asset, transforming it into a new community hub complete with housing, retail, community areas and public open spaces.
The site is perfectly located to become the new heart of Coburg: a centre that will enhance the overall livability of the area by providing opportunities for integrated residential, commercial, food, leisure and retail offerings.
Preserving the site’s historic integrity, such as the famous bluestone walls, will be a priority. Thoughtful design and high quality construction will seamlessly integrate new buildings with existing heritage assets.
We are a team of experienced, professional property developers deeply invested in Australia’s property market, with interests in retail and residential development that has seen us deliver quality apartment projects across Australia.
Our mantra is to blend considered design with neighbourhood character while creating flexible and abundant public space for residents and the wider community to enjoy.
The Pentridge Prison redevelopment is very special to us. In fact, the heritage of the site is what attracted us to the area. We want to preserve and enhance this historic asset, opening it up to the community for use over decades to come.
Our experience in combining residential and retail elements in developments will result in a high quality urban village that seamlessly adapts to and complements the existing character of the site, suburb and its people.
