A major step forward in the revitalisation of Pentridge, Coburg into a sustainable economic, residential and cultural hub has been taken, with the Victorian Government approving the construction of the Air Apartments at 21 Pentridge Boulevard, Coburg.
In line with the vision of the approved Pentridge masterplan, devised in sustained consultation with heritage and planning experts working to the guidance of the Burra Charter, the Air Apartments reflects a desire for an integrated approach to housing and housing diversity in the area. Besides allowing new entry points into the market for locals, it will also provide much needed parking across three levels for the neighbouring existing properties of the Quartermaster Building and the Industry Lane townhouses.
With its close proximity to public transport infrastructure, shops and schools, the approval of the Air Apartments also responds to the need for more sensitive higher-density urban design, as experts look for ways to reduce the pressures of outward sprawl in Australia’s cities. Significantly, the Air Apartments will help ensure viability of the Pentridge project as a whole – both as a new urban village expected to generate an estimated 8,000 jobs for the region upon completion, and as a site of heritage preservation and protection.
