From prison to hotel

TFE Hotels expected to open its Adina Apartment Hotel Pentridge Melbourne in the back half of this year.

The transformation of Australia’s historic Pentridge Prison site into a mixed-use lifestyle precinct has breathed new life into the suburb of Coburg.

TFE Hotels group chief operating officer, Chris Sedgwick, says developer Shayher Group has taken a considered approach with its transformation of the historic prison site into a modern lifestyle precinct, complete with residential apartments, shopping, dining, outdoor cinema, events space and 125-key hotel. 

B Division’s exercise yard has been transformed into the hotel’s reception, modern glass hotel tower and porte cochere. The addition of a heritage interpretation area gives a nod to the history of the space.

Also, 19 heritage suites have been added to the former Division B section, which will offer guests the chance to stay in historic converted prison cells - each room is made up of either four or five cells - with all the modern conveniences.
