Welcome to the lands of the Wurundjeri people.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands we conduct business upon and pay our respects to Elders past present, and emerging. We respect the Country itself, including its trees, animals, spirits, waters, skies, stars, and special sites.
As operators of Adina Apartment Hotel Pentridge Melbourne, Chapter Place, North & Common, Olivine and The Interlude on the site of the former H.M. Prison Pentridge, we are working together with our owners, developers, and fellow tenants to create a place that recognises the importance of remembering Pentridge’s past, whilst welcoming a new community of residents, locals, and visitors to our neighbourhood.
Some of the public may feel that there is a stigma or undesirable atmosphere that lingers with the Pentridge Prison environment. In reality, this is not the case, and the buildings essentially present as handsome, very interesting structures that provide a wonderful resource and also act as a positive backdrop for new buildings and for community use.
Whilst Pentridge Prison was conceived as a place of confinement, today it has been transformed into a place of tranquillity. We are proud that areas of historical significance remain protected and, through the partnership with The National Trust, these heritage elements serve as an invitation for visitors to learn about a past that is confronting to discover, yet crucial to not forget.
Together, we want to create an environment that people won’t want to leave, as opposed to not being able to leave.
As a mark of respect to inmates and their families – many of whom still reside in the area – we ask your editorial team please consider your choice of language when writing about this site and the experiences within it.
