Leaders in smarter apartment projects, Pace are no strangers to awards. As an integrated builder and developer, their motto is Design, Construct, Deliver. And their integrated approach is clear in every aspect of this collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments.


From the external facade, Pace of Collingwood screams quality, but in a way that slips into the surrounding architecture with care and attention – a result of Pace’s collaboration with renowned SJB Architects. Their use of brick, metal tiles and concrete rise up the building to its bronze crown – quite a statement, yet perfectly suited to the location.


Evidence of the third key contributor here comes in the form of the exquisite interiors by We Are Huntly. They have styled these premium homes perfectly, with a neutral palette that can be customised with a choice of warm greys and deep, charred tones or a selection of subtle, lighter hues.


In open plan homes such as these, the flow from living room to kitchen is a key aspect. And here the kitchens have a modern edge, clearly defined by the geometric lines, polished stone benchtops, ceramic mosaic tiling to the splashback and light toned cabinetry. Making life easier, built-in appliances are from Smeg and Fisher & Paykel.


Most of the apartments feature an island bench that’s simple and functional. And another smart feature we like is the inclusion of a mirrored wall panel, carefully positioned to reflect light and maximise the visual space of the kitchen.

Every apartment at Pace of Collingwood has its own private balcony or courtyard. For minimal disruption to the facade and maximum privacy, these are inset from the outer form of the building, bringing these outdoor relaxation and entertainment spaces further into the homes themselves – residents will be able to open the expansive doors and effortlessly entertain.

Helping to create a village atmosphere, the building will feature three retail tenancies at ground level. Should one of these end up as a cafe, as we see with these kinds of projects on our travels, this will help to connect the residents to the building and the building to the surrounding community.


Perfectly suited to the brick and tile rooftop views, the building’s ‘park in the sky’ features communal areas just waiting for you to invite friends over. There are a number of private break-out spaces so you can find your own spot to relax.


From the rooftop to the basement, where facilities include at least one car spot per apartment, bike storage and additional secure lock up storage.

Increasingly popular, creative and culturally vibrant Collingwood continues a steady transformation into the kind of suburb that welcomes just about anyone. These apartments are located just a 5-minute walk from vibes Smith Street with its collection of cool coffee spots, eateries, boutique clothing and homeware stores. 


This endless discovery on offer around Collingwood is driven by its constant turnover of events, places and people to discover. If you’re a local and ‘in the know,’ there’s always something new to hear of by word of mouth, such as pop-up galleries like Rone and other temporary creative spaces. In a way, this very nature of discovery is also included in the way the building has been designed, with secluded rooftop areas and architectural surprises.

Take your pick from the nearby 86, 109 or 12 trams into the CBD, or walk it in around 20 minutes. Collingwood Station and Hoddle Street bus stops are also a short walk.


These apartments are also located within the desirable school zone for Collingwood College Prep-12 with campuses for the Australian Catholic University, Melbourne University and RMIT University close by.
