Pace initiates collaboration with Co-Ground at new project in Collingwood

Starting with an alert from their architect about unused space at their display suite, PACE Development Group has begun a unique collaboration with co-Ground, a registered charity who has located a pop-up cafe on the land where the display suite for PACE's next project - PACE of Collingwood - will eventually rise.

Co-Ground launched in 2015 in response to the devastation caused by record-breaking category 5 Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu and their 100% of their profits generated by Co-Ground are channeled into support their education and livelihood programs across the Asia-Pacific region.

With PACE covering rent, electricity, water and other associated building costs, Co-Ground is set to maximise revenue for its charitable ventures, whilst at the same time bringing good coffee to the locals of Collingwood.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Co-Ground. Not only because they make spectacular coffee - although that’s obviously a bonus – but also because of the important work they do with communities to improve education in developing nations. We believe being socially responsible is just as important as being fiscally profitable and corporate responsibility is a key component to being in business in the modern age,”

Andrew Crichton - PACE Development Group

PACE of Collingwood is a 79 unit development located on the corner of Wellington & Langridge Streets in Collingwood.  Building architect is SJB Architects and interiors by We Are Huntly; the project is set to have a fully activated rooftop garden featuring an open-air kitchen, barbeques, entertainment areas, dining facilities and uninterrupted CBD view from the roof and from level 4 upwards.

The building will have 9 residential levels and 4 basement levels which house car parks and lock-up storage spaces.  The ground floor is set to house bicycle storage and 3 retail tenancies on the prime corner.
