HM Prison Pentridge was an Australian prison built in 1850 in Coburg, Victoria. The first prisoners arrived in 1851. The prison officially closed on 1 May 1997. Pentridge was often known by the nickname "The Bluestone College," "Coburg College" or the "College of Knowledge." The grounds were originally landscaped by renowned landscape gardiner Hugh Linaker.Since decommissioning, the prison has been partly demolished to make way for a housing development. Large buildings have been built and a 16 floor modern apartment block is being planned. The site is split in two with the northern prison being developed by Valad Property Group and the other areas by Pentridge Village.
