Change your view
At Pace, our view is it’s always time to change – to question what’s expected and challenge the status quo. It’s a curiosity that brings us together and sets us apart.
Our pursuit of excellence is driven by purpose – through reason, experience and insight gathered from new perspectives.
We’re not here to follow trends. We’re here to design, construct and deliver buildings that set them and stand the test of time.

Melbourne born and built
A team of passionate Melburnians, we’re proud to be part of its fabric. Melbourne is an amazing place and there’s nowhere we’d rather live and build.
Everything we do aims to support the people, communities and marketplace of the town we choose to call home.
With over 21 years’ experience and nearly 100 sold-out developments delivered, our commitment is clear.
Like a well-executed hook turn, we’re designed to keep this city moving.
Commitment from start to finish
Here at Pace we manage and complete the entire development and build process. With design, construction, finance, procurement, sales and marketing and settlement teams all in-house, our customers have peace of mind knowing that we take full ownership for the final product.
As a dedicated builder and a developer our customers don’t just benefit from ongoing accountability, but financial benefits too. Working with one company means reliable and consistent customer care and confidence knowing Pace is still around post settlement to support without delay.
The Pace team partners with industry-leading award winning architects and interior designers. We combine our eye for the big picture with an intimate understanding of what makes a home and a community. The result is well-thought-out designs in thriving locations.
For us, every project is a long-term commitment. We’re available and accountable from start to finish and 10 years beyond settlement. We’re dedicated to delivering everything our customers expect and more.
