The scheme is a design and build development of 99 mixed tenure flats in four to eight-storey blocks, with commercial space at ground floor level and under podium car parking.
The new building comprises three main elements. The main section fronts London Road and rises to six-storeys; on Bensham Road, it steps down to three-storeys to blend in with adjacent properties. The striking glass clad centrepiece is an eight-storey block at the corner of the two roads, creating a dramatic and elegant landmark for the town. Furthermore, there is a large undercroft car park on the ground floor.
In addition to providing much needed affordable homes for the residents of Croydon, the development creates a landmark building and new public space contributing to ongoing and extensive regeneration of the town.
