101 George Street on site
Work continues on 101 George St, an offiste construction that is set to be the tallest modular tower in the world and is being delivered in just 24 months.
All homes will benefit from access to shared amenities including a podium garden, roof top gardens at the top of each tower, panoramic viewing walkway, gyms, residents lounge and private dining / event rooms. The scheme will provide a new civic space for Croydon at ground level- a ‘woodland winter garden’ that will offer a new green space to George Street and create a gateway to the emerging cultural quarter.
The ground floor also incorporates a new art gallery space, a café and some flexible spaces which will incorporate a wide range of possible uses including business incubator spaces and artist’s studio spaces.
The scheme will be two towers, a 38-storey and a 44-storey, scaling 135 metres and is being constructed with 1500 modules manufactured and installed by Vision Modular Systems from their purpose-built manufacturing facility in Bedford, where the majority of the fit out is installed including electrics and plumbing before the module is transported to the site.
