Three shortlists in the Offsite Awards
HTA has been shortlisted for:
Architect of the Year - George Street & various other schemes
George Street has been shortlisted in:
Best Use of Volumetric – George Street - Submitted by Tide Construction & Vision Modular Systems
Private Housing Project of the Year – George Street - Submitted by Tide Construction, Greystar & Henderson Park
101 George Street are two towers, a 38-storey and a 44-storey, scaling 135 metres and providing 546 new homes which have been designed specifically for rent and will be professionally managed onsite offering residents a 24/7 service.
The towers are the tallest modular towers in the world and have been delivered in just 24 months, from construction starting on site to residents moving in to their new homes.
All homes benefit from access to shared amenities including a podium garden, roof top gardens at the top of each tower, a panoramic viewing walkway, gyms, residents’ lounge and private dining / event rooms.
The development 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 building will be made from nearly 1500 modules that are 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 each module is transported to the site.
We are thrilled to be shortlisted and look forward to the virtual awards ceremony taking place on the 22nd September.
