As the final piece in the jigsaw the proposed development creates a new public colonnade which will allow pedestrian access from East Croydon station through to the newly refurbished Fairfield Hall and associated cultural quarter. This will form a natural extension of the public realm improvement and winter garden currently on site as part of the 101 George Street development.
The taller of the two towers hosts a new kind of housing community for London. Our co-living approach responds to the emerging London Plan policy and seeks to establish an exemplar that can help define this form of housing.
Through generous, carefully designed communal spaces the building encourages social interaction while making sure that each home is the right size to offer a place of retreat and privacy.
Building on the innovation at 101 George Street as the worlds tallest modular building, the proposed tallest element of the building will set a further record at 150m tall reaching approximately 15m beyond 101 George Street. This height reflects the buildings role at the heart of a cluster of tall buildings that mark East Croydon Station and the regeneration of FairField.
This remarkable record of the two tallest modular buildings in the world combined with bringing forward London’s first co-living development through the GLA planning process and will put Croydon at the forefront of 21st Century community creation.
