Mixed-use scheme on site this month 

At the heart of AWW’s comprehensive master plan for the regeneration of Croydon’s Cultural Quarter sits a new urban space, which reintegrates a Grade II listed former pumping station and a historic market. The adjacent bridge house provides 74 affordable apartments and sits above a ground an mezzanine retail space. A new bridge links this building with the area’s principle shopping street. The block wraps around an existing multi-storey car park, creating a powerful back-drop to the open public space. New voids are unleashed under the car park, prescribing spaces for shops and cafés to open out onto the square. Opposite sits a former telephone exchange that is converted into a further 66 apartments. A mixture of green and brown roofs along with off-site renewable energy provision form just a small part of many environmental measures incorporated into the regeneration.
