I love the idea of this new development - can't wait for it to be built!

This might be a suitable for an artificial island, but will be a terrible blot on the croydon landscape, whcih does not need yet another high-rise tower left to run to seed. no company has money for these white elephants at present - plans should be aborted as soon as possible.

Regeneration scheme set to deliver key transport hub for East Croydon 

A new landmark, mixed-use scheme is set to bring world class architecture to the heart of Croydon, providing over 1million sq ft of new office, retail and residential space. The proposed development will provide dramatic regeneration to an area on Cherry Orchard Road, and is additionally set to transform East Croydon station into one of the leading commuter transport hubs in London. Four new towers a public plaza and a new urban park will form the main focal point of the development which will complement and help bring forward the rejuvenation of East Croydon Station. The buildings will be designed to respond to the environment at different times of the day and the seasons throughout the year. Menta, the development company have employed MAKE Architects and planners GL Hearn to develop plans for the site on Cherry Orchard Road. The development is in its early stages, but is likely to include a new station plaza with shops, restaurants and bars at ground level uniting existing bus, taxi and tram services with East Croydon Station. Above street level will be office space and a mix of private and affordable residential dwellings. Menta are seeking the views of Croydon Council as the proposals develop. The development is being designed to enhance and complement the surrounding area, responding to the public realm and Croydon’s existing skyline. MAKE Architects are working up plans in accordance with Croydon’s Unitary Development Plan and 2020 Vision plans. Sustainable architecture will be key throughout the development and a number of sustainability initiatives are being examined.
