The 136 metre development provides 546 apartments designed and built exclusively for rent for Greystar, with 109 homes offered as affordable housing. The site marks the gateway to the London Borough of Croydon’s comprehensive plans for a new ‘Cultural Quarter’ opposite East Croydon Station, and a high level of design ambition was required.
