Telereal Trillium has been given the green light by Croydon Council for a new, residential-led regeneration scheme on Dingwall Road, East Croydon.
The scheme includes 181 new homes plus flexible commercial space which could include a new restaurant/bar.
The developer submitted the planning application in December 2017 after the Department for Work and Pensions announced it would be vacating the job centre building on site and relocating to new premises in central Croydon. The site is part of a city block surrounded on all sides by significant-scale new development including Ruskin Square, Vita, Boxpark, One Landsdowne Road, East Croydon Station, Cambridge House, and neighbouring Carolyn House, Westfield and the Whitgift Quarter.
The plans approved include:
- 181 new homes across two towers of 9 storeys and 24 storeys
- Affordable housing – a mix of affordable rent and shared ownership
- Flexible commercial space on the ground, first and second floors which will include consent for a potential restaurant, café or bar
- Car-free development apart from disabled car parking spaces
- Dedicated secure cycle storage
- Private and communaloutdoor spaces, including courtyard and rooftop gardens
Duncan Brisbane, Development Director at Telereal Trillium said: "Telereal Trillium endeavours to work closely with local councils to produce high quality plans that will enhance existing areas and are sensitive to their surroundings. We feel that this development will be a fantastic addition to Croydon offering homes for new and existing residents, and new facilities for the existing community. We look forward to turning these plans into reality in the near future.”
