FORMER ESSEX HOUSE,

101 GEORGE STREET

INTRODUCTION

SUMMARY OF PROPOSALS

Tide Construction Limited will shortly submit planning proposals to London Borough of Croydon Council for a new building on the vacant site of the former Essex House at 101 George Street. A public exhibition to explain the proposals and provide further details will take place on Tuesday 19th September from 3-8pm at Jury's Inn. Leaflets are being distributed in the local area.

 

The proposal is for 546 new homes which will be purpose built to rent. 20% of the home will be Affordable Homes. All homes will benefit from access to shared amenities including a podium garden, roof top gardens at the top of each tower, panoramic viewing walkway, gyms, residents lounge and private dining / event rooms. The building will be part 44 and part 38 storeys and will be built using offsite technology by Vision Modular Systems.

 

The application provides a new civic space for Croydon at ground level- a ‘woodland winter garden’ that will offer a new green space to George Street and create a gateway to the emerging cultural quarter. The ground floor also incorporates a new art gallery space, a café and some flexible spaces which will incorporate a wide range of possible uses including business incubator spaces and artist’s studio spaces.
