Fairfield unveils plans for new East Croydon skyscraper at Essex House site
Developers have unveiled plans for 300 flats in a new skyscraper near East Croydon station.
The proposals would see a two-tower building with shops on the ground floor constructed at the former site of Essex House, in George Street, once the headquarters of British Rail but unused for two decades.
The skyscraper would consist of 31-storey and a 16-storey towers.
The developer, Fairfield Ltd, is set to submit a planning application this spring.
A spokesman said: "The site has the potential to deliver high-class residential housing, with an enhanced public realm and an active retail frontage immeadiately opposite to East Croydon station.
"The site is currently underutilised, vacant since the early 1990s and in need of redevelopment, and we intend to deliver this to the highest possible standard."
Essex House site is identified by the Fairfield Masterplan as a potential gateway to Croydon and an area well-suited to residential developments.
