EPR bags planning to convert Nestlé office tower to homes
EPR has won planning to overhaul the St George’s House office tower in Croydon and convert it into flats
The project for developer Legal & General was unanimously approved by Croydon Council’s planning committee last night (7 February).
The 28-storey scheme transforms the disused Ronald Ward and Partners-designed office building – known locally as Nestlé Tower – into 288 residential apartments with 270m² of community uses.
The 1964 tower’s existing frame – comprising 6 metre-wide bays – will be retained and extended with an additional three floors. EPR’s façade design features an anodised aluminium frame with metallic-finish panels.
