Foster submits ‘Ruskin Square’ Croydon scheme

Foster + Partners has submitted an outline planning application for its 93,000m² Ruskin Square project in east Croydon

Masterplanned for developers Stanhope and Schroders, the mixed-use project features 93,000m² of office space and 550 Allford Hall Monaghan Morris-designed homes.

Last year the practice redesigned its plans to accommoate a pedestrian bridge which is planned to cross a railway line adjactent to the 3.7 hectare site.

Ian Mason of Schroders said: ‘Ruskin Square is the centerpiece of East Croydon’s transformation into a new central business district.  It will deliver restaurants, cafes, a theatre, new homes, new public routes and outdoor space and 1 million square feet of grade “A” office space.’

David Camp of Stanhope added: ‘Just 15 minutes from central London by train, Ruskin Square offers modern workspace and residential accommodation in a new place just 2 minutes from an improved transport hub with competitive property prices and easy access to town centre retail and cultural amenities.’

In 2004 Fosters bagged planning permission for an earlier scheme for the site, but this stalled when the council backed an alternative project.

The first residential phase of the project is expected to start on site when the new pedestrian bridge opens in 2013.
