Make to submit Croydon towers for planning
The four-year-old London-based firm is working to Will Alsop’s 2020 Vision masterplan for the area, and is about to submit a planning application for the four towers, called Cherry Orchard, which will provide more than 150,000m2 of mixed-use space.
Backed by developer Menta, Make will deliver a 46-storey residential tower which will make up part of the 1,300 new homes planned for the site. Also part of the scheme is an office building, as well as extensive open spaces, cafes and shops.
Menta head Craig Marks said: ‘I am delighted to be part of Croydon’s renaissance as it adapts to the needs and aspirations of its residents for the 21st century.
‘The proposals have been developed to fully support Croydon Council’s Vision 2020 and will contribute to a more attractive, cohesive and user-friendly centre.’
Work is scheduled to start in mid 2009 subject to planning.
