MAKE has revealed the first images of its huge four-tower scheme in the heart of Croydon, south London.
The project in Cherry Orchard Road for developer Menta, will create more than 100,000m2
of new office, retail and residential space and will be instrumental in transforming East Croydon station into one of the capital's 'leading commuter transport hubs'.
It is understood the project will feature a mix of social, affordable and private housing and could create up to 2,500 new jobs.
The focal point of the development will be a new urban park which, the developer hopes, will 'complement and help bring forward the rejuvenation of' the station.
A spokesman for the developer said: 'The development is still in its early stages, but is likely to include a new station plaza with shops, restaurants and bars at ground level, uniting existing bus, taxi and tram services with East Croydon Station.'
Over the next few months the developer will carry out an extensive public consultation on the scheme which is expected to be submitted for planning later this year.by Richard Waite
