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.
