Shedkm has submitted a planning application for this 10-storey office block at the Ruskin Square site in Croydon
Part of developers Stanhope and Schroders’ 3.7 ha Ruskin Square redevelopment the office block will act as a ‘gateway’ to the site.
The first speculative office building at the development will stand adjacent to a new pedestrian bridge at East Croydon Station and opposite AHMM’s 22-storey residential tower, which will start on site later this year.
A double height retail space will be placed on the ground floor with 22,000m² of office space above and a south facing terrace on the eighth floor.
The London and Liverpool-based studio was chosen to design building in October 2012 replacing Foster + Partners that won planning permission for the scheme’s masterplan from Croydon Council in July2012, and was widely expected to design around 93,000m² of pre-let office space at the site.
