Tallest Croydon building wins consent

  • Comment
Devereux has just won consent for Croydon's 'tallest tower' as plans for Croydon Gateway continue to flounder, it has emerged.

The west London-based practice has released this image to mark winning approval for the building at Croydon council's planning committee on 11 October.

The project, in the east of the town, will comprise two buildings. One will be five storeys and contain 20 flats. Another 'tiered' building of 176 flats will step up from four to 26 storeys.

The architect claims this will make it the tallest building in the south London suburb.

Meanwhile developer Stanhope - the principal landowner in the 'Croydon Gateway', also in east Croydon - is preparing for the start of a public inquiry on 24 January 2006 as realisation of its own high-profile plans looks increasingly distant.

The inquiry relates to the developer's feud with Croydon council over its Foster and FaulknerBrowns-designed scheme.

The council refuses to back the project in favour of another designed by Michael Aukett and developed by Arrowcroft, which it has given the planning green light for the same site.
