High-Rise Mixed-Use Scheme in Croydon Town Centre for Eldon Housing Trust
RKG were appointed by Eldon Housing Trust to prepare concept regeneration plans for this important and prominent site in the heart of Croydon town centre.
The plan was to establish a sustainable, high-density, mixed-use scheme that delivers considerable new community facilities to the London Borough of Croydon. The scheme included 9,700m² of ‘affordable’ apartments and over 2,500m² of much needed office space, retail, cultural and leisure facilities.
Proposals outline a high-rise mixed-use scheme with a split eighteen-storey tower and adjoining six-to nine-storey community blocks.
Careful analysis of the site and the history and specific cultural requirement of Croydon helped inform the design solution with the aim of ensuring it has a real sense of place and identity as part of this exciting multi-cultural community.
