Greystar submits fresh plans for key Croydon development site

Greystar, Develop Croydon partner, submitted proposals to build 783 rental homes across two buildings, a public green square, flexible working space and a retail unit at One Lansdowne in Croydon.
In the plans, sent to Croydon Council, the rental homes will be split across two buildings, one with 47 storeys and the other with 35. The proposals, designed by HTA Designs, also include a pledge to improve connections to East Croydon station.

After purchase of the site in 2022, Greystar prioritised the design of a smaller and more efficient development after feedback from local people. The plan prioritises a significant reduction in height and permeability in the form of a public green square.

Greystar has pledged that affordable rents at a range of different levels will be available throughout the development with residents of these homes benefiting from the same level of services and amenities including a gym, concierge and rooftop gardens.

The developer and its chosen architects for One Lansdowne Road are behind the existing residential development Ten Degrees, opposite East Croydon station, which has 545 high-quality purpose-built rental homes and is close to full occupation.

One Lansdowne is an incredibly important site for Croydon offering a great opportunity to deliver housing, new green space, and workspace. We have submitted these plans to unlock an underused site that has long been earmarked for development and, subject to planning being granted, we hope to commence construction on in Q1 2024.

We are really grateful to the local community for sharing feedback on our plans and helping to ensure that we can bring forward this new landmark for Croydon
