Morello Phase II ready to deliver a further 445 new homes for Croydon

The Morello Quarter Phase II development is ready to start on site this year, subject to receiving planning consent, and would deliver a further 445 new homes to Croydon.

The major residential-led regeneration scheme follows the completion of the first phase last year, which included 297 1/2/3 bedroom apartments plus secure basement parking for 118 cars, enabling the delivery of the surrounding high-quality public realm.

The planning applications for the infrastructure-led second phase – Morello North & South Towers and Cherry Orchard Gardens – have been submitted and are awaiting a decision from Croydon Council.

The station facing development, featuring two 25-storey towers plus a building of five to nine storeys, would provide 445 1/2/3 bedroom apartments, around 19,000 sq ft of station linked retail and amenity space and also complete the public East Croydon bridge link that will connect central Croydon, the transport links and the Addiscombe community.

Craig Marks, chief executive of Menta, said: “Menta Redrow would like to thank local people for all their support. The team has listened and explored feedback over the last few months.

“We are committed to delivering a desirable place to live and work, with quality homes and new community spaces.

“We are also committed to delivering better links to shops and public transport and will fund, build and install the new bridge link, subject to necessary Network Rail and Croydon Council consents.”

Craig Marks is at Mipim, the world’s largest real estate exhibition, in Cannes this week, and will feature on the panel discussion – Croydon: It’s happening – on the London Stand on Wednesday afternoon.
