Croydon Council has given planning permission for two new residential tower blocks on Dingwall Road.
Telereal Trillium, one of the UK’s largest property companies, will build 181 new homes across two buildings of nine storeys and 24 storeys on the site that currently houses the job centre.
The plans also included a flexible commercial space on the ground, first and second floors which could include a new restaurant, café or bar. The homes will include 88 one-bed apartments, 81 two-bed apartments and 12 three-bed apartments.
Telereal Trillium submitted the planning application in December 2017 after it was announced the job centre would be leaving the site. They are expected to move into the council offices, on Mint Walk, by the end of May.
Duncan Brisbane, development director at Telereal Trillium, believes the scheme will be a “fantastic addition” to the town.
He told the Croydon Advertiser: “Telereal Trillium endeavours to work closely with local councils to produce high quality plans that will enhance existing areas and are sensitive to their surroundings. We look forward to turning these plans into reality in the near future.
“We feel that this development will be a fantastic addition to Croydon offering homes for new and existing residents, and new facilities for the existing community.”
