Jason Perry, the Mayor of Croydon took part in the topping out at London Square Croydon marking an important milestone in the construction of the building to provide new homes in the heart of the town.
The centuries-old ceremony of celebrating the progress of a building nearing completion took place on the 25th storey of the building, with spectacular views over London, Surrey, Kent and Sussex.
Mayor Perry helped to lay a topping out plaque on the roof, assisted by London Square Group’s Chief Executive Adam Lawrence.
“I was delighted to be a part of this milestone in the development of London Square Croydon, which will provide much-needed housing and support the regeneration of Croydon town centre. Sitting at the heart of West Croydon, it will provide a welcome boost to the local economy.”
Jason Perry, Executive Mayor of Croydon
“We are building 240 new homes in two attractive landmark brick buildings, with 55 per cent affordable homes, a mix of social rent and shared ownership, as well as homes for private sale, while also playing an important role in growth plans for the area.”
Adam Lawrence, Chief Executive, London Square
London Square is working closely with Develop Croydon and Clarion Housing Group to build the new destination next to West Croydon station. The £90m scheme designed by award-winning Assael Architecture, will feature 947 m2 of commercial space, with retail and offices at street level and the new piazza opening up views to the listed St Michael and All Angels Church. Pedestrian links will also be created to the station and new shopping centre. The development forms a major part of the West Croydon Masterplan, creating a new gateway to the town centre.
