Guildhouse Rosepride secured planning permission for 113 apartments in Cairo New Road.
The 14-storey scheme is a key element in the regeneration Croydon’s historic Old Town and was designed to complement the character of the surrounding conversation area.
Cairo Place will also make a major contribution to the public realm, featuring a new plaza and including a pedestrian link towards both the new shopping centre and East Croydon station in one direction and Wandle Park in the other. There will also be a small retail element on the ground floor.
Since securing planning consent the site has been purchased for development by Optivo, a company bringing together the best of AmicusHorizon and Viridian Housing.
