This is one sweet looking tower. Located all the way in Croydon? Must be a good impuls for Croydon's cluster.

This would be a major improvement to Croydon but will be very controversial.

It is in Greater London about 10 miles south of the city in zone 5.

1 Lansdown Road Wins Approval

1 Landsdowne Road in Croydon has been approved by the local council's planning committee.



Having previously been called the Odalisk until it was rebranded, the CZWG skyscraper will be the tallest building in the borough of Croydon on the outskirts of south London if built with a height 198.6 metres and 51 floors above ground.

Incidentally, this height will also make the main tower of the scheme the tallest residential building in the United Kingdom beating the currently under construction St George Wharf in Vauxhall.

As well as the 397 apartments, each of which comes with its very own internal wintergarden (of a varying size depending on the budget the occupier has), there will be a 217 room hotel overlooking Wellesley Road that could well have a top floor restaurant, space for offices, and ground floor retail.

1 Lansdowne Road is being developed by Guildhouse-Rosepride LLP, who are something of an unknown quantity when it comes to constructing tall buildings. Nonetheless, with Piers Gough's firm CZWG on board and a distinctive design boasting decorative curves on its façade, they do have a product to mark them out from the bland.

I don't know if it's already fully approved.
