aka the Toby Jug site, covered extensively in http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1827296&page=3

good to see they're bringing back that bright orangeyred brick so beloved from the provincial business parks of the 80s and 90s. exactly what everyone was clamouring for

It does seem like a 21st century take on soviet/ early 20th century social housing with cut and paste of identical building in a neat order. I'm guessing the developer has OCD married with 'classical' tastes.

Building so close to the A3 is a mistake. There really should be a deeper green wooded barrier to this very busy polluted road I'm very surprised that this opportunity has not been exploited. I don't mind the mansion block style and formal arrangement of buildings, it functional and logical. I'm just not sure about the design.
Personally I would love this part of the A3 to go underground, the opportunity to make a green corridor along this stretch would do wonders for this part of London.

For those unaware, Tolworth station is on the Chessington South branch and currently gets just 2tph to Waterloo, 1tph in the evening. It is also a key branch in Crossrail 2 planning, because of the potential to build on the green fields south of Chessington. However, Crossrail 2 are only planning 4tph on the branch, which is still a pathetic frequency. And with 50,000 new houses on the green belt at the end of the branch, buying a flat here may involve a long stand to central London in crowded conditions.
