That looks stunning... I counted 50 floors on that. Must be at least 200m. And they've hinted at going even taller.

Ages is the word! I'm sure there was a sign in the late 80s / early 90s saying land aquired for an exciting new development. It was in use as a car park for a while.

Well you're in luck...

I keep all the Croydon developments, from pre-planning to u/c, in the handy picture below. Also included is Suffolk House, which may or may not have something done to it in the future.

There is a midrise building having a hight increase one road further south of Leon House which is just visible at the bottom left of your pic!

Croydon Gateway Tower | 155m is approved!

Got any more info about the Hamilton Lunar and Apollo Redevelopment (160m) ?

Ah yes, crap. I don't know where I got 94m from... I'm sure it somewhere . But 61m makes more sense and is corroborated by Emporis, and SNUK.

You sure Croydon Gateway is approved? I thought they were still deciding between the two proposals

And I've no more information beyond what londonlad has said about the Hamilton development. 160m is a guesstimate based on the drawing they placed in the newspaper.

Apparently Croydon Gateway has been approved but there's an appeal.

this is correct. im not sure of the precise status, last thing i heard the council had approved one and were trying to CPO parts of the site but the developer who had lost (thats the foster scheme) was going through legal hoops to try and stop it. its all being settled in the courts.

I think once some of these Croydon buildings get some momentum going we should have our own Croydon forum?

Croydon would need about 30+ towers to have its own forum...
