As far as new and approved proposals it is but as far as actual construction its tepid at best.

There's probably a dozen towers over 25 approved but nothings really started since Saffron SQ Tower was completed.

Compare and contrast to the amount of new development going up in places not ni central London like Stratford, E&C, Vauxhall, Hammersmith and the pace of development in Croydon is quite poor.

With Westfield not starting demo until this time next year and Fairfields hall only slowly progressing the next year or so will be make or break for Croydon.

That looks quite nice in the rendering, but I have a feeling it will be ugly in reality.

Its interesting that this design appears like a 1960s design, very rectangular blocks, a single storey podium on square columns, with an expressed concrete type frame and infill panels/transoms, presumably slicker in detail and massing than would normally be built in the 60s. This is a far cry from the curvacious glazed point towers with accent details so often built today.

That said, its a pity from an urban design perspective to see that in common with many 60s residential projects, that the tall blocks turn their rather bland sides to the public streets, that the street experience is unlikely to be complimentary to street life, that the "street wall" is not reinforced - many common design disappointments of 60s developments.

The assymetric tall and medium towers works pretty well in terms of massing, though perhaps one much taller tower and one much shorter adjacent secondary building fronting the street may work better urbanistically.

Plans for two interlinked buildings of 30 and 40 storeys at 101 George Street are at a formative stage.

The new plans include 490 residential units.

Is this on the site of where the Suffolk House tower (from 8-10 years back) was meant to be?

No, I think Suffolk house was on the corner of George Street and Wellesley Road. This is further up George Street, almost opposite East Croydon station.

Firstly given the height for a modular build scheme, this could be a watershed moment for other schemes and i'm intrigued by the cladding its akin to the Allison Brooks scheme in Greenwich Peninsula. Finally this will be a completely PRS scheme, which can only be a good thing right?

The 44fl bit is around 130m AGL, but don't pin me down on that.

This scheme is clad in Terracotta, the colour green is a hint to the green granite used on Fairfield Halls.

Looks like this is now 44 and 38 storeys with 546 homes. Tide Construction plan to use modular construction like they did with Apex House in Wembley. Greystar are in talks to forward fund the project.
