The site comprised a large plot of land to the south of Coulsdon Town Station which was identified as an opportunity site in Croydon’s Masterplan and benefited from an extant planning permission for a food retail store comprising 5,446m2 Gross Floor Area of Class A1 retail floorspace and with a net sales area of 2,837m2, with residential units on the uppermost levels.
We worked in conjunction with the local authority and their Masterplanning team as a stakeholder in promoting a residential bias for the site.
Our findings underpinned a proposal to provide a mix of retail and residential uses with provision of a new public space to Brighton Road and enhanced pedestrian routes to the station.
Permission was granted in September 2012 for a two to seven storey structure comprised of 350m2 Class A1/A2/A3 retail space and 184m2 of A1/A2/B1/D1/D2 space and 94 residential units.
The scheme was delivered in conjunction with one of our strategic housing association partners, with the market sale elements being funded in part by National Westminster Bank Plc.
