BPTW gets go-ahead for Croydon tower

BPTW's Cambridge House plans for Wellesley Road in Croydon

26-storey Cambridge House block will deliver 92 new homes

BPTW Partnership has finalised its planning permission for a 26-storey residential tower on one of Croydon’s principal streets.

Its Cambridge House proposals, drawn up for affordable housing provider Notting Hill Genesis, will deliver 92 new apartments on the site of a four-storey office building on Wellesley Road.

Practice director Chris Bath said the scheme – which completed its section 106 planning obligation agreement last month and received its finalised decision notice – had been designed to be respectful of the “existing modernist vernacular” evident in central Croydon.
