A roof garden with a play area and plans for new public art are the finishing touches to Croydon’s newest tallest building.

Developers behind the part 50, party 34-storey development is expected to be ready for people to move in later this year.

The towers in College Road, next to East Croydon station, reached full height in November 2022 when the final piece was slotted into place.

Developer, Tide Construction, used a modular technique meaning blocks were fitted on top of each other around central columns.

At 158 metres tall, the 50-storey building is almost as tall as the BT Tower and will be the 32nd tallest building in the capital.

It is 20 metres taller than Ten Degrees, the black pair of towers it sits opposite built by the same company.

The taller of the two towers is made up of 817 co-living studio flats while the lower one is made up of 120 regular flats.

It is now being marketed as Enclave: Croydon, it will be managed by Outpost Management.

The latest plans lodged with Croydon Council are to meet conditions laid out in the original planning permission approved in December 2020.

The plans show sketches of a roof garden on top of the 34-storey block.

As well as plants, this shows there would be an “interactive play wall” which is made up of puzzle games for children including a rotating spiral disc, a finger maze and four in a row game as well as a telescope.

Around the edge of the roof there would be seating areas with tables and chairs.

A marketing strategy for the café, also uploaded to Croydon Council’s planning portal on Monday (February 27), said it will be ready to move into in October 2023.

Tide Construction has also submitted documents relating to public art and landscaping.

These show blue ceramic tiles, created by artist Adam Nathaniel Furman, will cover he bottom columns of the building where the walkway is.

The report said: “As the colonnade forms a major piece of public realm, the intention was to engage with a ceramicist to enhance and refine the public realm offering, delivering a considered and relevant response to the borough’s tradition of creating engaging public spaces.”
