Croydon approves second office block at Ruskin Square
Planning consent has been granted for a second office building at the £500m Ruskin Square development in Croydon.
Ruskin Square is being speculatively developed next to East Croydon station by Schroder UK Real Estate Fund in partnership with developer Stanhope.
The 3.6-hectare scheme is coming out of the ground fast with the first 17,000 m2 office block now topped out by contractor Lendlease and a first residential building due for completion this summer.
The newly consented second commercial building, larger at more than 23,000 m2 and standing 63 metres high, will deliver more office space, with retail and dining at ground floor. A BREEAM Excellent sustainability rating is targeted.
The 13-storey second office building has been designed by Make.
Stanhope development director Jason Margrave said: “With Building One’s structural steelwork due to complete within the next few weeks, the programme for the first office is firmly on track for delivery before the end of 2016 and we are delighted to have secured consent for the second building to follow close behind.”
The overall plan is for five office blocks in total.
