Stanhope and Schroders have planning permission for a mixed use office and residential scheme
to redevelop the 9 acre Ruskin Square site adjacent to East Croydon Station.

The Ruskin Square masterplan has been designed by Foster + Partners with AHMM designing the residential elements. It has been produced in collaboration with Croydon Council and as part of the Croydon Opportunity Area Planning Framework following comprehensive public consultation. It will open up 9 acres of central Croydon that has not been previously accessible and include a new home for the Warehouse Theatre, high quality restaurants and shops to serve the local community.

The scheme complements the East Croydon Masterplan, led by Croydon Council, which will deliver £20m of improvements to the Station, principally a new bridge that will be delivered in late 2013 providing a new second Station entrance providing a new direct route connecting East Croydon Station with the town centre through the site, for both passengers to the trains and for movement across the railway tracks. This new route will be used every day by approximately 20,000 people.

A first phase of housing could be started to coincide with the expected opening date of the new footbridge in 2013. Stanhope and Schroders will be actively marketing the office accommodation as the economy recovers from recession but the offices will not be commenced speculatively.

We will remain in our present building until the new theatre is built -
your continued support is critical to our future…
