The Morello project is a £350m regeneration scheme which has already delivered 300 new homes close to East Croydon station.
In the second (current) phase, which commenced on 28.09.20, it will provide a further 456 residential units across three separate buildings.
The Morello Estate, which consists of two 25-storey towers, will be home to 338 residential apartments, whilst the adjacent Cherry Orchard Gardens, a nine-storey building, will provide 118 units for shared ownership and social rent.
In addition to the new homes, the development also includes 18,000 sq ft of retail and commercial floor space, new public realm and a new link bridge to East Croydon train station.
The Morello Estate will be funded by Mitsubishi Estate London and Menta, and Cherry Orchard Gardens will be owned and operated by Clarion Housing Association Limited, providing much needed accommodation for social rent and shared ownership occupation.

Responsible sourcing % of key building materials continues to increase. We are hoping to hit our desired 90% target in the next 4 months. We have reached over £1M Social Return on Investment in the last month. By supporting local initiatives such as Building Pathways and Employment Pathways in Croydon, we are progressing well with our Social Value commitments. We will continue to support local community projects where we can as the project progresses. We are still reaching our target to divert 98% of our waste from site. Prefabrication of our Pre-cast panels and windows offsite, is helping to ensure packaging waste is kept to a minimum onsite.
