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.

Schedule of Work July 2021
Cherry Orchard Road
At the Cherry Orchard Road site, the main retail and entrance area concrete works are close to completion, allowing the install of the precast finished brickwork panels. The main residential ‘core’ of apartment floors are now being cast up the main structure.
Over the coming month the large safety screens that encompass the working levels will be delivered and lifted up onto the structure to provide full protection on the working levels for the operatives and to protect the nearby rail and residential properties.
Cherry Orchard Gardens
For the Cherry Orchard Garden site, we will be progressing onwards with the concrete superstructure. This is now up to level 4 and will continue upwards over the next month.
The scaffolding to facilitate the install of the brickwork has also begun, with the install of the scaffold gantry along Cherry Orchard Road to protect the footpath and provide a safe walkway progressing well.
The next phase of work to begin during this month will be the facade works, with the metal framing and initial brickwork footing. This month will also see the initial install of a Hoist on the 17th July.
Responsible sourcing of our key building materials is an important measure in reducing environmental impacts and eradicating modern slavery. We recognise responsible sourced products through recognised certification schemes. We are continuing to improve this metric and to date 71% of key building materials used in the development has been procured from certified suppliers.
Where waste is unavoidable, we are ensuring it is recoverable and recyclable and key materials are not lost to landfill. We have diverted 99% of our construction waste from landfill to date.
Later this month we are looking forward to hosting students from the Southborough High School, Surbiton in Surrey to the development. Students will be given a tour of the sight and career talks and presentations from the site team. The project is looking to contribute a Social Return on Investment, which we measure with our Social Value Calculator.
