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 January 2021
Cherry Orchard Road
Piling works are scheduled for completion on week commencing the 4th January. When completed we will move the piling rig from the site to the Cherry Orchard Garden site. To avoid disruption to local traffic, this will take place at 5:00am on the 9th January.
Substructure and foundation works will continue during January to the South Tower, with the aim to begin the ground floor slab. This will involve cutting the pile caps to formation level and poring concrete for the foundations, as well as any associated drainage and utility works. Further substructure works will include excavating and concrete works the South Tower attenuation tank and Substation.
For the North tower, the pile caps installed by the piling rig will be cut to ground level, and concrete works associated with the ground floor slab. Excavation and installation of drainage is also scheduled this month. Construction of a further tower crane (TC2) base will start at the north tower.
Cherry Orchard Gardens
Enabling activities will continue this month. We are expected to have the sewer diversion onsite completed this month, and the new connection for the site installed.
CFA piling will start on site, once the machine has been mobilised from the Cherry Orchard Road site. As piling progress and pile caps start to become complete, the caps will be cut to ground level.
Oval road will be closed at the Cherry Orchard road junction from Monday 18th January to Friday 12th February. This is to facilitate utility connections for the development.
