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 April 2021
Cherry Orchard Road
Our second tower crane at Cherry Orchard Road will be installed on the weekend of the 10th and 11th April (7am – 7pm). These works will involve complex lifting operations and will occur outside our normal working hours. We will have a late evening / early morning delivery taking place on the 8th April / 9th April. This is scheduled to deliver the tower crane sections and avoid impacts to traffic movements.
Concrete pouring for the ground floor slabs is progressing and will continue this month at Cherry Orchard Road. Set up of the slip form rig will be completed this month to construct the core of the building.
Cherry Orchard Gardens
This month, we will be coming out of the ground with the foundations and ground floor slabs being completed. We will also be progressing upwards, with the casting of concrete columns as well as beginning the Level 1 concrete floor slab.
Progress against our Buildsure targets continue to improve. Of our key building materials, concrete, metals and timber are 100% responsibly sourced. We are experiencing challenges procuring aggregates locally with recognised responsible sourcing certificates, but volumes are expected to fall in the coming months.
This month we are delivering virtual work experience through the Education Development Trust. We will be delivering to a number of local schools including Harris Aspire; Harris Professional; The Quest Academy and Norbury Manor.
