Morello II regeneration project tops out at Croydon

The construction of the final phase of the £500m Morello II regeneration project adjacent to East Croydon station celebrated its topping out.

The final phase of the £500m regeneration project adjacent to East Croydon station, led by Menta, celebrated its topping out last week, delivering nearly 1,000 new and affordable homes in a set of 7 tall buildings ranging from 12 to 25 storeys designed by MAKE.

Morello topping outAdditionally, Menta will deliver over 20,000 sq ft of commercial and amenity space as part of the final phase for Mitsubishi Estates, and a comprehensive new station entrance with Public Art designed into its fabric which will transform the East Croydon Masterplan of over 3m sq ft which it instigated with the Council and partners.

Craig Marks, CEO of Menta, said: “ It is with great delight that we have reached the topping out of a further two towers for Croydon. It is a credit to our team and Sir Robert McAlpine with all the issues that COVID, Brexit and the recent Ukraine war to manage, to have achieved this final phase milestone which I believe illustrates what can be achieved when a blue chip set of delivery partners are brought together. We remain committed to completing the project as scheduled in 2023 and completing the necessary further infrastructure to enable the station and its environs to be a safe and pleasant place to live and work.”

We are very pleased to have reached the topping out milestone for Menta and their stakeholders, particularly considering the challenges presented by the Covid pandemic and the war in Ukraine. We now look forward to completing the remainder of the scheme, which will provide much needed quality accommodation and amenity space for Croydon.
