Croydon Plan Taberner House Replacement

These images are the first glimpse of how plans could revitalize the southern part of Croydon center in and around the council's headquarters of Taberner House.

The masterplan sees the complete demolition of Taberner House, a 77 metre tall, 21 floor office building built in 1967 that is the third tallest building at present in the Borough of Croydon that dominates the southern part of the skyline.

It would be replaced with a new less dominant glass and steel headquarters for the council also overlooking Queens Garden of about 15 ot 16 storeys.

Also featured are several other new buildings to the immediate west of it overlooking Fell Road including a new tower on a corner position and a mid-rise building sandwiched between it and the new council headquarters.

Improvements could be made to Park Lane that separates Queens Garden from Croydon College and the Fairfields Hall plot. These two sites are also up for redevelopment and have long been expected to include a self-contained cluster of towers and landscaped public space although plans for this have been floating about since at least 2001 with little publicly visible progress.

Croydon council has chosen John Laing Developments as their partner in the venture with Gladedale handling the residential side allowing them to finally push ahead with on the project to help them realise the substantial value of their holdings in the area that are currently poorly exploited.
