The £220m Botanical House rental flats scheme will deliver nearly 450 homes – a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments at the Altyre Road site.
Botanical House will be the first residential building in Croydon to achieve the highest possible sustainability standards – including BREEAM ‘Outstanding rating, Fitwel3* certification and WiredScore Platinum.
With a retrofit first approach, the basement and ground floor slab of the original hotel building will be retained to save embodied carbon and minimise demolition and subsequent waste on site.
Construction at Botanical House will start in 2024, with the development scheduled to complete and open in 2027.
HTA Design is the architect for the tower and mansion block, which will have similar facades, while the crown of each building will have its own identity. Shelly & Counch is the M&E consultant for the project
