Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has given the green light for the £1.4 billion scheme to regenerate the Whitgift Centre in Croydon.
The redevelopment will be delivered by the Croydon Partnership, a joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "Today marks a crucial step forward in the regeneration of Croydon town centre. This development will play a key role in unlocking the borough’s potential and is set to deliver huge economic benefits to residents and businesses in the borough."
Upon completion, the project will create 1,000 homes, 7,000 jobs and around 46,451sq m of new shops and restaurants. Croydon residents will also benefit from new leisure facilities and public spaces.
Contacted by Sitematch, Croydon Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for homes, regeneration and planning, Councillor Alison Butler, said: "I'm delighted another milestone in this project has been reached and the Mayor of London has approved the Croydon Partnership's plans. The redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre will transform Croydon town centre and today's green light brings us a step closer to the works getting under way.”
The Croydon Council will be at the next Sitematch London event on 8 February 2018, to discuss development opportunities with developers and investors. If you'd like to attend the event and meet the council, contact Josie Brewer on 020 7978 6840.
