Posted on by Rob Powell

CONSTRUCTION work has got under way at a big new office development in Croydon.

The Renaissance aims to deliver 100,000 sq ft of Grade A office space close to East Croydon railway station.

Up to 1100 staff could work at the £35 million office building once it has been completed next August.

Work started on the site in Dingwall Road on June 11th with the Mayor of Croydon, Cllr Eddy Arram, in attendance for the breaking of the ground.

Renaissance, designed by Gary McCarthy at Andrew Lett Architects, is aiming for a BREEAM 2011 ‘Excellent’ rating.

Mark Glatman, Chief Executive of the Abstract Group which is behind the project, commented: “We are delighted to confirm our move to start construction in such a short time scale, since our purchase on 6 January and achieving planning consent on 30 March.

“Renaissance is Croydon’s first speculative commercial office development in 20 years and starting construction so quickly underlines Abstract‘s commitment and confidence in the regeneration of Croydon. We are confident that Renaissance will let at an early stage given the value for money package on offer of low rent, superb quality and the location of the building.”
