Brick by Brick, the development company set up by Croydon Council, has submitted plans for a five-building development in Croydon.
The Fairfield Homes development is mixed-use that will create 421 new homes above office, retail and leisure space in Croydon town centre.
Housing will range from studio flats to three-bedroom apartments alongside 16,000 sq ft of commercial space.
The new planning application builds on the already granted 2017 planning consent given to the developer, almost doubling the 218 homes and increasing the affordable provision housing per habitable room from 18 to 20 per cent.
The buildings will range from seven to 29 storeys, and if approved will sit on the 0.8 hectare Fairfield Homes site adjacent to the Fairfield Halls arts centre.
The halls reopened earlier this month after undergoing a £42m refurbishment led by Brick by Brick.
Brick by Brick chief executive Colm Lacey said: “We have carried out extensive demolition and enabling works on the site and we look forward to continuing this most exciting and vitally important project.”
Stuart Cade, from MICA Architects who worked on the plans, said: “The masterplan provides a significant number of homes, with the five distinct blocks carefully designed to maximise daylight and to frame the rich new landscaping.”
