The site includes the former Nestle Tower (also known as St George’s House), St George’s Walk and the Grade II listed Segas House. The site is immediately opposite the Town Hall and the Queen’s Gardens on Katharine Street. Fairfield Halls and Croydon College are across Park Lane from St George’s House and Segas House.

Queen’s Square is one of the most important development sites in Croydon town centre and has the potential to link the cultural quarter around Fairfield Halls, the civic quarter around the Town Hall, the shopping and leisure quarter along the High Street and the emerging Westfield development to be delivered by the Croydon Partnership.  A number of previous proposals for the site have been considered historically however none of these proposals were ever delivered.

Plan

R&F Properties purchased the site in 2017 and has since been considering how to bring forward the site to best contribute to the town centre’s renaissance.  In summary:

Plan
St George’s House (Phase 1) involves the conversion of the former Nestle Tower to create 290 new homes. Main works for the site commenced in August 2019. More information is being provided to neighbouring businesses as the work continues.  For any enquires regarding sales please contact: www.sales@queens-sq.com
Plan
Queen’s Square (Phase 2) involves the redevelopment of most of the site to provide a new town square opposite the Town Hall, along with a range of commercial uses, which will include shops, restaurants, offices and other workspaces, on the ground floor with new homes above.
Plan
Croydon Council granted permission for demolition works in September 2018 in order to allow for the construction of Phase 2 to begin as quickly as possible. These works were completed in September 2019.
Plan
The emerging scheme for Phase 2 is currently being discussed with Croydon Council and wider stakeholders with planning submission anticipated towards the end of 2019.
