The new building comprises three main elements. The main section fronts London Road and rises to six-storeys; on Bensham Road, it steps down to three-storeys to blend in with adjacent properties. The striking glass clad centrepiece is an eight-storey block at the corner of the two roads, creating a dramatic and elegant landmark for the town. Furthermore, there is a large undercroft car park on the ground floor.

In addition to providing much needed affordable homes for the residents of Croydon, the development creates a landmark building and new public space contributing to on going and extensive regeneration of the town.
