Croydon is already one of Europe’s largest commercial centres, but the completion of Ruskin Square, with up to 1,250,000 sq ft of new, grade A office space, 625 contemporary new homes and 100,000 sq ft of retail, cafés and restaurants will take the area to a whole new level.
HM Revenue and Customs has signed to occupy One Ruskin Square, the first office building of the scheme to be completed. The landmark letting of the entire building sees the government department take 180,000 sq ft of prime office accommodation at the heart of a fast evolving business hub in south London. Designed by award-winning architecture firm shedkm, One Ruskin Square comprises nine floors of offices on floorplates of approximately 20,000 sq ft.
Outline consent granted for the whole scheme. Detailed planning consent granted for Building Two.
