Enormous Crocus Approved

As noted on this site in February, Croydon Council have given Berkeley Homes the green light to build a £140M 44-storey tower in Croydon.

The development at Wellesley Square will include a total of 739 flats built across five blocks.

However, Property Week reports that the tower, designed by Rolfe Judd architects, has been designed to resemble a crocus. Seemingly, the name 'Croydon' was derived from the Latin for crocus and valley.
