What Makes Croydon Akin To A City In Its Own Right?

Real Estate,Business

Croydon – home of the elegant 20-storey ISLAND development – may technically be ‘only’ a large town, but it’s difficult to deny that it has the energy, dynamism and forward-thinking mindset of many of the UK’s finest cities. Indeed, with more than 380,000 people estimated to live in the borough, it is also more populous than many of the country’s settlements that are officially cities.

Having first applied to be a city in 1954, Croydon has bid for the status on three more occasions since, in 2000, 2002 and 2012. But what are the characteristics of the town that serve to make it a true city in all but name?

Transport connections unrivalled by almost anywhere else

Even by London standards, the extent and efficiency of Croydon’s transport links is stellar. The borough’s railway stations, for example, include both West Croydon and East Croydon station, the latter just a six-minute walk from ISLAND.

Croydon is also the hub for the three-line Tram link tram network, while many of London’s buses also operate in and around Croydon, largely serving West Croydon bus station next to the railway station and tram stop.

An astounding cultural and recreational offer

One of the most surprising things about Croydon in 2018 for many of those who may not have visited the town in recent years is the wealth of fun and interesting things to do, even before the close proximity to London’s own staggering assortment of attractions and activities is considered.

From the currently under-refurbishment Fairfield Halls arts centre and the Croydon Clock tower complex housing a sophisticated library and the Museum of Croydon, right through to the hip BOXPARK and all manner of bars, cafes and restaurants, Croydon has it all from a recreational perspective. There’s simply no need to go anywhere else to while away the hours in style.

Increasingly desirable and state-of-the-art residential property

While Croydon – a part of London with a once deeply unglamorous image – is still a work in progress, it’s for this very reason that those who are seeking affordable, but sophisticated property in an up-and-coming part of the capital are urged to buy now, rather than later.

This advice applies especially strongly given that property in the area is becoming higher in quality as the surrounding area becomes more sought-after as a place to live. It is a trend that will inevitably push up prices over time, including of ISLAND’s Penthouse Apartment In London.

You may have noticed, for example, the recent Croydon Advertiser piece reporting that one of our penthouses in Croydonis currently on the market for £1.35 million!

Such a price may seem very high to those still familiar with the area’s less affluent past, but with this property being one of only about four or five penthouses in Croydon borough – as estimated by Develop Croydon chairman Richard Plant – the price is arguably still very reasonable.

After all, as Plant himself has observed: “Croydon is certainly getting more and more expensive to live in, and this is as a result of other new developments in the borough and Croydon simply being a more desirable place to live in than it used to be.

“Certainly, if you put this flat in one of the inner London boroughs, you would be looking at a much higher price”.

For reasons like the above and so many more, we reckon that Croydon is well worth being regarded as a city in all but name! So why not contact us today to ask us about the few remaining available apartments and penthouses in Croydon that make up our prestigious tower?
