Vantage Point, South Croydon

Vantage Point, South Croydon


The Oakwood Group procured funding to purchase this former car park site with outline planning consent for 24 residential apartments. We secured a revised detailed planning consent for thirty apartments, eighteen of which were sold on the open market. The ‘affordable’ element, required as part of the Section 106 Agreement, made up the remaining 12 units.

We entered into a Development Agreement with Tower Homes to deliver the affordable housing.

The building benefits from secure underground car parking, passenger lifts and remote controlled entrance shutter doors and is situated within a stone’s throw of Sanderstead Road BR Station with its excellent links into Central London and the South Coast.

Few developers presently regard the environmental performance of their buildings as a strong selling point. Homes being built today will have a lifespan of 80 to 100 years, exceeding the timeframe set by the Government for achieving significant cuts in emissions [60% cut in emissions by 2050].

Once constructed it is both difficult and expensive to make significant improvements in areas such as thermal efficiency and ventilation losses.

Vantage Point embodies a holistic approach to sustainability, with the aim being the creation of a ‘carbon neutral’ community.
