Skillcrown completes £25 million property project in Croydon

Here at Skillcrown, we are delighted to announce we have successfully completed a major development of 113 new homes in Croydon’s historic old town.

Situated on Cairo New Road, Cairo Apartments is a contemporary collection of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Delivered to a high specification, the 14-storey building with a commercial unit on the ground floor, boasts of modern design with a focus on versatility, style and comfort. The new homes feature open-plan living areas to maximise space and light, sleek finishes and balconies to selected apartments, where residents can enjoy panoramic views of the London skyline. Additionally, the fourth floor houses a roof garden for use by all residents, as well as a communal area and children’s play area.

The affordable housing scheme is surrounded by a vibrant community and is perfectly served by the popular tram link and nearby Croydon stations, providing easy access to Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge. Residents are within walking distance from an array of schools and the town centre, which offers a great selection of bars, restaurants and entertainments venues.

“We are proud of Skillcrown’s latest addition to our product portfolio. Through these challenging times, the team have navigated exceptionally well and have achieved an excellent finish, building on existing success”, said Salik Osman, Managing Director at Skillcrown. Salik added, “Croydon Borough has one of the biggest London housing targets with an expected growth of 30,000 homes by 2029. Cairo Apartments is a fantastic addition to the housing market and we are pleased to be part of Croydon’s regeneration programme”.

Construction of the development commenced in 2018 which previously housed a 1960s warehouse and was most recently used by a church group. With construction now complete, the affordable housing scheme is ready for families, professionals and those wanting to get onto the property ladder. With a space for a retail unit on the ground floor, the mixed-use development will provide new jobs and significant boost to the local economy.
