Croydon’s iconic 1960’s landmark Leon House, situated in the heart of the town’s restaurant quarter, is sponsoring the 2017 Croydon Food and Music Festival this June (25th).
The 21 storey former offices development is now being transformed by FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) into a luxury 263 executive apartment complex with floor to ceiling windows affording panoramic views over London taking in Canary Wharf, The Gherkin and Wembley Stadium to the North and Surrey and the North Downs to the South.
When completed, the building will feature a stunning 21st floor Sky Lounge with roof gardens available exclusively for residents who will also have membership of Club Leon, an in-house members’ club offering exclusive privileges and access to all facilities including meeting rooms and the grand open space of the foyer. This reception space will also feature a rediscovered sculpture by renowned artist William Mitchell uncovered during redevelopment work. Mitchell’s ‘Totem Pole’ sculpture will be given pride of place in the luxurious Leon House foyer.
Comments FIREM’s Associate Development Director Mark Adams: “We are delighted to be the Festival’s headline sponsor and to play our part in celebrating all that is best in this vibrant area. Last year’s festival attracted over 12,000 visitors who enjoyed fantastic food and drink, live music on three stages and street entertainers.
“Leon House is acknowledged to be one of the finest examples of Croydon’s modernist 1960’s architecture and is now set to become a new and unique residential opportunity in a popular area with the town’s young creative tech and professional community who are looking for homes designed to London standards.”
Apartments at Leon House will be released for sale in September through Countrywide Residential Developments with completion dates scheduled between April and August 2018.
