Amazon takes fresh unit in Croydon

25th January 2023 | Jack Oliver

Schroders has announced the opening of an Amazon Fresh unit at One Ruskin Square, Croydon.

The new store occupies one of the units at the scheme adjacent to East Croydon Station and leisure destination Boxpark, and will offer a selection of product including fresh produce and bakery items.

In addition to signing Amazon Fresh, last year Schroders and development partner Stanhope secured planning consent from the council for the next office phase at Three Ruskin Square, which has been pre-let to UK Home Office, while development on Two Ruskin Square, pre-let to HM Revenue and Customs, came to a finish. Both buildings are aiming for outstanding BREEAM ratings and NABERS building performance accreditation.

Rob Cosslett, fund manager at Schroders, said: “With the addition of high quality, convenience led retail, Ruskin Square continues to deliver what modern office occupiers need from their workplaces. With growing demand to provide flexible, ESG driven working environments that deliver nearby amenities, public spaces and ease of access, Ruskin Square’s proposition is strong, and we anticipate continued interest from the occupier community as our commercial pipeline progresses.”
