The iconic Leon House in the heart of Croydon’s Restaurant Quarter is the headline sponsor of the 2017 Croydon Food and Music Festival on June 25.

One of the finest examples of the borough’s modernist 1960s architecture, the 21 storey Leon House is currently being redeveloped by FI Real Estate Management to create 263 luxury executive apartments.

Built to London design standards, Leon offers spacious, luxury specification apartments, with floor to ceiling windows which enjoy panoramic views of London, taking in Canary Wharf, The Gherkin and Wembley Stadium to the north, or Surrey and the North Downs to the south.

The completed building in Croydon’s South End will feature a stunning 21st floor Sky Lounge and roof garden, which will be available exclusively for residents. Occupants will also be part 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.

Originally designed by architects Tribich, Liefer & Starkin, Leon House is a shining example of sixties architecture. The reception area boasts a sculpture by renowned artist William Mitchell, famous for his huge concrete murals, which was uncovered during redevelopment work. Mitchell’s ‘totem pole’ sculpture will be given pride of place in the luxurious new Leon House foyer.

“Leon House is set to become one of the landmark properties within the highly desirable Croydon regeneration area,” said Mark Adams, Associate Development Director of FI Real Estate Management.

“Right in the heart of the Restaurant Quarter, the building will be an integral part of an area, which is extremely popular with Croydon’s young creative tech and professional community. FI Real Estate Management is proud to have Leon House as headline sponsor of a festival which celebrates all that’s best in this vibrant area.”

Close to East Croydon station with fast links to Central London – the journey time from East Croydon to London Victoria is 16 minutes. Leon House apartments will be released for sale in September through Countrywide Residential Developments. The completion dates are scheduled between April and August 2018.
