Croydon has a spring in its step these days with several key town centre projects getting approval, including — after a 10-year wrangle — a proposed  £1 billion Westfield shopping mall.

For now at least, the town appears to be rather undervalued in property terms. But with its commercial heart getting sorted, residential developers are stepping forward. Morello Quarter, pictured, is the latest launch, with 290 apartments next door to East Croydon train station. The outer London transport hub is one of the best connected. There are 27 trains an hour to the centre, with London Bridge and Victoria 15 minutes away, and a through-the-night service running from Victoria to Gatwick airport.
Developers are convinced there is a gap in the market for designer flats at a price young professionals can afford, especially as Croydon’s makeover is already enticing tenants and buyers from Clapham and Streatham. Morello Quarter has landscaped gardens, an on-site gym, café and concierge-staffed reception. From £259,995. Call Redrow Homes on 020 3305 5541.
