Nobody Wants To Buy Croydon Skyscraper Flat

Nobody wants to buy a luxury flat near the top of Croydon’s impressive new Saffron Tower, it is claimed.

London Live says that the luxury three bedroomed flat on the 38th floor of the 43 storey skyscraper tower, which is being offered at £825,000, is unsold three years after it first went on the market and even though the building was completed in 2018.

London Live ponders on whether, in a town which has a housing shortage, it is the asking price or a fear of heights that is putting prospective buyers off.

The truth of the matter is, probably, that while such a flat would sell like hot cakes in central London  – or even central Birmingham or Manchester – it is still viewed as an adventurous proposition for the Croydon market. While the town is presently undergoing a lot of regeneration – and has even been dubbed the ‘Concrete Catalonia’ – it has some way to go before it is seen as a desirable city living location.
