Russell Hill Planning Success

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

MDR are proud to announce another successful planning determination in the London Borough of Croydon. The scheme at 19-21 Russell Hill sought approval for the demolition of two existing two storey residential detached houses and the construction of 22 new residential units, formed of a mix of flats and houses, creating much needed space for individuals, couples and families. A large Registered Provider will develop the project over the coming 18/24-month programme with the aim of expanding their Croydon presence.

The recent decision extends MDRs exemplar planning track record within the Borough, which has seen the positive determination of hundreds of units over the last twelve moths. MDR are currently working on a large portfolio of circa 1200 further units at feasibility, pre-app and planning stages within Croydon.

Brighton and Cannes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With two of the largest events of the year within the space of two weeks, this is a very busy time for MDR and architectural practices in general. Starting with CIH Brighton, MDR co-hosted an afternoon tea party with Buxtons at the Grand Hotel. It was great to see so many new and familiar faces and we thank everyone who attended.

With MIPIM still in full swing, our directors are enjoying sunny Cannes and can add another successful event to their list! There was a fantastic turn out to the co-hotsed networking breakfast with Keepmoat. We hope that everyone who attended enjoyed the quayside breakfast. Spread over four days, MIPIM has provided a great opportunity to meet inspiring professionals within the property industry and has generated some very promising new relationships.
