Twin towers, one 38 stories and the other 44 stories, housing rental apartments are now open for tenants in South London proving once again that modular construction can deliver almost any housing project you can design.
The UK's HTA Design's modular tower in Croydon, south London – now the world's tallest modular residential building – has completed with apartments available to rent. It was built for their client Greystar and Henderson Park.
101 George Street is two towers, a 38-story and a 44-story, scaling 442 feet and providing 546 new homes which was designed specifically for rent and will be professionally managed onsite offering residents a 24/7 service.
All homes will benefit from access to shared amenities including a podium garden, rooftop gardens at the top of each tower, panoramic viewing walkway, gyms, residents lounge and private dining/event rooms. The building will be part 44 and part 38 stories and will be built using offsite technology.

The modules were then stacked on top of each other on-site. Because carbon emissions are reduced through offsite manufacture, it is hoped the homes’ construction will use up to 67 percent less energy than traditional builds.
Other amenities include a rooftop gym, sky lounge, co-working space, rooftop and ground-level terraces, private dining room, pet spa, games lounge and cinema room.
The building will be made from nearly 1500 modules that are manufactured and installed by Vision Modular Systems from their purpose-built manufacturing facility in Bedford, where the modules were completed before being transported to the site.
