This was originally the Croydon Union Workhouse, designed in 1865-66 by John Berney. It was heavily damaged in the Second World War leaving just this Italianate tower (with a pyramid roof underneath the scaffolding) and a small section of the facade below. Grade II listed.
The area around it is being developed for housing and happily it looks as if the tower is being renovated. Or perhaps converted into a very tall and narrow bijou apartment.
Three months later it looked like this: TQ3267 : Croydon Workhouse - conversion
