Whitgift Centre entrance, Wellesley Road, Croydon
Whitgift Centre entrance, Wellesley Road, Croydon
This is one of several entrances to this huge shopping centre. The entrance looks almost art deco in style but the centre is very modern. Despite that fact it is due to be redeveloped starting this year (2018). The date has been postponed several times already. The centre has a surprising number of empty units, particularly in the more far flung corners, so possibly it is too big for today's needs, particularly with the rise of online shopping and recent closures of some well known retail chains. How redevelopment will improve this situation remains to be seen.
