Amro enters JV with NTT UD Europe to fund The Rex

We’re delighted to announce that Amro Partners and NTT UD Europe (NTT UDE), a subsidiary of a Japanese real estate developer NTT Urban Development, have formed a joint venture partnership to fund the development of The Rex co-living project in London.


The £80M GDV project located directly opposite Kingston train station represents NTTUDE’s first foray into the UK residential market and the first joint venture between the two parties. The project will deliver 210 co-living units and will be the first co-living building in the UK to achieve BREEAM Outstanding status in addition to the targeted Fitwel 3*, WiredScore Platinum and ActiveScore Platinum ratings.


The project will see part of the existing substructure and superstructure retained to maximise embodied carbon reuse, making it one of Europe’s most sustainable buildings on completion in January 2025.

Amro pledges support to Croydon’s Legacy Youth Zone

Amro Partners has embarked on a three-year partnership with Croydon youth charity, Legacy Youth Zone.

As a Gold Supporter, pledging support over three years, we will help fund the charity’s activities at its multi-purpose facility and engage young people in the borough with the redevelopment of the Croydon Park Hotel, including the creation of dedicated community spaces.

Legacy Youth Zone is an easily accessible, state-of-the-art facility located in the centre of Croydon, providing local young people with the space and opportunity to discover their full potential. They are supported in a wide range of skills-based activities and new experiences, supported by expert Youth Workers, including boxing, climbing, cooking, music and performing arts. The charity costs £1.5 million each year to run, which is funded through voluntary donations, business partnerships, local trusts and fundraising activities.

At a workshop earlier this month hosted by Amro Partners and HTA Architects, design ideas were presented to Legacy members who provided feedback on features they liked and disliked, proposed names for the building and ideas for maximising use of the 83 sqm shared community space on Altyre Road, as part of a lasting legacy for local people. The sustainability theme proved popular and ‘Botanical House’ was chosen as the new name for the project, which is currently awaiting planning approval.
