Croydon has a wide variety of buildings mainly from post-war through to modern. Much of the modern architecture in the borough is centred on the commercial centre of Croydon with much of the Victorian designs spread out on both the northern and southern corridors of the borough. Many former warehouses and factories have been converted for other uses changing the external appearance of Croydon erratically. An interesting facet of the architecture of Croydon and several other large towns in England at the moment, was noted by the Guardian Unlimited website. It said that councils, including Croydon, are building more and more skyscrapers as part of a flashy regeneration fever that wont last. Examples of this upcoming architecture can be easily found to the centre of the borough in the form of the Croydon Gateway scheme and the Cherry Orchard Road Towers.
