The Nestlé Tower (or St George's House) is a skyscraper located in Croydon, United Kingdom occupied by the multinational food and consumer goods company Nestlé S.A. as their UK headquarters (the world headquarters being in Vevey, Switzerland). Nestlé is the single most powerful company to have headquarters in Croydon, however until 2009 this was AIG who relocated from the No.1 Croydon that year. It was designed by architects Ronald Ward and Partners, who later designed Millbank Tower, and it was completed in 1964. The site is on the 'urban motorway' of Wellesley Road above the Croydon Underpass and next to Croydon Council's offices in Taberner House, Croydon College, and the theatre and performance space of the Fairfield Halls and the Ashcroft Theatre. In recent years, the development of tall buildings has been encouraged in the London Plan, which will lead to the erection of new skyscrapers over the next few years as London goes through a high-rise boom. This means that more skyscrapers including the planned Wellesley Square will go up around the town. As part of the Park Place development, the tower is part of the Croydon Vision 2020 regeneration plan for the London Borough of Croydon to add to its goal of being London's Third City.
