|:||No. 1 Croydon (formerly the NLA Tower, and colloquially the 50p Building, the Weddingcake or the Threepenny bit building, due to its resemblance to a number of threepence coins stacked on top of each other). It has 24 storeys and is 82 m high. 'NLA' stood for 'Noble Lowndes Annuities'. It was one of many new buildings constructed in the growing town of Croydon in the 1960s.|
