Peabody has appointed John Sisk & Son to build Phase 2 of the St John’s Hill Estate regeneration project opposite Clapham Junction train station.
The three-phase regeneration of the 1930s Peabody estate increases the number of homes from 353 to 599 homes in total.
Sisk also built Phase 1, delivering 153 award-winning homes (73 at social rent) for Peabody, with Phase 2 providing 198 all affordable homes and a new community centre.
There will be 109 social rented homes, 54 extra care homes, and 35 offered for shared ownership to help people on the housing ladder.
Designed by Hawkins/Brown architects, the new homes and community centre are due to complete in 2022.
The £87m phase also features high-quality landscaping, a wild garden, a play area, and a central public square for the community to enjoy.
Energy-efficiency measures include photovoltaic panels and a district heating system, contributing to Wandsworth’s aspiration to be a carbon neutral borough by 2030.
Around 10% of homes will be wheelchair accessible.
“As well as providing 109 homes for low-cost rent, the 54 extra care homes will provide additional support for the most vulnerable in the community – something we are very proud of,” said Tom Williamson, senior development manager, Peabody.
Ajaz Shafi, managing director of John Sisk & Son’s Southern business division, said: “We expect to be on site later this year and will be working hard to ensure we deliver this development to the highest standards in collaboration with our supply chain partners by 2022.”
