Wates Construction have won a contract to build twenty-one new council homes on the Putney Vale Estate.
Wates Construction will develop the new homes on the site of a former community centre, off Stroud Crescent, which has been reprovided elsewhere on the estate.
The scheme will consist of 11 council homes for estate residents who wish to downsize, which frees up their current homes for others, and ten self-contained supported housing properties.
It is thought to be one of the only supported living schemes being built in London by a council, and is expected to be complete in late 2018.
The development is part of a supported housing programme, running since 2009, which has seen four such developments built so far in Wandsworth.
Cllr Clare Salier, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “Wandsworth is one of only a few authorities which is building its own supported housing for vulnerable residents. In addition, this scheme is important because it enables other local households to downsize, freeing up more council housing for people.”
