New photos show the progress made in transforming disused land in Thamesmead into 66 affordable homes.

Once construction is completed, The Reach site in Thames Reach will form part of Greenwich's Housing Zone, which will bring more than 1,800 new homes and jobs to Plumstead and West Thamesmead.

The Mayor of London's Housing Zone scheme plans to create 30 developments across London with £600 million funding to build 75,000 new homes.

The curved building will share a green courtyard with leisure facilities as well as 375 square metres of commercial space.

The development managed by Peabody housing association sits next to the Princess Alice pub and a parade of shops in Battery Road.

Teresa Pearce, MP for Erith and Thamesmead, said: "With Greenwich Council and the Mayor of London, Peabody is bringing disused, vacant land back into use and providing much-needed new social rented homes for people in Thamesmead.

"I'm pleased to see parking and cycling provision, homes that are wheelchair adaptable, and hopefully a nursery or other important service for local people on the ground floor.

"Close to the river and to Plumstead station, these homes will make a great addition to the neighbourhood."

The development will provide one, two and three-bedroom homes when completed, and is expected to be ready to move into by summer 2019.
