The Leader of Wandsworth Council, Cllr Ravi Govindia, visited Prince of Wales Drive in June, to celebrate the completion of the site's first affordable homes.
The 'topping out' ceremony represents a significant milestone for the emerging neighbourhood, with 229 new affordable homes ready for Wandsworth residents.
Prince of Wales Drive is transforming a five-acre former gasworks in Battersea, with more than 900 new homes set amongst a network of public squares and footpaths that will reconnect this industrial site with the surrounding community.
More than half the site is dedicated to green open space and public realm, reflecting St William's landscape-led ethos.
Cllr Ravi Govindia, Leader of London Borough of Wandsworth, said:
"After a brief pause, regeneration of Nine Elms has resumed. I am delighted to welcome a further delivery of affordable housing and am pleased that almost a quarter of this development will be homes at affordable rent levels or for shared ownership.
"We want local families and residents to have a decent, affordable place to live with good transport links and space for leisure nearby. Time spent in lockdown has shown us how important green space is for our wellbeing, so it's good to see that when these homes open in 2022 residents will have access to new gardens as well as nearby Battersea Park and the newly re-opened riverside path."
Sean Ellis, Chairman of St William said: "This is a key milestone in delivering Prince of Wales Drive and the transformation of one of Battersea's former industrial landmarks into a thriving new community. The topping out of two new residential buildings celebrates the first affordable homes in this new Zone 1 neighbourhood and demonstrates good quality partnerships with the London Borough of Wandsworth and Clarion Housing, to deliver homes across a range of tenures of the highest calibre."
