“These compact starter homes are a superb innovation and will provide local people with a new affordable housing option in the heart of Wandsworth Town centre. I’m sure they will be a popular choice with local residents who can’t afford to buy on the open market and we hope to see more schemes like this developed in the years ahead.
“The building’s design is equally impressive, particularly the green ceramic cladding system which will be another first for Wandsworth. The emphasis on creating such high-quality communal areas is another welcome innovation.”
