Peabody is making significant progress on the construction of an additional 230 homes at Portabello Square, with 119 affordable homes another step closer for the community.

The not-for-profit housing association held a 'topping out' ceremony on Thursday 23 November with lead Contractor Bouygues UK. The event marked the completion of the roof on Phase 2b.

The ongoing regeneration of Wornington Green will ultimately provide more than one thousand homes.

In this second phase, Peabody is building 230 new homes including apartments, duplexes, and mews houses. Of these, 119 are affordable, with 108 social rent homes for existing residents

on the estate at their current rent levels. The remaining homes are market sale, to fund the provision of social homes in one of London’s priciest post codes.

The first residents will move into the new homes in autumn 2024. Many already lived on the estate with their families and are adults who have now been given their own separate tenancies.

All homes will be powered by air source heat pumps, helping to reduce CO2 emissions while providing a more energy efficient system for residents and reducing their energy bills. The project also includes 5,000 sq. foot of brand-new commercial space.

Construction contractor Bouygues UK will deliver the new Peabody homes alongside a huge social value program that is already benefitting the community.
