John Sisk & Son to build £87m second phase of St John’s Hill Estate upgrade

Peabody has appointed John Sisk & Son to build the £87m second phase of the St John’s Hill Estate regeneration project opposite Clapham Junction train station.

The three-phase regeneration of the 1930s Peabody estate will increase the number of homes from 353 to 599 homes in total.

Sisk also built phase 1, which included 153 home, 73 of which are available for social rent.

The second phase will provide 198 affordable homes and a new community centre.

There will be 109 social rented homes, 54 extra care homes, and 35 offered for shared ownership to help people get on the housing ladder.

Designed by Hawkins\Brown architects, the new homes and community centre are due to complete in 2022.

Phase 2 will also include a public garden, a play area and a central public square.

Energy-efficiency measures include photovoltaic panels and a district heating system, both of which will contribute to Wandsworth’s aspiration to be a carbon neutral borough by 2030.  Around 10% of homes will be wheelchair accessible.
