An abandoned pub and block of run-down bedsits will be transformed into 45 new homes as part of Hackney Council’s regeneration programme.
The former Frampton Arms pub and Lyttleton House, both on the Frampton Park Estate, will be flattened to make way for the mix of social rent, shared ownership and private sale homes.
New play areas, waste and recycling improvements and cycle storage facilities will also be provided as part of the work, which is due to start next year.
Hackney Mayor Philip Glanville said: “I’m delighted we’re helping to deliver the new generation of genuinely affordable housing Hackney needs.
“We’re building more social housing than anywhere else in London, and our regeneration programme will bring thousands more properties to help our borough’s families find an affordable place a call home.
The estate regeneration programme is one of the UK’s biggest and will see nearly 3,000 new homes on 18 estates – replacing old council homes that are beyond repair.
The self-funding programme will see at least half of the new homes built be for genuinely affordable social rent and for shared ownership – with the private sales funding the rest of the project.
