A vacant depot opposite McDonald's on Wandsworth roundabout is to be transformed into more than 100 new homes for first-time buyers and low income families.
Housing Association L&Q is set to begin building new homes in Eltringham Street after purchasing the land from Wandsworth Council.
Planning permission is already in place for the site, which has been used to store council vehicles for the past 30 years.
The homes are expected to be ready by the early part of 2015.
Andy Rowland, the housing association's land and projects director, said: "L&Q will build high-quality homes for people on a range of incomes, bringing new life to a disused site and creating a welcome addition to the local community."
It is also building 17 new affordable homes for rent on another site in nearby York Road that they have acquired in the same purchase deal with the council.
In total 158 homes are to be created on the two sites.
