Wilmott Dixon has been selected as a partner to build the homes on the site of the former Wednesfield High School on Lakefield Road, Wednesfield.
The new development, named ‘The Marches’, will see a collection of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes for sale, with a sales office set to open in June 2019.
Works are expected to start on “The Marches” scheme next month, with the first homes completed in early 2020.
The development forms part of WV Living’s plans to deliver more than 1,000 new homes across the city over four years.
Kate Martin, Director for Housing, City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “Willmott Dixon’s business commitment to social value and sustainable futures is a real strength and we are confident this development will also boost local business and skills, and add further pace to housing growth across the city.”
Simon Liversage, Director for Willmott Dixon in the Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be working with WV Living to develop and build over 260 new houses and apartments, creating new housing stock for the people of Wolverhampton.
“At Willmott Dixon, we also believe we have a purpose beyond profit and that includes leaving a lasting positive legacy in the areas where we work.”
