Dagenham jobcentre has been sold and will be turned into a housing development with a commercial unit on the ground floor.
The two-storey building in Chequers Lane was one of 21 jobcentres in London closed last year by the Department of Work and Pensions.
Hollybrook Limited revealed yesterday it has bought the building from Telereal Trillium who obtained planning permission for a seven-storey development with a total of 70 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom flats.
There will also be space for 14 parking spaces and a 1,886 sq ft commercial unit on the ground floor.
The site forms part of the South Dagenham West regeneration area.
Kevin Parsons, development director at Hollybrook, said: “We are delighted to conclude this deal.
“We intend to build out this scheme at the earliest possible opportunity.”
