Sinn Fein Foyle MLA Karen Mullan.

The complex consists of 12 one and two bedroom units.

Karen Mullan said “As a local resident I welcome transformation of what was once a vacant scare site which blighted this area for years.

“On this land on once stood the home of leading Derry Nationalist politician Eddie McAteer.

“I visited the site with Cllr Kevin Campbell and we were pleased to see the time and effort that went into the design of these homes to compliment the rest of the street.

“It is also great news that these new homes will shortly be allocated.
