The Capital's biggest regeneration partnership has signed a 20-year pledge to create thousands of new jobs, apprenticeship places and business opportunities in Nine Elms.
The redevelopment of the area, on the South Bank, is expected to deliver around 22,000 jobs during the construction phase.
Once the building work is complete the area will support an additional 25,000 permanent jobs.
The regeneration zone includes more than 25 interconnected development sites, many of which are now in the construction phase.
