Work is due to start later on a £5m project to build 52 new homes in Hull.
Plans for the development include 16 one-bed council flats and 36 two and three-bed housing association homes.
The council said the new homes form part of the Orchard Park masterplan for 115 new properties.
Elsewhere on Orchard Park, the Kinthorpe and Gorthorpe multi-storey flats will be refurbished and another two tower blocks will be demolished later this year.
Councillor Terry Geraghty, of Hull City Council, said there was a "big demand" for the new homes, which would "benefit the area".
Building work should hopefully be completed later this year, the council said.
