Mulalley is developing the properties in Oxlow Lane on behalf of Be First, the local council’s regeneration arm.
The homes will consist of 19 one-bedroom, 29 two-bedroom and 15 three-bedroom flats.
They will reportedly be “100 per cent affordable with 35 per cent on London Affordable Rent”.
Rent for a one-bedroom flat is going to start from around £160 a week and the homes will be heated by an air source heat pump meaning they will be gas free.
Leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, councillor Darren Rodwell, said it was “great to see work get underway on these new homes for local people ” when he attended the site.
“The rents will be among the lowest in London and with the new heating system, which will keep down energy costs, these homes will be among the most affordable in the capital,” he said.
“Due to a volatile political climate, gas prices are rising, so it’s even more important now our homes are energy secure.”
John Moore, Mulalley new build managing director, said: “Mulalley is proud to be working on the Oxlow Lane project for Be First, delivering much needed high quality, sustainable affordable housing to meet local needs.”
Building work is currently scheduled to be finished by December 2023.
