The scheme won the backing of the Homes and Communities Agency, the national housing and regeneration agency and has provided job and training opportunities for local people during construction.
Torbay Council donated the land below Barton Primary School and a grant of £700,000.
The homes will be available for a mixture of private owners, key workers, elderly people, the disabled, first-time buyers and part-owners.
