Battersea Power Station Development Co.London, United Kingdom
The iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station and surrounding area is being brought back to life as one of the most exciting and innovative mixed-use neighbourhoods in the world.
It is at the heart of one of central London’s largest and most visionary new regeneration's, which will see this vast 42-acre former industrial brownfield site transformed into a community of homes, offices, retail, community facilities, cultural venues and 18-acres of public space, serviced by an extension to the Northern Line underground service. The overall project is divided into seven phases with each phase to be designed by a range of architects, including Frank Gehry and Norman Foster, and is anticipated to be completed in 2025.
Battersea Power Station is at the cornerstone of Nine Elms, the single largest regeneration site in central London and the capital’s up-and-coming diplomatic quarter with the US and Dutch embassies relocating to the area. Situated on London’s famous cultural South Bank and within a few minutes’ walking distance of Chelsea and Westminster, the development will create a sustainable and vibrant community in its own right, generating employment opportunities and investment in the surrounding area.
