Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) Overview Battersea Power Station is at the heart of one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new developments, which will see this vast 42 acre former industrial brownfield site – which had been derelict for 30 years – become home to a community of homes, shops, cafes, offices and 18 acres of public space. The £8bn project will see the creation of a vibrant, mixed-use development – and a new town centre for London. It will offer places to live, work, and shop as well as cultural and event spaces interspersed with community facilities, open space and the revitalisation of the Power Station itself. It will transform this waterfront site into an exciting, authentic and attractive new destination for residents and visitors alike around the clock. The Power Station is expected to be open to the public for the first time in over 30 years in 2019. The overall project is divided into seven phases, and a range of specialist architects with different expertise have been brought on board to meet the various requirements for each of these, introducing diversity and interest. Construction work officially began with Phase 1: residential and offices, on Thursday July 4th, 2013 - the eightieth anniversary of this historic building. Work on the Power Station itself started in October 2013. The overall development is anticipated to BPS South West Chimney at 25m - BPS South West Chimney at 25m.
