A sneak peek inside Battersea Power Station’s luxury apartment

Battersea Power Station, with its peculiar, dark brickwork and stand-still chimneys, was built back in the 1930s and has become a defining mark on London’s skyline for almost a century. However, it has remained empty since 1983, despite a number of failed attempts to redevelop the site. After years of efforts, a Malaysian consortium of investors known as the Battersea Power Station Development Company has laid the plan to turn it into luxury accommodation and leisure development, which got approved.

After regeneration, the 42-acre site will generate around 4,000 apartments, three hotels, more than 250 shops, and restaurants, leisure facilities, and a six-acre riverside park. It will also have its own Tube station, to be built on Northern Line. Now let’s have a look at the luxurious apartments that are being built at Battersea Power Station development, which has been termed as an ultimate way to transform and preserve one of London’s most-loved landmarks.

Apartment in the power station varies widely both in price and size. The open-plan living space inside the luxury flats will be as spacious and stylish as it is promised. An apartment has been created at Battersea Power Station in the first half of 2016, designed by architect Frank Gehry, to showcase how future apartments will look like. Gehry designs include a cluster of five buildings with sculptural facades inspired by London’s famous John Regency terraces. Potential investors can visit to check the development’s winter gardens and a residents’ club, which includes extensive social lounge, library and workspace.

Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said:

“This is an exciting day not just for London but for the UK as it will offer the first glimpse into the world of Gehry here at Battersea Power Station. Everyone involved is delighted to be able to show people the extraordinary craftsmanship and design from this exemplary architectural team which is bringing its world-famous innovation to London.”

Another striking feature of this development is that each phase of this development has been designed by different yet renowned architects from across the world. The redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, which will cost £9 billion, will see the 42-acre site transformed into a luxury riverside town for thousands of buyers. The entire project, which will feature 103 affordable homes, is expected to be completed by 2025.
