Battersea Power Station in figures

Did you know that St. Paul’s cathedral could fit inside the main boiler house of the Battersea Power Station? A true marvel of design, a British landmark, and a cultural icon, Battersea Power Station never ceases to amaze the world with its character and history.

Battersea Power Station is currently undergoing a massive revamp that is worth up to £8bn and will gloriously lead to the rebirth of the icon and the creation of a new upscale riverside neighborhood. Once named the ‘Temple of Modern Power’, the Power Station is officially the most expensive building in UK history, as it currently valued at £1.6bn.

Besides its rich history and cultural legacy, Battersea Power Station is where the heart of the massive regeneration of Nine Elms beats. It is the centre of the £15bn revamp of the greater Nine Elms, Battersea and Vauxhall area that will completely transform South West London. As you might have guessed by now, the redevelopment is one of the largest projects in Europe and the numbers are truly staggering.
