Battersea Power Station leases the remaining 40,000 sq.ft. to a global luxury members club
A cosmopolitan members club has signed up to Battersea Power Station, leasing the remaining 40,000 square feet of office space within the Power Station. No18 will bring Nordic elegance into the Battersea Power Station development, as an exclusive members’ club that will sit next door to Apple in the iconic building, when it opens in 2021.
Known for beautifully designed lounges, meeting rooms, and high-end workspaces tailored to support all its members’ needs, No18 currently has two venues in Stockholm, Sweden. Since becoming part of IWG, a global operator of leading workspace companies that has a presence in over 110 countries, No18 has also secured a presence in the US and Switzerland during a gradual global rollout. As part of its expansion plans, the company has now secured its first presence in the UK.
Inspired by the Power Station’s rich heritage, No18 will create The Engine Room, a bespoke offering spanning across two floors overlooking the light-filled southern atrium. The Engine Room will look down into the two turbine halls that will house a selection of premium shops and restaurants.
Michel Gordin, CEO, and Founder of No18 described Battersea Power Station as a global icon and a perfect fit for the brand. As heritage meets novelty, Battersea Power Station will brim with stories that No18 will perfectly embody. Gordin highlighted that The Engine Room will be a concept that will complement the architecture of the Power Station building and provide a breath-taking environment – a true experience to visit – in which businesses and individuals can thrive in pursuit of the next big innovation.
“We believe this location fits our ethos to create a sanctuary where productivity, inspiration, and style converge. We are excited to be a part of it and to open our doors.” Gordin concluded.
The Power Station, anchor office tenant, Apple, and the residents living in the Power Station, will enjoy along with No18, the historic building in all its glory as it is being revamped to the highest standards.
No18 is a unique office space brand that provides a home for a rewarding business lifestyle. The company’s venues are akin to a blend of workspace and residence, with common areas featuring a unique eclectic aesthetic, serving as spectacular co-working spaces and casual meeting spots, and offices featuring the best conditions for work performance and potential for individual adjustments.
The interest from international brands and established companies have been tremendous for Battersea Power Station, since 52% of the one million sq.ft. of commercial space available in the Power Station building, has now been let as office space.
The Power Station will be the heart of the development since it will combine residential with retail and office to create a one-of-a-kind project that will exude innovation, elegance, and evolution. Heritage brands and emerging names will complement the vision of the 1930s and 1950s turbine halls to “empower” residents, members, visitors to a building that will be more like an experience connecting the past with the future.
Andrew Hilston, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said: “On behalf of our Shareholders, we’re very excited to welcome No18 to the remaining space in the Power Station as their first UK venue and believe this bespoke concept will offer an extraordinary place to work and do business.” “With Apple’s new London campus and now No18’s innovative, design-led offering moving here, Battersea Power Station is set to become the centre of one of London’s most exciting tech and media districts. Having these two brands signed up forms a strong base for the rest of the 750,000 sq ft of office space which will be delivered in our future phases.” Hilston underlined.
