If you are interested to own a piece of British history or yearn to live next door to a celebrity – there is no better place than investing in an apartment in Battersea Power Station. The Art Deco inspired coal-fired power plant was lain empty until 2014, when a master regeneration plan was approved to massively transform the Grade II listing building. The idea was to give a whole new dimension to the global landmark to completely transform its purpose while retaining its glory and unique historical contours.
A massive transformation
Do you know that £9 billion are being invested in the re-birth of Battersea Power Station? Now you can understand the scale and estimated value of this magnificent project, even though the numbers are staggering but so is the development level. From a power plant, the red bricks development is being converted into residential units, business centres, community clubs, corporate office spaces, restaurants, bars, entertainment spaces and high-end retail shops.
Battersea opened its doors to residents…
35 years after the iconic development was decommissioned, the Battersea Power Station has re-opened its doors to the first residents on May 24, 2021. Not just A-class residences but the development boasts sky gardens, a celebrity hair salon, and several other on-site facilities. The residents will move into the Switch House West section, the first major element of the Power Station to complete. The rest of the development will be completed in stages, with residents moving into the Boiler House and Switch House East in the coming months.
