Iconic Battersea Power Station celebrates public opening
The Grade II*listed Battersea Power Station and Electric Boulevard, a new high street for London, officially opened to the public for the first time ever this October, with the first wave of shops, bars, restaurants and leisure venues.
In 2013, against global competition, we were appointed as project manager to support Battersea Power Station Development Company in the design and delivery of the first two phases and for extensive, site-wide infrastructure as part of the 42-acre regeneration.
The first phase, known as Circus West Village, was completed in 2017, and consists of 865 apartments, as well as an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, a theatre, cinema, fitness and leisure venues.
The second phase is the restored, Grade II* listed, and world-famous Power Station, which is home to over 100 shops, bars, restaurants and leisure venues, 254 apartments, unique events and office space, including Apple’s new 500,000 sq ft. London campus. Plus, Lift 109, a glass elevator which transports visitors to the top of the Power Station’s north west chimney, offering 360-degree views of London and a 24,000 sq ft Arcade Food Hall (due to open in 2023).
Steve McGuckin, Director said:
For nine years our project management team has worked closely with Battersea Power Station’s shareholders and their expert development team to deliver this unique, world class project. Recently described as ‘The Everest’ of the Real Estate industry, this outstanding regeneration has demanded a strong vision, teamwork, skill, and resilience from each of the many contributors. It is an exceptional achievement.
Battersea Power Station is the centrepiece of a new ‘15-minute’ live, work and play neighbourhood. It is a new town centre for the immediate and wider local communities, a new business quarter for the capital and an experiential destination for Londoners and international visitors.
The new Zone 1 Battersea Power Station Underground station has also improved connectivity in this area of London, bringing the Power Station within 15 minutes of the West End and the City.
