Battersea Power Station

The redevelopment of Battersea Power Station in London has taken a step forward with the appointment of Turner & Townsend as project manager and employers agent for the initial phases. The project will create a new community with homes, shops, offices, space for the arts and a 6-acre riverside park. It will be served by a new Underground station and river-bus services.

Rob Tincknell, chief executive office for Battersea Power Station Development Company, said, ‘Battersea Power Station is one of the world’s most recognised buildings, and it’s the last central-London riverside location of this size to be redeveloped.’

Phase 1, also known as Circus West, is a mix of 800 apartments with one to three bedrooms, shops community and cultural spaces designed by Ian Simpson Architects and de Rijke Marsh Morgan. The first residential occupancy is expected to be in 2016.

Circus West residents will have access to a 460 m2 private residents’ club designed by David Linley.

Preparation work to the west of the 39 acre site has started, with construction expected to begin in the second half of 2013. This will coincide with the start of the renovation of the Grade 2 listed power station.
