Battersea Power Station – The Vibrant Future Ahead

Posted on 22 July, 2016 by admin

London is packed full of historical buildings that each define an era. Every piece of architecture tells a story and gives passers-by a glimpse into the richness of an awe inspiring city. Some buildings were, at one point in time, a pivotal role within the function of a city. Enter Battersea Power Station, a property with rich history, stagnant present and exciting future.Battersea Power Station - The Fiery Future Ahead Photo Source: Bigstock Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s and Battersea B Power Station in the 1950s, and were used as a way to generate electricity up until 1983. Situated on the South Bank of the River Thames in Battersea, the Grade II listed, former coal-fired power station has been a famous landmark in London for the past 50 years. It has been decommissioned for some time and seen a collection of redevelopment plans from various site owners. In 2004 a project by Parkview International was stalled and then the site Bouncy Castle for sale was sold for £400 million in November 2006 to Real Estate Opportunities. The aim was to build 3,400 homes across the site but circumstances led to that being dismissed. Then in 2011 it was put on the market through Knight Frank and once again sold for £400 million in 2012. Work commenced on residential apartments in 2013 with completion due in 2016/17. In 2015, it was reported that a 160 room luxury lifestyle hotel will be opened in Battersea Power Station in 2019, which would include a restaurant and bar, a roof garden and pool, accompanied with a beautiful view of London’s skyline.
