March 9, 2015
Not ‘just another day at the office’: Battersea Power Station’s awe-inspiring atriums, innovative amenity spaces and impressive roof garden are set to redefine working in the capital.
Battersea Power Station Development Company (“BPSDC”) today launches its drive to attract world class tenants to the Power Station which is at the heart of London’s new office district, Nine Elms on the South Bank. The first detailed images are released of the stunning new office space and the impressive associated amenity areas for office staff within the Power Station.
With 1,250,000 sq. ft. of net lettable office space across the 42-acre site, workers will also enjoy access to shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, hotels, an urban food hall, a 2,000 capacity event space and leisure facilities including a 6 acre Riverfront Park.
At the heart of the estate is the Power Station which features 470,000 sq. ft. of office space on the six upper floors of the central Boiler House section. These larger than average floor plates of 80,000 sq. ft. will be set around a central glass atrium measuring 80m long, by 20m wide and 26m high. Original and new exposed brickwork will mix with the industrial heritage of the Power Station to offer inspiration to and fuel the ambition of the workforce it houses.
Architects Wilkinson Eyre and design practice The Rockwell Group have created some of the most awe-inspiring spaces for employees and their visitors. Set in the heart of the building at the base of the atrium, the Boiler House Lounge is an incomparable shared space with the industrial wow factor to spark ideas, create networks and broker deals.
Renowned landscape and garden designer Andy Sturgeon, working alongside site-wide landscape architects LDA Design, will create The Sky Garden set on the roof of Switch House East. The garden is accessible to office workers in the Power Station and will feature outdoor ‘boxes’ for meetings.
The Northern Line Underground extension opening in 2020 with a new Zone 1 tube station located 200m to the south of the Power Station will enable travel to the City of London (Bank) and the West End (Tottenham Court Road) in under 15 minutes. A new Riverbus connection is also planned to serve the development connecting with piers the length of the River Thames. Office occupiers in the Power Station will also enjoy access to a dedicated office cycle hub with hundreds of lockers, cycle spaces plus a bike repair shop, shower and drying room facilities.
Rob Tincknell, CEO of BPSDC, said: “The Power Station is at the heart of this new urban quarter for London and offers businesses a very special opportunity to re-locate. For over fifty years the Power Station was a hard-working engine room of London and we have designed its upper floors to be a power house of the future with state-of-the-art work and shared spaces to fuel imaginations.
“With new transport links and a whole host of exciting retail and leisure opportunities on the doorstep, the Power Station will be London’s most exciting destination and we are seeking the best possible business partners to join our community.”
