Battersea Power Station Development Company (“BPSDC”) latest release regarding  the launch of the residential sales programme for Phase Two – the iconic Power Station building itself.

The launch of the Phase Two properties, which will only be held in London, will commence on 1st May 2014 at Battersea Power Station. Prospective occupiers will be required to register their interest at www.batterseapowerstation.co.uk or by telephone on 020 7501 0678 and to attend the allocated sales appointments in person.

Prospective purchasers are now invited to register their interest in living in one of the 254 apartments available in the refurbished Power Station. The properties will range from studio apartments to five bedroom penthouses. They will be situated within the existing facades of the western and eastern flanks of the Power Station and on top of the central boiler house. Those on the roof of the central boiler house will frame a spectacular new ‘garden in the sky’.

The decision to launch these homes in London solely follows the company’s decision to launch Phase 1, Circus West, in London first in January 2013, last year. The company has been committed to prioritising UK buyers from the outset of the development as part of the long term commitment to community building and place making.

The redevelopment of the Battersea Power Station site will create 15,000 new jobs, 3,500 new homes and a privately funded extension of London Underground at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.

Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of Battersea Power Station Development Company, commented:
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of a relatively small number of fantastic homes being created in the iconic Power Station itself. Having awaited development for thirty years, this famous London landmark is now being restored and given a new lease of life and will be home to events space, shops, restaurants, offices and a limited number of new homes.
There has been a lot of comment recently about London’s housing problems and we believe the only way to try and solve this is to build great homes and create a community that people actually want to live in.
We are proud to be launching these new homes in London only, and this decision is part of a wider strategy to create a product well-suited for owner occupiers and people who will help us create a real and lasting community here in Battersea.”

By being significantly larger than many other comparable residences and with thoughtful specification levels, homes at the Power Station have been designed with a view to attracting owner-occupiers who we believe will be attracted by the London landmark.
The Power Station is at the heart of wider 40 acre mixed-use development that will comprise office space for around 5000 people, approximately 200 shops and restaurants, a state-of-the art performance venue, cinema and a boutique hotel all set amongst 18 acres of public space including a new six acre riverside park.

The architects working on the restoration of The Power Station is specialist heritage architectural practice Wilkinson Eyre Architects – one of the UK’s leading practices based in London. The practice has designed a diverse number of projects internationally and is particularly well known for The Royal Ballet School ‘Bridge of Aspiration’ and the University of Oxford’s New Bodleian Library.
Preparatory work on The Power Station has already begun and when completed the building will be fully restored and open to the public with the Northern Line extension fully operating.

Prices for the new homes will be released in April. For sales enquiries please contact the Battersea Power Station on telephone: +44 (0)20 7501 0678 or email: sales@bpsdc.co.uk; www.batterseapowerstation.co.uk  Twitter @batterseapwrstn
