Inside the new Battersea power station apartments


The developers behind the revamp of Battersea power station have unveiled the latest prices and designs of the homes planned for the site.

Some 254 homes are planned for the landmark building, from studio apartments at £800,000 up to four bedroom homes at £4 million.

The details, released by the Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) on behalf of the shareholders of the 1930s art deco power station, come ahead of a "London-only" sales launch on May 1.

Guide prices for the homes also include one-bedroom apartments from £1 million; two-bed apartments from £1.5 million; and three-bedroom homes starting from £2.7 million. A penthouse price is available on application.

The old power station, which sits on the banks of the River Thames, has become one of London's best-loved landmarks, with numerous failed attempts to revive the Grade II listed building over the past three decades.

Now owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors, the 39-acre site is being completely redeveloped to include a six-acre public park, office space for 5,000 people, around 200 shops and restaurants and leisure and recreation facilities.

The homes unveiled today - said to boast "bold, beautiful and generously-sized" living spaces - will fall into two styles across three different locations of the landmark building - The Switch House East, The Switch House West, and Boiler House Square at the top.

A number of apartments will sit in the original fabric of the building, among exposed brickwork and industrial fittings, while other homes, in a "panoramic, glazed style" will be on top of the power station looking out over the River Thames, or back onto the famous Boiler House facade.

All of them will have access to more than 1.5 acres of roof top gardens while many will have their own private outdoor space.

Boiler House Square will be on top of the tall, central Boiler House between the chimneys with two new storeys built around an open, landscaped garden square with a central skylight, while Switch House East and West will lie on the longer, lateral flanks of the power station.

The interiors have been designed by London-based interior designers Michaelis Boyd Architects, who describe the style as "refined industrialauthentic, highly tactile and visually dramatic", and will be around 40% larger than average new build developments in London, according to developers.

BPSDC chief executive Rob Tincknell said: "This launch is genuinely a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of a small number of very special bespoke residences that have been meticulously designed to reflect the quality and detailing applied to Giles Gilbert Scott's original masterpiece.

"Being significantly larger than many other comparable new home residences in London and with the best in class design and specification, homes at the Power Station have been designed with a view to attracting owner-occupiers who want to be at the heart of the vibrant community planned for the Power Station."

The launch of the new properties at Battersea Power Station will be held in London only on May 1 as part of a commitment to prioritise UK buyers.
