Sting and Trudie Styler buy luxury flat at Battersea Power Station

Sting and his wife Trudie Style have revealed they've bought a luxury flat in the new Battersea Power Station redevelopment.

The iconic landmark is being transformed into accommodation in an £8 billion redevelopment project designed by two of the world's most famous architects, Lord Foster and Los Angeles-based Frank Gehry.

According to the Evening Standard, prices range from £590,000 for a one-bed flat, £1.2m for a two-bedroom apartment, £1.9m for a three-bed, and £3.2m for a four-bed.

The luxury penthouse apartment prices are as yet unknown, but reports suggest they could fetch up to £30 million.

Sting announced he's bought a flat at the development during a launch party in New York to celebrate the London project, where he also performed.

According to the Mirror, he said: "I've been an Englishman in New York for most of my life, but last month Trudie and myself visited Battersea Power Station.

"I have never been that close. I found it to have a kind of austere beauty, a kind of steam punk beauty and, full disclosure, yesterday Trudie and I bought an apartment."

He added: "My former neighbours in London were the Queen, the Prime Minister, and they haven't complained. I don't practice in the house, I'm house trained. I'm not telling you which apartment it is, but it's very nice."

A couple of nights beforehand, Sting was also busy in new York launching his new musical, The Last Ship:

The couple's new flat will add to their already-impressive property portfolio, which includes multi-million pound homes in New York, Malibu, Tuscany and Wiltshire. The couple recently put one of their London homes, situated on The Mall, on sale for £15 million.

According to the Daily Mail, Trudie said: "The exciting development plans for the whole site are a great solution for the regeneration of an iconic London landmark which has been in decay for the last 30 years.

"We are both very pleased to be part of this new community and really look forward to making our London home at the Battersea Power Station."

The four chimneys at the power station will now be rebuilt over the next two years to transform the site into a hub of homes, shops, cafes, offices, and 18 acres of public space.
