What You Really Need To Know About The Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station will be open to the public for the first time in history, starting October 14th.

Electric Boulevard, which runs to a new underground station and continues on as a pedestrian high street will also be opening.

The closing date for Battersea Power Station has been announced and the event will be celebrated wearing 1930s outfits.

The group of newspaper hawkers that performed this announcement will be handing out limited editions of the Power Station Post to celebrate.

Ten golden tickets were hidden in the newspapers and, if found, the lucky person will be amongst the first to walk into The Gherkin and win two tickets to the LIFT 109 experience.

The LIFT 109 offers panoramic views of London’s skyline from its location on top of The Gherkin’s north west chimney.

Battersea Power Station supplied 5% of London’s electricity when it shut down in 1983.

Successful redevelopment

Successful redevelopment attempts have been made, but the most recent one gave current shareholders an opportunity to invest.

The building is now restored and it will be secured for generations to come.

Battersea Power Station will soon have one of London’s most exciting retail and leisure destinations.

It is a historic building located in Chelsea.

The two restored halls offer completely different interior designs, based on the year that they were completed.

Battersea is a new shopping mall in London with a variety of international brands, such as Hugo Boss, Theory and Lacoste.

The Boiler House, a key part of the Grade II* listed building, will be home to 24,000 sq. ft. of food and beverage outlets that are set to open in 2023.

These will complement a great mix of bars and restaurants already available at Circus West Village which is an early part of the regeneration process for Battersea Power Station.

These include Suken Gopal’s Roti King to Ray Wright Brothers, Fiume Francesco Mazzei’s and Cinnamon Kitchen by Vivek Singh.

Once fully restored, the Power Station’s Control Rooms will bring an event space and all-day bar.

Control Room B will feature interactive control stations.

Battersea Power Station is set to be a go-to leisure destination, with a host of entertainment venues including The Cinema at the Power Station.

Electric Boulevard

Electric Boulevard is a new high street location.

It will offer outlets for businesses, office space, shops, restaurants, public hub, and a hotel.

The retail options are already announced for the next few years and include Zara Clothing store, M&S foodhall store and Third Space Fitness club.

Simon Murphy, Chief Executive Officer at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said:

“This is a monumental announcement to open the doors of one of London’s most iconic landmarks, Battersea Power Station. This Grade II* listed building has undergone extensive transformation to create an unparalleled destination for Londoners and visitors from all over the world.

Over 2,500 jobs will be created with the opening of the Power Station alone, with a total of 17,000 once the full project is completed.

Battersea Power Station has its own Zone 1 London Underground station, making it accessible from the West End and City with only a 15 minute commute. Battersea is also easily accessible on foot, by foot or by boat for visitors coming from elsewhere in London.
