In pictures: Battersea Power Station first phase
New images showing Ian Simpson’s and dRMM’s first instalment for the Battersea Power Station redevelopment in London have been unveiled
The fresh images went on show as the Grade II*-listed building’s owners started marketing apartments in the high-profile development.
The 102,200m² first phase includes a large glass-clad building designed by Ian Simpson which shares a podium with a smaller dRMM-designed timber-clad block.
Named ‘Circus West’, the project has 800 units in a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments. Offices, a theatre and shops are also planned.
Prices start at £338,000 for a studio and rise to £894,000 for a three-bedroom apartment. The first residents are planned to move in by 2016.
Local authority Wandsworth Council approved the project last month and construction is expected to start in September.
Rob Tincknell, chief executive of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: ‘We are incredibly excited to be welcoming the UK public to the site of one of Britain’s most iconic landmarks. Over the past few months, we have seen enormous interest in this unique development from potential purchasers, and we are delighted to be presenting them with an opportunity to be a part of what is sure to become a vibrant new town centre in the heart of London.’
The scheme is the first phase in Rafael Vinoly’s £8 billion masterplan for the Giles Gilbert Scott-designed building which has evaded redevelopment for the past 30 years.
