Mossessian & Partners and AECOM have released images of their proposals, drawn up for veteran developer Godfrey Bradman, to redevelop Battersea Power Station
Bradman’s consortium DCVV was pipped to the post by the Malaysian development team SP Setia and Sime Darby who officially snapped up the site last week (AJ 05.07.2012).
The £400 million deal also torpedoed a rival bid backed by Alamcantar and masterminded by KPF to convert the Grade II*-listed brick power station into a new home for Chelsea FC.
According to Mossessian & Partners, its concept was to ‘create a new town centre, a ‘three-dimensional Chelsea’ urban model comprising high-density residential, community and retail facilities directly accessible from the new tube extension terminal’.
The project would have kept the shell of Giles Gilbert Scott’s riverside power station, with its void ‘sculpted into a public urban room for community use.’
