Terry Farrell and Partners’ redevelopment of Lots Road Power Station in Chelsea, west London, has started on site – six years after being approved by then deputy prime minister John Prescott
The taller, 37-storey tower on the 4.6-hectare site’s western end is the first section to undergo work.
The project for developer Hutchinson Whampoa Properties also features a 25-storey tower at the site’s eastern end and 3.3 hectares of open space.
Featuring 821 apartments, the development will open 600 metres of Thames waterfront to the public. The regeneration of the historic power station building was designed by Formation Architects.
