Parkview revises Battersea Power Station plans (UK)

Parkview has submitted a revised planning application for its £600m redevelopment of Battersea Power Station. The famous power station itself, which has stood derelict and partly demolished since the mid-1980s, will be retained, while the site around it will also be regenerated as a mix of shops, restaurants, hotels, leisure facilities and office and residential space.

The 5.5m sq ft development will open up the power station’s south side and feature a new 550,000 sq ft office building and a 226,000 sq ft exhibition centre.

The site will also house a 2,000-seat underground theatre, above which a new public space will be created. In addition, there will be two hotels and between 500 and 700 apartments.

The plans also include two new entrances on the north side of the power station, connected by escalators and lifts to a new mezzanine floor within the nearby railway viaducts. A canopied, tree-lined walkway will run along Prince of Wales Drive and Battersea Park Road.

CB Richard Ellis and Davis Coffer Lyons are acting as letting agents on the scheme.
