Among commercial establishments expected to set up business in the space in the coming years are more than 250 shops, cafés and restaurants; a hotel; a community hub; event venues within the power station; an enormous food hall; and two medical centers. The masterplan allocates 18 acres to public space, including 450m of river frontage and a 6-acre public park.
The ongoing redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, a former industrial brownfield in the heart of London, is transforming 42 acres into a new town center surrounded by mixed-use developments and public spaces serviced by a host of public facilities. About 25,000 people will be living and working across the whole 42-acre site. The Battersea Power Station will open to the public in 2021.
A consortium of Malaysian investors owns the Battersea Power Station site. It includes Sime Darby Property, S P Setia and the Employees’ Provident Fund, with the latter and PNB owning the commercial elements of the Power Station. The British-based Battersea Power Station Development Company is managing the development of the project.
