Battersea Power Station plans include new high street for London

The company behind the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station has unveiled plans for phase three of the development which will include a new high street for London.

The pedestrianised retail street, which will be known as The Electric Boulevard, will be the main gateway to the development and will connect the Northern Line extension station with the power station itself.

In addition to 350,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space, there will also be over 1,300 homes.

This third phase of the development has been designed by world-renowned architects Gehry Partners and Foster & Partners.

Ed Vaizey, Culture Minister, said: “Battersea Power Station is an iconic site and the unveiling of this exciting new design by Frank Gehry and Foster + Partners will ensure the development of this former industrial site will put Battersea on the world stage once again. The plans for a new high street for the capital show that London continues to attract the best in terms of architecture, design and innovation.”

Rob Tincknell, chief executive of Battersea Power Station Development Company, added: “Phase Three is an important part of our plans for the Power Station site, creating a new thoroughfare which will be at the heart of the new vibrant community.”

The Battersea Power Station master plan, designed by Rafael Vinoly, comprises over 3,400 homes as well as offices, shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, community and leisure facilities and 18 acres of open space.

Work began on Phase One of the development, known as Circus West, in July 2013 while work on the restoration of the Grade II listed Power Station itself is gathering pace, with the reconstruction of the first of the iconic chimneys to the original specifications due to start shortly.
