Studio to 4 bedroom apartments at a range of prices available in the The Battersea Power Station.
The Power Station was sited very carefully when it was built. It was needed close to the centre, but had to be right on the river. It was to be very accessible, but not part of London’s congestion. The result is that the Power Station is in the heart of Central London and within 5 minutes of the Houses of Parliament. It is firmly within the Central Activity Zone, but is also in one of the capital’s most desirable residential neighbourhoods and surrounded by parks and gardens. And, with over 400 m of direct river frontage, it has a unique and extraordinary prospect.
Battersea Power Station itself sits at the junction of three important Central London Districts, and within an expanding transport network. The shops and destinations of Chelsea are within walking distance just across Chelsea Bridge, as are The Royal Hospital and Sloane Square. Battersea Park, Battersea Station and Queenstown Road Station are next door, providing frequent rail access to Victoria & Waterloo Stations. The Vauxhall Nine Elms area, immediately to the east, provides fast access to the City by road and by the overland and underground network at the Zone 1 Vauxhall transport interchange. London’s key airports are easily accessed – Heathrow by car along the A4, or by train from Paddington, and Gatwick by train from nearby Victoria. The greatest impact will be the completion of a new Northern Line Extension to the London underground network, which will begin at Battersea Power Station and connect into the wider Tube network at Kennington. Confirmation that the UK Government will be providing a loan to fund the extension came from the Chancellor of the Exchequer in December 2012, and has been widely viewed as the one of the most important new infrastructure projects in the UK. In practical terms it will lead to a new Tube station being constructed at the foot of the Power Station’s new High Street.
Battersea Power Station is the pivotal junction between the established identity and desirability of Chelsea and Battersea, and the extraordinary developments underway in the Vauxhall Nine Elms corridor. With one foot in each place, Battersea Power Station has the power to derive benefit from and provide benefit to them all. The houses and residences in Chelsea and Battersea are some of the most desirable in London, and all are within a few minutes of the Power Station. Furthermore the Vauxhall Nine Elms Opportunity Area on the eastern edge of the Power Station makes up one of the largest city centre redevelopment plans in Europe. When complete it will include a new Nine Elms town centre, a redeveloped Covent Garden Fruit and Vegetable Market, an extension to the Northern Line and a new Battersea Power Station Tube stop, the new US Embassy, two new public parks, 1.5 million sq ft of retail, up to 15,000 new homes and 2.5 million sq ft of office space.
