Battersea Power Station Development Company (“BPSDC”), on behalf of the shareholders of Battersea Power Station, is pleased to confirm the guide prices for the 254 homes planned for the iconic Power Station building itself and the latest new interior designs.
Ahead of the London-only sales launch on 1st May the confirmed guide prices are:
- Studio apartments will start from £800,000
- 1 Bed apartments will start from £1,000,000
- 2 Bed apartments will start from £1,500,000
- 3 Bed homes will start from £2,700,000
- 4 Bed homes will start from £4,000,000
- Penthouse will be POA
The 254 unique homes being built will be as distinctive as the building that surrounds them with their bold, beautiful and generously-sized living spaces. The residences will fall into two distinctive styles across three different locations of the building: The Switch House East, The Switch House West and at the very top -Boiler House Square.
A number of the apartments will sit within the original fabric of the building, amongst the exposed brickwork and industrial fittings, whilst the other element will be a panoramic, glazed style with incredible views positioned on top of the Power Station looking out over the river or back onto the famous Boiler House façade. All the homes will have access to over 1.5 acres of spectacular roof top gardens and a large number will also have their own private outdoor space. Homes located in the Boiler House Square will open on to a new ‘London Square’ on the roof.
Switch House East and West will lie on the longer, lateral flanks of the Power Station; there are few homes in London that will have a more impressive setting than these, and none will be as closely connected to the Power Station. Named after their original industrial function, the apartments sit where the great Switch House once harnessed and delivered the energy of the Boiler House.
To reach the vast entrance lobbies, residents and their visitors will cross a static water pool that encircles the entire Power Station, making every arrival to the building an occasion and generating a reflection that will enhance the visual presence of the building.
The other dramatic location for the new homes is ‘Boiler House Square’ on top of the tall, central Boiler House between the chimneys where there will be two new storeys of breathtaking design, built around an open, landscaped garden square with a central sculptural skylight. These homes will be reached through four magnificent top-lit sky lobbies some 23 metres high, each built into one of the historic wash towers that support the chimneys.
London based interior designers Michaelis Boyd Architects have designed the interiors creating a style for this building that they describe as ‘refined industrial-authentic, highly tactile and visually dramatic.’ The design takes simple, raw materials and expresses them through smooth finishes of the highest quality. From stunning wood flooring to polished concrete and raw brass fittings, every detail of the interiors will speak of the building’s heritage and design detailing which has made it such a famous example of art deco industrial architecture.
One of the most unique aspects of these new homes is the variety of sizes and layouts on offer. Within the 254 homes being created there will be over 100 different layouts with virtually no one apartment the same. Duplexes comprise around a third of the homes available which will offer purchasers more opportunity to maximise the incredible views of the building whilst also creating awe inspiring double height space and the sense of ‘loft living’. The apartments will be approximately 40% larger than the average new build developments in London.
Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of BPSDC, said:
“This launch is genuinely a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of a small number of very special bespoke residences that have been meticulously designed to reflect the quality and detailing applied to Giles Gilbert Scott’s original masterpiece.
“Being significantly larger than many other comparable new home residences in London and with the best in class design and specification, homes at the Power Station have been designed with a view to attracting owner-occupiers who want to be at the heart of the vibrant community planned for the Power Station.”
The Power Station is at the heart of the 40-acre mixed use development that will create 18 acres of new public space, including a six-acre public park, office space for 5,000 people, approximately 200 shops and restaurants and other state of the art leisure and recreation facilities. Specialist heritage architectural practice Wilkinson Eyre Architects is working on the physical restoration of the Power Station itself with preparatory work already begun.
The impressive Power Station building will be transformed into a unique luxury retail, office and gastronomic experience showcasing the very best in class and like nothing else in the UK. When completed the building will be open to the public with the Northern Line extension fully operating. The launch of the properties will be held in London only on 1 May 2014 as part of the shareholders’ commitment to London buyers. Prospective purchasers should register
