Battersea Power Station goes global with brand quest tour

Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) is taking Battersea Power Station global with a worldwide tour in October and November 2014 to 13 cities in 11 countries. The aim is to find the most exciting UK and global brands, businesses and restaurants to bring alive London’s newest high street and the capital’s largest and most central development.

From Friday 31 October, representatives from the shareholders and BPSDC will host exhibitions in London, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Dubai, Paris, Los Angeles, Milan, Tokyo, Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Doha.

Phase 1 of the mixed-use scheme will open in 2016 and once the entire project is completed in 2025, the 42-acre development will be home to 25,000 people living and working on site.

With 40 million visits anticipated each year, Battersea Power Station will be one of the largest retail, leisure and cultural complexes in central London, with businesses on site forecast to contribute almost £1bn a year to the UK economy in the first 20 years of operating.

The 3.5 million sq.ft. of commercial space will include:
• 250 retail and food & beverage outlets planned for the development, with the first 40 operators to open in late 2016 in Circus West (Phase 1).

• 115 retail and food & beverage units will be set in the show-stopping setting of the Power Station, over the ground, upper ground and first floors of the Boiler House and the two Turbine Halls.

• Phase 3 of the development will see more than 50 large retail and food & beverage units open in 2020 to create London’s newest high street designed by Foster + Partners and Frank Gehry.

• Across the site, food & beverage operators will offer their fare through a range of concepts - from food stalls, pop-ups, cafes, fine dining and food markets. In the Power Station a whole floor will be devoted to a bespoke mix of food and beverage brands.

• Leasing the state-of-the-art leisure facilities including a new 2,000 capacity Riverside event venue for London located within the middle floors of the central Boiler House of the Power Station; two boutique hotels, 60-rooms in the Power Station and 167-rooms in the Foster + Partners designed Battersea Roof Gardens building; an observation lift and viewing platform planned for the North West chimney of the Power Station; cinemas, music venues, members clubs and health and fitness.

• With over 1.62 million sq. ft. of office space to lease across the 42-acre development, Battersea Power Station will become London’s newest office quarter.
