Battersea Power Station Redevelopment: Five Facts

£20bn injected into UK economy from regeneration of Battersea Power Station site 180,000 tonnes of construction material for recycling being moved by river saving 16,000 lorry journeys

Prices in phase 1 from £338,000 to £10m 20,053 jobs created

Total sales across Nine Elms £18 – £20 billion

A rooftop infinity pool boasting views over Battersea Power Station has been unveiled for the Foster + Partners-designed building proposed beside the historic London structure (+ movie).

The outdoor swimming pool will form part of a 160-room hotel that will be housed within The Skyline – a large mixed-use block designed by Foster + Partners as part of the third phase of development for the 17-hectare Battersea Power Station development site.

Billed as “the jewel” in the hotel’s crown, the pool will be located at the southernmost end of the building, right beside one of the old power station’s four iconic chimneys.

It will be set within a 250-square-metre roof garden designed by New York landscape firm James Corner Field Operations, which was also behind the High Line.

According to the Architect’s Journal, Copenhagen and New York-based BIG will makes its UK debut with the so-called Malaysia Square – a key public space within the £8 billion redevelopment of the decommissioned power station site.

Battersea Power Station Development Company has signed lifestyle hotel operator art’otel at its redevelopment of London’s iconic Battersea Power Station to be managed by PPHE Hotel Group and including an outdoor pool and bar overlooking the famous chimney stacks.

The final construction contract will have a value of more than £1 billion, making it one of the largest private building contracts ever to be awarded. Works are due to start on site in early 2016, alongside the on-going construction of Circus West (Phase 1) and the regeneration of the Power Station itself (Phase 2). Together, Phase 1, 2 and 3 will be the largest single development project in central London since Canary Wharf.

 Embassy Gardens is a new Thames-side development in Battersea – next to the famous power station – which is made up of about 2,000 homes.

Developers Ballymore and Eco World unveiled plans today for the breathtaking suspended swimming pool which will join the two blocks.

There are few development opportunities left in London that can offer the sheer scope of the Nine Elms site in Battersea. With the US government building their new embassy on 5 acres, we are developing the retained 15 acres and plan a bold 21st century mixed use development, drawing inspiration from the attractive residential and commercial estates which evolved over time in cities like New York and Boston – not inappropriate, we feel, as the new US embassy quarter will be a close neighbour. This will be a highly collaborative effort, calling for delicate and imaginative management of several different architect partnerships to create an entirely new district that Londoners can be proud of.
