Get your hands on this snazzy apartment and you will own a small slice of English heritage.
Battersea Power Station is the brick-built marvel that all Londoners harbour an illogical love for. It has stood empty since its chimneys issued their last sooty vapours into the skies of London in 1983, but now life is being breathed into the old beast again.
After decades of wrangling, and with more cunning plans coming and going than Baldrick could ever have postulated, work to turn the building into a mixed-use complex with luxury flats has finally begun.
Here are some of the first images of the apartment, which has been named The Power House, and will be used as a show apartment for the next phase of the project, which brings 254 luxury apartments to the power station.
According to the Battersea Power Station Development Company, throughout the apartments “there are simple, raw materials that continually refer back to the building’s art deco heritage whilst utilising the best in class of modern technology and specification. The palette takes inspiration from the classically elegant styling and evocative luxury of the 30s and 40s whilst reinterpreting them with a warm sense of luxury.”
A “handful” of the new flats are yet to find owners. Prices begin at a cool £980k.
