|Thursday, 10 January 2013|
The first properties that will be built as part of the development of Battersea Power Station, one of London’s most iconic landmarks, have gone on sale.
Battersea Power Station Development Company has launched its UK sales programme for residential apartments and houses in a range of sixes and prices in the first phase of the Rafael Vinoly project which will be ready for its first occupants in 2016.
Called Circus West at Battersea Power Station, it is a mix of 800 one, two and three bedroom apartments, townhouses and penthouses as well as a blend of offices, shops, leisure and hospitality designed by Ian Simpson Architects and de Ryke Marsh Morgan.
Prices start from £338,000 for a studio, from £423,000 for a one bedroom, from £613,000 for a two bedroom and £894,000 for a three bedroom apartment with first occupancy expected to be in 2016. The UK sales programme will be followed by sales exhibitions around the world in the coming weeks.
‘We are incredibly excited to be welcoming the UK public to the site of one of Britain’s most iconic landmarks. Over the past few months, we have seen enormous interest in this unique development from potential purchasers, and we are delighted to be presenting them with an opportunity to be a part of what is sure to become a vibrant new town centre in the heart of London,’ said Rob Tincknell, chief executive officer of Battersea Power Station Development Company.
Situated on the western side of the Power Station, Circus West at Battersea Power Station will be a thriving new community where people come to live, work, socialise and spend their leisure time. As well as over 800 apartments, suites, townhouses and penthouses across eight building, Circus West will have a range of amenities and services including art galleries, a Power Station Design shop, independent coffee shops, a boutique theatre, 35,000 square feet of creative business studios, a 15,000 square foot gym, an indoor swimming pool and a health spa.
Circus West residents will also have access to a 5,000 square foot private Residents Club designed by David Linley, the Queen’s nephew, which will have a bar, private dining space, library, business centre and a cinema.
Preparatory work on the first phase, which consists of eight core buildings to the West of the 39 acre site, has already begun with construction expected to commence in the second half of 2013.
This will coincide with the start of the renovation of the Grade II listed Power Station, the largest brick building in Europe and one of the most significant surviving examples of Art Deco architecture. It will form the central focus of the plan.
The site will also provide large areas of public open space including a new six acre riverside park that will provide direct access to Battersea Park and Chelsea via a new riverside pathway adjoining the existing River Thames Walk.
The site overlooks over 400 metres of London's famous River Thames, less than a mile and a half from the House of Parliament. It is directly opposite Chelsea and forms the cornerstone of London's last significant regeneration area, Nine Elms.
The development management of the project is being undertaken by British based management company, Battersea Power Station Development Company.
