Battersea redevelopment plans go on show

Battersea redevelopment plans go on show

Public consultation has started on the £800M redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, which will create a new town centre for the south London area with its own High Street, town square and Underground station once a proposed £870M Northern Line extension is completed. Some 15,000 new jobs are expected to be generated by the redevelopment.

 

Carillion has already won a £400M first phase contract and Mace is managing a £100M programme of enabling works to rebuild the shell of the long defunct Sir Gilbert Scott designed power station and repairing its masonry envelope. Work on dismantling the iconic chimneys will start in February with tenders for the main power station shell and core to be invited by Battersea Power Station Development Company next year for a start on site in early 2015.

 

The overall redevelopment of the site according to a mixed use masterplan by Rafael Vinoly includes 3,400 new homes as well as offices, shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, community and leisure spaces and 18 acres of open space.

 

Detailed plans for phase one of the 39 acre site have been put on public display this week, following detailed planning consent being granted by Wandsworth Borough Council in December last year. Wilkinson Eyre's designs feature open and unobstructed turbine halls, a full height void to provide views of the chimneys from inside, a central atrium and a public viewing platform at the top of the north west chimney.

 

When the station is open again to the public in 2019 it will contain a state-of-the- art events space, shops and restaurants, offices and apartments and a 'garden space in the sky'.

 

A tender notice was issued for the proposed London Underground extension from Kennington to Nine Elms and Battersea in March this year and a pubic inquiry will start this month.
