Battersea Power Station has long been an iconic London landmark. As a symbol of both the UK’s industrial might and its postindustrial decline, it has been featured in films and on the cover of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album Animals. But the decommissioned station is set to take on new meaning once again, as it has been redeveloped with residential units, shops, restaurants, office spaces, and entertainment venues.
The revitalized station was opened to the public for the first time on October 14. New stores opened in October include Nike, Mulberry, Theory, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Aesop, Space NK, Hugo Boss, Jo Malone London, Uniqlo, Mango, and Battersea Bookshop. New restaurants include Le Bab, Where The Pancakes Are, Poke House, Clean Kitchen Club and Paris Baguette. While shopping, visitors can experience Battersea Power Station’s meticulously restored Turbine Halls as well as other aspects of the station’s nearly hundred-year history.
To the station’s south, Electric Boulevard, a new pedestrianized high street, will feature ZARA, ZARA Home, optician David Clulow, and Korean food and culture hub Oseyo. Coming soon to Electric Boulevard are M&S Foodhall and art’otel, a 164-room hotel featuring the restaurant JOIA, run by Michelin starred chef Henrique Sa Pessoa.
