Wandsworth Council has received the latest plans for redevelopment of the Battersea Power Station site, drawn up by Rafael Viñoly architects.
The application covers the scale of planned buildings and structures, external appearance and landscaping in phase 1 of the development, which consists of two buildings of varying heights between eight and 18 storeys that will be built to the west of the power station on currently vacant land.
Plans have also been received for the internal configuration of residential units, parking and servicing and strategies for sustainability, energy and waste.
The development is set to provide 800 homes, a hotel, office studios, cafes, restaurants, bars, and leisure and fitness facilities in addition to a six-acre public park.
The masterplan covers regeneration of the 39-acre power station plot as well as regeneration of the listed power station, which is the largest brick building in Europe.The Battersea Power Station project was granted outline planning consent in 2011 and is part of the massive Nine Elms redevelopment.
Leader of Wandsworth Council and co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership Ravi Govindia said:
“The new owners picked up the keys just two months ago so it’s very encouraging to see the project moving ahead so quickly. This site is vital to the regeneration of the wider Nine Elms on the South Bank area and in particular the Northern Line Extension.
“Our planning team has started to go through the application documents in detail and is writing to local stakeholder to ask for their views.”
The Battersea Power Station site was purchased earlier this year by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprising S P Setia, Sime Darby and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).
