[Sponsored Article] It may not be as lavish as Buckingham Palace, but for many Londoners and visitors, Battersea Power Station is just as iconic. Built from six million bricks with four tall chimneys, the facility supplied much-needed energy to London from the 1930s to the early 1980s, when it was decommissioned. Now, the former power station has been re-energized by renowned architects including WilkinsonEyre (Singapore's Gardens by the Bay). Updating Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's classic design with modern sensibilities, the heritage landmark has been transformed into one of Central London's newest and most exciting places to live, work and play. Centrally located in Zone 1, Battersea Power Station sits at the heart of a 42-acre neighborhood stretching along the banks of the River Thames. One of the largest mixed-use developments in Europe, more than 1,000 residents and 20 businesses have already made their home in the thriving community, which is preparing to welcome more residents as the latest phase approaches completion. Business quarter With more than 1.25 million square feet of office space and convenient international connections, the Power Station is a major new business address in Central London, a destination with a highly diverse and skilled workforce and flexible employment laws. Tech giant Apple has leased 500,000 square feet across six levels for its new European headquarters, opening in 2021. Of the 25,000 new jobs created by the wider Nine Elms regeneration area in the coming years, around 17,000 will be located within Battersea Power Station itself. The Prospect Park Community Hub will provide co-working spaces where entrepreneurs and other professionals can collaborate and innovate. Part of Battersea's appeal for businesses is its excellent transport links. The new Underground station, opening in 2021 will reach destinations in the City and West End within 10 to 12 minutes. The new high-speed Crossrail Elizabeth Line will be accessible via Tottenham Court Road station in 15 minutes for faster connections to Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf, while the Thames Clippers River Bus offers a more scenic route. Leisure hub Once complete, Battersea Power Station will be one of the largest retail and leisure destinations in London. The 42-acre site will feature more than 250 shops, cafes and signature restaurants as well as cultural venues, serving the local community and drawing people from across the city to this vibrant riverside quarter. Circus West Village is already open for business, offering a selection of artisan bars and restaurants alongside independent boutiques. Coming in phase three of the development, the Electric Boulevard will create a new high street of bars, restaurants and flagship stores. For nights out, a dedicated entertainment quarter will host year-round festivals and events at venues including a 1,500-seat event space and independent cinemas. London's Theatreland and the West End are within easy reach and it's just a short stroll to Battersea Park for 200 acres of green space, playgrounds and the Children's Zoo. Riverside neighborhood More than 1,000 people already live in Battersea Power Station at Circus West Village, the first phase of the development that also introduced an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops. All residents will have access to exclusive amenities at the Riverhouse private club, overlooking the Thames, and rooftop gardens with landscaping by James Corner Field Operations (New York City's High Line). A peaceful sanctuary above the bustling Electric Boulevard, the gardens include a rooftop pool, al fresco kitchen, Sky Lounge and private gym.
