  • New central atrium reception for the 40,000 sq ft additional office space in the Power Station

LONDON, 23 August 2017 - Alongside the 500,000 sq ft of the office space in the Grade II* listed Power Station which was pre-let last September, the team at Battersea Power Station is excited to announce that an additional 40,000 sq ft of office space has been made available in the centre of the iconic building. Before Battersea Power Station was decommissioned, this space was the engine room and consequently played a key part in the running of the Power Station.

Designed by WilkinsonEyre, the space will be set over two floors overlooking the light filled central atrium and will accommodate an extra 500 or so workers. Workers will be sharing the space in the building with a wide variety of retailers, restaurants as well as residents.

Andrew Hilston, Head of Office Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company said, “This is a great chance for a single business, coworking provider or business members club to occupy the remaining office space in the Power Station. This is also a unique opportunity to become part of our new community based in an iconic building, which provides an unrivalled address.”

Across the wider Battersea Power Station development, there is at least a further 750,000 sq ft of office space to come.

The Malaysian shareholders of the Battersea Power Station project are committed to giving back to the communities in which they operate. They recognise the importance of creating shared value and this is embedded in all their undertakings to ensure that they contribute to building a harmonious and caring community.
