Battersea Power Station announces today that it achieved £480 million of residential sales in 2022, and a further £1.1 billion worth of properties completed and were handed over as the community grew to over 2,500 residents.
2022 was a pivotal year for the project, with the public opening of the Grade II* listed Power Station and Electric Boulevard, a new pedestrianised high street, on Friday 14th October 2022, and more than 3 million visitors have been welcomed since.
Battersea Power Station also completed residential apartments within the Power Station, Gehry Partner’s Prospect Place, the only residential building in the UK by world-leading architect, Frank Gehry, and the completion of properties in Battersea Roof Gardens by internationally acclaimed architects, Foster + Partners.
Koa at Electric Boulevard also launched in October 2022, just after the public opening of the Power Station and comprises 204 studio, one and two-bedroom apartments towards the southern-end of Battersea Roof Gardens. Over 80 apartments were reserved within just eight weeks of launch, demonstrating the continued high demand to purchase an apartment at Battersea Power Station.

Simon Murphy, CEO at Battersea Power Station Development Company, said:
“We are proud to have achieved nearly half a billion pounds of new residential sales in 2022, and more than one billion pounds of completions, demonstrating the significant demand to live at the new riverside neighbourhood that has been created at Battersea Power Station. This builds on over £400m of sales in 2021, making our total residential sales for the past 24 months just shy of £1billion.
2022 was a year for the history books for the project with the opening of the iconic London landmark to the public for the first time in history, as well as the new high street, Electric Boulevard. Coupled with the opening of the Northern Line in September 2021, we have achieved two of the most important milestones for this new area, and as a result, we’re attracting an ever-increasing number of residents to join the vibrant community which has formed.”
Creating a ‘15 minute’ live, work, play neighbourhood, Battersea Power Station is home to a great mix of shops, restaurants, bars and leisure experiences within the Grade II* listed landmark, on Electric Boulevard, and in the first phase of the regeneration project, Circus West Village. The first tranche of British and international brands to open at this new retail and leisure destination for London include Nike, Adidas, Reformation, Hackett, Sweaty Betty, Mango, Uniqlo, M&S Foodhall, neighbourhood bookstore, The Battersea Bookshop from specialist bookseller Stanfords, ZARA and ZARA HOME.
Since its opening on 14 October 2022, the Battersea Power Station has attracted more than three million visitors.
Battersea Power Station is also home to The Cinema in the Power Station, screening all of the latest blockbusters, and Lift 109, a one-of-a-kind glass elevator experience which transports visitors 109m to the top of the building’s north west chimney offering spectacular 360° views of the London skyline and River Thames.
