Battersea Power Station goes for planning
A £5.5 billion plan for the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station in south London, masterplanned by Rafael Vinoly, has been submitted for planning.
The controversial 40ha scheme, for developer Treasury Holdings, will include 3,700 homes alongside 150,000 sq m of offices and 46,500 sq m of retail space.
The application was registered with Wandsworth Council on Friday and comes after an earlier design for the site, which included a 300m high “eco-tower”, was scrapped in February following opposition from London mayor Boris Johnson.
A new design for the site was unveiled in June, with a scheme which features buildings no taller than the power station itself.
In September, Treasury Holdings revealed it was preparing to hire up to ten different architectural practices to realise Vinoly’s masterplan.
Rob Tincknell, managing director of Treasury Holdings UK, said: "We are extremely confident that two years of detailed discussions mean that this masterplan represents the aspirations and concerns of all the stakeholders involved, not least the Battersea community."
