Battersea Power Station is one of London’s most iconic landmarks, and we are incredibly excited to be presenting buyers in Singapore with an opportunity to be a part of what is sure to become a vibrant new town centre in the heart of London.”

Situated on the western side of the Power Station, Circus West at Battersea Power Station will be a thriving new community where people come to live, work, socialise and spend their leisure time.  As well as over 800 apartments across 8 buildings, Circus West will have a range of amenities and services including art galleries, a Power Station Design shop, independent coffee shops, a boutique theatre, 35,000sq ft of creative business studios, a 15,000sq ft. gym, an indoor swimming pool and a health spa.

Preparatory work on the first phase, which consists of eight core buildings to the West of the 39 acre site, has already begun with construction expected to commence in the second half of 2013. This will coincide with the start of the renovation of the Grade II* listed Power Station itself, the largest brick building in Europe and one of the most significant surviving examples of Art Deco architecture. Completion of the first phase of the development is expected in 2016.

The site will also provide large areas of public open space including a new six acre riverside park that will provide direct access to London’s prestigious Chelsea neighbourhood via a new riverside pathway adjoining the existing River Thames Walk. 

The residential team at Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) has been appointed as international sales agent on the Battersea Power Station. In Singapore, S P Setia International (S) Pte Ltd. will join JLL in selling the apartments.

Doris Tan, Head of Residential International Project Sales at Jones Lang LaSalle in Singapore, said: "JLL Singapore is indeed delighted and honoured to be part of this iconic launch in Singapore. In my 20 years of representing London's developers, I have never had the opportunity to sell something as unique as an iconic development along River Thames and with so much history as Battersea Power Station." 
Battersea Power Station, the coal-fired power station that was decommissioned almost 30 years ago, has been described as a London landmark to rival St Paul’s Cathedral.

Notes to Editors:

The Rafael Vinoly designed mixed-use master plan comprises a careful blend of residential, offices, shops, leisure and hospitality. The iconic Battersea Power Station, a Grade II* listed building, will form the central focus of the plans and will be carefully restored with public accessibility at its core.

The 39-acre site overlooks over 400 metres of London's famous River Thames, less than a mile and a half from the House of Parliament. It is directly opposite Chelsea and forms the cornerstone of London's last significant regeneration area, Nine Elms.

The development management of the project is being undertaken by British based management company, Battersea Power Station Development Company.

Battersea Power Station received outline Planning Consent in August 2011. Phase One received detailed planning consent from The London Borough of Wandsworth on 13th December 2012.

Battersea Power Station is fully supporting the proposed Northern Line Extension and working in conjunction with Transport for London and UK Infrastructure to progress to a Transport and Works Act Order Application in the second quarter of 2013.


Phase 1 is designed by Ian Simpson architects and dRMM.
