Battersea Power Station is one of the biggest and most exciting developments in London today spanning 42 acres of former industrial brownfield site, which is being transformed into a community of homes, shops, cafes, offices and over 19 acres of public space. When complete it will offer 4,353 new homes along with over three million sq ft of commercial space.
