The scheme has received strong support from a range of stakeholders including the Greater London Authority, English Heritage, CABE, and most importantly, the local residents and general public.

Rafael Viñoly’s masterplan will create a 10.1m sq ft mixed-use sustainable development with over 3,400 new homes and 1.7m sq ft of office space alongside 1.5m sq ft of other commercial uses including community, hotels, cultural, leisure, conference centre, shops and restaurants. At the heart will be the Power Station, restored and standing as a reminder of London’s industrial past.

The development will also include a new tube station on the proposed extension of the Northern Line from Kennington to Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station, the first ever privately funded extension to the tube network in Central London.

The scheme is expected to generate approximately 15,000 new jobs and training opportunities, and will create a self sufficient, vibrant and inviting new community, intended as a catalyst for the regeneration of Nine Elms – the largest Opportunity Area in Central London.

Nick, thanks for your valuable feedback, and it's great to have the point of view of an architect that lives next to the project. RVA came out with a project that keeps the emphasis on the power plant, while giving the developers a financially viable project.

I live just down the road from Battersea power station, and I can say without doubt that it is about time something was done to save this great building.

As a practising architect, I have a soft spot for what has become a dilapidated mega structure, on one of the prime river front locations of London. Ever since it was listed, its been a battle to come up with a design and concept that would do the great building justice. Whilst I don't think this is the greatest design, I do like their treatment of the power station itself and I'm glad that it will be given a chance to live on!
