Battersea Power Station announces further stores opening next year
Battersea Power Station has announced a further wave of global retail brands set to open their doors in the historic landmark next year.
Ray-Ban, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Aēsop and Calvin Klein are among the latest brands that will be joining the Grade II* listed building.
Simon Murphy, CEO of Battersea Power Station, said: “Our vision was always to bring together an eclectic mix of brands, services and experiences that provide unforgettable experiences and memories for everyone who visits, whether they are there to live, work or play, and we cannot wait to open the doors to everyone next year.”
The newly announced brands will join a line-up of retailers already set to open at the power station next year, including Hugo Boss, MAC Cosmetics, Space NK, Watches of Switzerland and Jo Malone.
A 25,000 sq. ft food hall offering an all-day dining experience will also open in the Boiler House, at the heart of the power station.
The store openings follow the recent Northern Line Extension and the power station’s first residents moving in at the start of the year.
The Power Station is part of a new "15-minute live, work and play neighbourhood", which will act as a town centre for the community.
The successful regeneration of Battersea Power Station will create 20,000 new jobs, generate long term career opportunities for local residents and inject £20bn into the UK economy. A new NHS medical facility is also being built.
Sam Cotton, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station, said: “We are undoubtedly experiencing the most exciting year yet in the transformation of Battersea Power Station.
“Battersea Power Station is well on its way to becoming one of the most prominent new neighbourhoods in the world and to have this endorsed by such an impressive collection of British and international brands is testament to the continued appeal of this unique project.”
Following these latest signings, 82% of the commercial space at Battersea Power Station is now let, with more than 70% of the retail and leisure space either exchanged or under offer.
