After years peering at (and through) the desolate but much loved Battersea Power Station we finally get a glimpse of how the old place (hopefully) will look when the £750 million development project is delivered in 6 or 7 years time... and the vision is breath-taking!
The images released include one of the iconic chimneys in use as a viewing platform that will rival the Shard, and the turbine hall devoted to small independent shops rather than the usual mega-chains. The imagery and art hanging from the ceiling of the turbine hall look to include Pink Floyd's pyramid from their album "The Dark Side of the Moon" (although a large inflatable pig would, of course, be strictly more acurate).
We at Silicon Junction are especially excited about this project; in many ways our purpose is specifically to garner an extensive collective of agencies and individuals working in the Digital Space that is effectively able to comprehensively service the new businesses coming to this part of Battersea.
The consultation will be held in The View building on the Power Station site from today (5th November 2013) until 10 December. The site Building.co.uk has more details on the proposals.
