In terms of size and grandeur, few London landmarks match Battersea Power Station, a truly imposing presence on the Thames waterfront. Superbly re-purposed as an elegant conglomeration of modern apartments, it is already attracting massive interest from corporate professionals looking for a home to rent in London.
Like the industrial icon that gives it its name, the Battersea Power Station property development, situated on the western fringe of the Nine Elms regeneration scheme, is a unique design. Winter gardens are arranged so as to form a ripple effect that cascades towards the Thames. This unusual design feature has a practical value as it enables each apartment to enjoy the maximum amount of natural light.
The irregularity of the exteriors means that all the one, two and three bedroom apartments possess interior dimensions that are unique, while still sharing the same high standard of craftsmanship and great views across the river. The ground floor area is dominated by interlocking gardens and sleek retail units that follow a gently curving thoroughfare, leading down to the Thames path. Private amenities include a resident's lounge, roof garden and gym. Neighbouring Chelsea is a high-end shopping destination and is also an area that is home to some of the best restaurants in the Capital.
Concerning connectivity, there are exciting times ahead for this newly regenerated stretch of Thames shoreline. The Northern Line is set to extend its Tube network from Kennington to Battersea Power Station, adding an extra station at Nine Elms. This will cut commuting times considerably and put the apartments within easy reach of the City, Docklands and the West End. Currently, trains run from Battersea Park to Victoria mainline terminus every five minutes. From there, the District, Circle and Victoria Underground routes enable passengers to connect with all main London destinations as well as Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
