The High Street - to be called the Electric Boulevard - will be home to the new Northern Line extension tube station at one end and the Power Station at the other.

Of the 1300 homes in this part of the development, just 103 will be affordable.

The five buildings to the east of The Electric Boulevard, to be known as “Prospect Place” which will house double-height retail units at street level, approximately half of the planned residential units, a community park and multi-use community hub.

“Prospect Place” will be anchored by the distinctive “Flower” building.

Gehry Partners is honored to have this wonderful opportunity to collaborate with our respected colleagues Foster + Partners on this seriously important project for the city of London.

Our goal is to help create a neighborhood and a place for people to live that respects the iconic Battersea Power Station while connecting it into the broader fabric of the city. We hope to create a design that is uniquely London, that respects and celebrates the historical vernacular of the city.

We moved our own office to Wandsworth almost twenty five years ago - the Borough is very important to us, so we were absolutely delighted to be chosen to be part of this inspiring regeneration project for the Battersea Power Station redevelopment.
