In total, Phase 3 will comprise 1200 residential units, a 200 room hotel overlooking both the town square and the Power Station, 350,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space, a 15,000 sq. ft. library and further leisure space.

The development has been designed by two of the world's most famous architects; Frank Gehry and Foster + Partners.

This phase, 3 of 7, will form the epicentre of the entire project; two residential development zones located either side of the High Street.

Deptford Dockyard and Sayes Court Garden are also on the list.

Deptford Dockyard dates back to 1513 and was built on the orders of Henry VIII. It was the administrative headquarters of the Navy from the Tudor era and later became home to a burgeoning community of shipyard workers.

Sayes Court Garden was established by writer John Evelyn in south east London in 1653. The plot was once hailed as one of the capital's greatest gardens.

Battersea Power Station will be open to visitors for the last time for the annual Open House London weekend later this month.

The event over the weekend of 21st and 22nd September is free, and takes place between 11am and 4pm.

Rob Tincknell, chief executive of the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said:

"I wouldn’t be surprised if 10,000 people come over the weekend, if not more.”

It's only the second time the grade 2 listed building has been open to the public since its decommissioning in 1983. It's the last chance to see the boiler house and Turbine hall before the site's £8 billion redevelopment.
